Who is Cleo Wattenström

Cleo Wattenström is a Swedish-American tattoo artist best known for her detailed black and grey work which has ushered her into some of the distinguished tattoo conventions internationally. With her office located in Southern California, Cleo has made a name across all American states with her tattoo style which is generally considered as a unique form of arts.

Life Before Fame

Born on June 12, 1992, Cleo is also a Belgian. She grew up in Brussels’ largest city but had to travel to different places with her parent before they finally settled in Stockholm, Sweden. At that time, she was just 14 years. Having settled with her parents, Cleo, who already has a passion for tattoos following her exposure to varieties of cultures looked for places she could work as an apprentice so as to perfect her skills as a tattoo artist. She also speaks of black and white photographs and movies as her main sources of inspiration.

Cleo’s love for arts pushed her out of the walls of the classroom. According to her, she dropped out of school to search for people and places so she could learn more about becoming a tattoo artist. While practicing her desired career, she also ventured into modeling. She has even posed for glamour, retros and horror genres of books, and has made it to covers of several fashion magazines both locally and internationally.

As a celebrity in her own right, Cleo Wattenström has gathered some wealth for herself though she is yet to reveal how much she is worth. But generally, we know her wealth will not be as much as that of her husband which stands roughly at $6 million.

On the other hand, Cleo Wattenström is known for being Joel Kinnaman’s wife and has maintained that status for a long time. Joel Kinnaman is a famous actor from Sweden. He was born in Stockholm, Sweden and his name in full is Charles Joel Nordström Kinnaman. The actor is multiracial – from his mother’s side, he is of Jewish descent and from his father’s side, he is of Irish, English, German and Scottish ancestry.

The Swedish and American actor is best known for his roles in films like Easy Money, Arn – The Kingdom at Road’s End, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Suicide Squad and many more. He even won the Guldbagge Awards in 2011, as the Best Actor, and was nominated for the 2012 Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor on Television.

Apparently, Joel Kinnaman and Cleo Wattenström started dating in December 2014 but they were seen together for the first time in August the same year. Two years after, precisely in April 2016, they said yes to each other in a marriage ceremony at a place called Same Day Marriage in San Vicente Boulevard.

Prior to Cleo, Joel was known for dating American actress and model, Olivia Munn. He dated her for two years before they separated in 2014. He was also in a relationship with Jane Timglas, an actress who he met on the set of Snabba Cash. The relationship began in 2009 and ended in 2011.

Cleo lived with her husband in Venice, California, but has her office located in Southern California, until in January 2019, when the duo was confirmed to have divorced. Despite being separated, Cleo and Joel have remained best of friends. They often share pictures of themselves hanging out in different public events. While nothing is yet known about Cleo’s new relationship, the actor seems to have moved on as he is reportedly spotted with a popular model, Kelly Gale, in Los Angeles.
