My name is Jessica Valentine. I’m a tattooer and the owner of Haven, an exclusive studio in Brooklyn. I’ve been working various jobs within this industry for over 15 years now with 10 dedicated solely to tattoos! I specialize in both traditional and fine line tattooing, as well as cosmetic tattoo work.
After working in an environment that wreaked toxic masculinity, hearing horror stories from my female clients about their past negative tattoo experiences I decided something needed to change. It is important for people’s bodies and emotions to be celebrated rather than judged or shamed. I created Haven to be unlike any shop I’ve ever worked at. It’s 100% FEMALE OWNED and OPERATED, and it is meant for all body types, sizes, and colors!
I am extremely fortunate to have been featured in the media, including The New York Times and Elle Australia.
