Jenn Small is a native North Carolinian, hailing from the Greensboro area, she moved to Charlotte in 2004 and started tattooing in 2007. Jenn worked in a tattoo shop 10 years ago without a tangible plan and is now one of Charlotte’s most sought-after tattoo artists. Her creativity and use of color is jaw dropping. Jenn currently tattoos at Made to Last Tattoo in uptown.
I was on the search for a tattoo artist to interview and Jenn Small came very highly recommended. I do not have any tattoos but have always toyed with the idea and I know I am not alone. It can be intimidating to take the initial step into a tattoo parlor. I think this talk will be valuable to anyone who is interested in tattooing, getting a tattoo, and hopefully, we can open minds to those with pre-conceived notions about the art form and the culture that goes along with it. I want to know who is getting tattoos, what they are getting, and why? I can’t wait to ask her about one of her most recent creations, a Squirtle (is he a proper noun? ha-ha) caught in a Poke-ball.
Jenn is a Plaza Midwood dweller, crafter, animal lover, and bad pun enthusiast. Tattooing is one of our oldest and most striking forms of personal expression. I am excited for the chance to sit down with someone who is well respected in the field and has such a passion for it on my next Not Your Boyfriend’s Radio Hour, Monday, August 22nd, airing LIVE on Charlotte Community Radio.
Not Your Boyfriend’s Radio Hour, hosted by Amelia Coughlin, airs every other Monday from 7:00pm to 8:00pm via CharlotteCommunityRadio.org, CLTCRadio.org or Mixlr.com/CLTCRadio where you can chat with our hosts.
