Anonymous asked:Why do you put an oh in front of your name?

It was my aim screen name in college, and it just stuck.

vincentvangothehellaway asked:Can you tell us a little bit about how you first got into tattooing? What made you want to start? How'd you land your apprenticeship?

I think I was about 20 when I started getting tattooed pretty frequently… And I have been really into visual arts since I was young, so I just kind of naturally started drawing tattoo style stuff.
Pretty soon, I was sketching stuff for friends to take in as ideas. My artist saw all of this, and had also seen my portfolio of artwork from highschool/college, and eventually decided I was worth investing time and effort into.
I moved to the city he lived in, and put all of my effort into taking in everything he was offering for about a year and a half or two. My apprenticeship was tough and trying, but 100% worth it :)

audiemurphy1 asked:I remember when I thought 40 was old, it was about the same time I thought laserdiscs were the format of the future and I could never love anyone as much as I loved Alyssa Milano... lol! Your talent speaks for itself. In a youth obsessed culture nobody stops to ask how people get the experience to become master of their craft... It is called practice & time. That is why the older you get the sexier, smarter, confident, happier, you become. I look forward to, and delight in, your tumblr!

I agree with all of this, completely! You said it so well.
Except I’m actually 31. I really don’t find my age to be an issue.

Anonymous asked:Hi Ashley! Since you're doing walk ups at the convention does that mean if someone chooses a design that someone else can choose the same one right after?

Hi! I think every tattooer probably deals with this differently.. But usually if I’m doing tattoos from line-drawing designs (which I will be doing at the convention) I only do the tattoo once… If I were to paint an actual flash sheet, the designs would be reused.
If there happens to be an exception, I would note that. And sometimes I will redraw a design slightly different, and do that as well.

I love seeing fellow tattoo artists stick up for one another, and you two have always been my favorite tattoo artists. He's a great tattoo artist, and YOU continue to dominate the field, girl or not. Btw, your dog looks so fluffy.

Arrow is the fluffiest!
And Alex is one of my favorite buds, and an amazing tattooer, for sure.
Thank you!
