JENNY HELM - Owner/Tattoo Artist
Jenny Helm is a local Fox Cities native and lifelong lover of all things creative. Backed by a degree in graphic design, Jenny is a tattoo artist specializing in color and detailed linework, providing a twist on traditional and neo-traditional styles. She did her apprenticeship in Chicago, IL, and shortly after moved back to the Fox Cities where she worked at various shops throughout the valley. Jenny has also done a great deal of graphic design work for local businesses and publications for well over a decade. An artist at heart, her favorite mediums to work in are watercolor, acrylic, and digital design/illustration. Jenny enjoys the personal and professional relationships that her work in artistic venues have allowed her to foster, and credits her love of coffee, her husband and her pets for helping her stay positive and inspired to continue creating for both herself and her clients.
Jenny's infectious energy and wit - as well as her focus on providing a fun and comfortable tattoo experience - makes her a standout with clients. Her customer service philosophy is simple: "It's never lost on me what an honor it is that people who come to me are trusting me to put something on them permanently. They deserve the best I have to give them on all fronts - with my art, my tattooing, and the experience they have with me from beginning to end."
The WeMeraki philosophy is an extension of Jenny’s passionate for both the artistry and the service of tattooing. “The feeling I get when a client leaves the shop after making the choice to get tattooed by me inspires me to be a better artist and person,” she explains. “The reasons behind the tattoo - the stories we share, the trials and triumphs, the pride, the connection we build and the trust built between us is all part of experience for them AND for me. I love what I do and my clients are a major part of my why.”
