Tattoo and photography combined to make permanent Art

Episode 4 Permanent Art, getting under your skin, that’s right we have Ashly Hutchins Tattoo Artist extraordinary.

 

 

A friendship that started in 2002 approx 150 years ago, yes we are public education graduates. When I first knew Ashly she was a Photography Student at VCU and had no tattoos, then she got her first and when I moved back to the area in 2013 she became my only tattoo artist. Currently working at River City Tattoo Company.

We discuss how photography and tattooing have similarities in terms of using the compositional eye and creating a viewpoint. We also talk about various photographic sessions especially the long lost and forgotten cigarette through a lip ring pictures.

Learning how to draw for tattoos is similar but more intense than drawing for photographic compositions.

The big difference is mechanical tools, where tattoo machines have similarities with digital cameras but the  final output is on live flesh versus paper or digital codes.

Ashly is given permission to swear and does so sparingly and drinks almond milk from the carton, yes she is hard core like that kids.

When this podcast a airs she will be on tour doing merch sales US Bastards on tour with GWAR.

We discuss a healthy balance with the tattoo world and other art projects that she is into.

Connect up with her on instagram at @ghostlife and River City Tattoo Co website.

We enter the Satanic Seven questions and her standout performance she cored a 7 out of 7 questions with a few bonus points that helped her score  a perfect score.
