Ashley 'ShowOff' V.
Tattooing was something I never intended on doing. The story goes as follows: did my first tat, knocked it out the park, got pretty busy over night, moved shops, oh yeah, being on Spike Tv’s Ink Master happens, and now I am where I am today: owning my own shop!
My style is untouchable, my designs are unrepeatable, and I'm just a savage when it comes to my craft. My best hours tattooing is spent working with black and gray realism and color fusion. I vary from custom freehand lettering, to dot work, mandalas, sacred geometry and realism overall.
I have been tattooing for 8 years. I come from a graffiti background. I eventually started putting my art work on permanent canvas. My style is different line weights with soft shading. I also enjoy doing lettering whether it's my style or any style to your liking. Geometric, black and grey, color, dot work, lettering, traditional, neo traditional.
“I just got tattooed by Ashley and she was amazing! She talked me through my first tattoo and really made the experience great. I would highly recommend anyone to come to this shop. The decor is super dope and by far the best shop I’ve seen. As soon as I saw this shop I was instantly drawn in, and I’m glad I was. Thank you Ashley.”
