My name is Jennifer Bohlander and I am passionate about the body art industry and the world of art and artists. I have been tattooing for over 20 years and painting my entire life. Being blessed to have a creative outlet is extremely important to me and even though I do it for other reasons, I have been humbled to have won awards for my work over the years. Before becoming a tattoo artist, I was a Russian linguist in the U.S. Army. Studying the Russian language and culture brought me an appreciation of different world perspectives and approaches to art. My vision of how to bring this passion to others has resulted in Matryoshka.
Matryoshka represents all that I find beautiful about differences in people and how what you see on the surface may not be the whole story. Each layer is an expression of individuality and experience. Within these walls I hope you will feel appreciated for however you choose to express yourself, and be encouraged to discover what is inside of you.
My shop can be found in the center of the NOTO arts district. NOTO has somehow captured the best of Topeka and put it all in one place. It has an eclectic and inviting atmosphere that you need to experience yourself. For a truly fun time, be sure to come by on First Fridays.
