About the Artist 

Hello! I’m Jenna Bee!

I have been professionally piercing since 2015, and own Celestial Piercing inside of Big Guns Tattoo in Appleton, WI. I have a rescue mutt, Lupin, and two kitties at home. I’m also, a HUGE jewelry enthusiast, with certifications from GIA. Aside from that, when I’m not working or making art, I’m also a traveling human body suspension artist! I’ve traveled all over the U.S. performing at tattoo conventions.

When did you start pursing art? What sparked your interest? 

I started creating when I was in elementary school; my childhood friend drew nonstop and taught me how, that was the start of it. Creating is a form of release for me, it’s very therapeutic and I love making other’s envisions come to life!

What is your favorite medium? Why? 

Skull work; there is beauty in every death. I loooove stones and semi precious gems, so being able to work with them in multiple areas of my life makes me happy. Its that simple.

Is there a medium you would like to try that you haven't?

Tattoo machine work on wood!

Besides creating what other hobbies/interests do you have? 

Well, 94% of my life is creating in some sort of form. Weather it be piercing, making art, or performing. Outside of that I love hiking/camping, spending time with friends and family, and binge watching Netflix shows/movies.  

Favorite: 

Color : Forest green Guilty pleasure snack : Kimchi instant ramen / coffee Movie : LOTR / Harry Potter, E.T. / Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck 

Advice for others wanting to pursue a creative career?

I can say it's not an easy career to pursue for sure, but do it. It's going to be hard, but it's going to be rewarding and worth it in the end. Make goals, research, advertise, most importantly never stop learning about your trade.
