Modern tattooing by machine is a highly spiritual and sacred rite of passage. Jessica Lynn Henry is honored, as a fat and queer artist, to carry on this timeless tradition of adornment and self-reclamation through a lens of inclusivity, intention, and care.
Jessica was born and raised in an extremely conservative closed religious community in northern Utah. After her great escape at a young age, and her many adventures around the globe, she settled down for a moment and began her apprenticeship at (the now defunct) Sailing Saint Tattoo in Sitka, Alaska. She eventually relocated back to Washington and is thrilled to have found a wonderful home and community of artists at in the Central District of Seattle.
The sublime and untamed wilderness of the Pacific Northwest has been a huge inspiration for her art. She is also inspired by the mythos and mysticism from various religious, spiritual, occult, and philosophical traditions.
Jessica views tattooing as a ritualistic practice and is honored to help people, especially queer and marginalized folks, reclaim and celebrate their bodies through this sacred form of magical adornment.
