ASHLEY JOHN CARTER

Ashley draws creative inspiration from nature, spirituality, and consciousness expansion. Being a student of life, he is fascinated by the symmetry expressed in nature, and weaves these patterns into his tattoos. Ashley’s tattooing is rooted in the Thai hand tap technique, Sak Yant- which he learned in Thailand and practiced in the years prior to transitioning to modern tattoo machines. Ashley has a strong passion for the sacred tradition of tattooing from around the world, and strives to curate an intentional, transformational experience for his clients.
