Jen Von Klitzing is an Australian tattoo artist who currently tattoos out of Unikat in the hip and awesome Neukölln neighborhood of Berlin. I caught up with Jen to chat about her work, Berlin, and pin-up girls with a twist.
Jen started tattooing in early 2015, a year after she moved to Berlin to pursue her art. Her work is mainly comprised of blackwork, with crisp and excellent outlines. Her images are inspired partly by old photographs and commercial art from the 70's and 80's, as well as some fine illustrators. Although she currently resides in Berlin, Jen plans to return to Australia to pursue tattooing there. So if you're not in to 24 hour plane rides, make sure to catch up with Jen while you still can!
"Taking a different approach to pinup is something I'm really interested in."
Some of Jen's coolest tattoos are pin-up style, but with a twist. "I really like tattooing these strong sexy women flashes I have been drawing lately", Jen tells me. "I think the pinup is such a solid tattoo, it's just got my own spin on it...Taking a different approach to pinup is something I'm really interested in."
