Meet Jackie Matikas: An Entrepreneur Taking the Tattoo Industry to Another Level with Pretty in Ink

As a millennial mother of two, and social butterfly, Jackie manages to do it all. How? Her hustle. She has fearlessly built her brand on little sleep and lots of rule-breaking. She leveraged her skills to claim her space as a social influencer and is constantly looking to establish meaningful relationships with other go-getters. If you ask Jackie what her favorite part of entrepreneurship is, it would be – freedom. She loves the ability to work on the go and is the woman, in the corner of ballet class, rooting her children on with a laptop and a smile. You must agree, it doesn’t get any better than that. With 14 years under her belt in the tattoo industry, Jackie has developed her passion into a working business, evolved as an artist, and established her own style! Her current project is pouring her skills, lessons, and knowledge into other women and creating a girl gang of amazing artists, with great customer service and even better vibes and energy. Jackie loves being able to work with clients to help them design custom tattoos to commemorate people, places, events, stories, and milestones in their life knowing that her work will forever be seen and appreciated.
