Kylie Jenner's Tattoo Artist JonBoy Delves into Fashion
We catch up with the West 4 artist to talk about his recent denim collab with GRLFRND.
Establishing a name for himself as “fashion’s go-to tattoo artist,” pieces by NYC-based JonBoy can be seen on the likes of Bella Hadid, Kylie Jenner, Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber. Continuing his foray into the world of fashion, JonBoy recently teamed up with premium denim label GRLFRND for a unique collection of hand-painted pieces. Infused with his distinctive tattoo style, the range of jackets and jeans highlights the artist’s unique designs.
Catching up with JonBoy (real name: Jonathan Valena) at the collaboration’s launch earlier in March at colette‘s Paris flagship, we asked the celebrity tattoo artist how he connects with his sitters, as well as what his most memorable piece of work has been.
