I am starting a new blog series in which I showcase UK tattooists that you guys need to check out, if you haven’t already!
In my last post you met Jody Dawber, who tattoos at Jayne Doe in Essex. Today I’d like to introduce you to an awesome tattooer, Ashley Luka. She tattoos at the The Square Tattoo Studio in Solihull, and I had the pleasure of watching her work today.
Ashley is one of those artists that we’d place in a category of ‘neo-traditional’ but it’s clear that her style is so much more than this and completely unique to her work.
Her tattoos are jam-packed with detail, Autumnal colours and distinctive imagery that’s instantly recognisable as her own. Her stunning animal tattoos represent the depth and intricacy of wildlife – staying true to the characteristics of nature yet also inviting us into an un-real fairytale world of sparkle and texture.
Her books are currently closed but don’t forget to follow her on Instagram.
