Body Piercer/APP Certified
Sailor Cher is a tattooed, pierced, stiletto-heeled, Harley-riding old broad who could probably kick your ass…but she won’t. She’s been in the industry for more than a decade, and continues to bring her personal touch to everything she does.
A veteran of the U.S. Navy, Sailor Cher served proudly as a journalist and photojournalist with tours at Pacific Stars and Stripes in the later years of the Vietnam Conflict, the recruiting command in Denver, and as a company commander at RTC Orlando, pushing recruits through boot camp. But she didn’t get her first tattoo until after her discharge. She definitely has made up for lost time!
Sailor Cher believes one’s body is their temple. And just like the brick-and-mortar buildings that religions build in celebration of their beliefs, one’s body houses the soul and reflects one’s thoughts, passions, hopes, dreams – and sense of humor. To leave it unadorned, according to her, borders on sacrilege.
The mother of five daughters and grandmother to nine, Sailor Cher likes dressing like a diva and making boys cry.

Award winning Tattoo Artist
Ash has been tattooing since 2013 and apprenticed under Sam Sowards at Body Fantasies in Pomeroy, Ohio. She is a self-taught artist, born with natural creative ability. She owes her high school art instructor, Susan Parrish, a great deal of gratitude and credit for pushing her skills with different mediums and techniques, which have advanced her in her career.
Ash specializes in black and grey, watercolor, pointillism, geometric, abstract, trash polka, neo-traditional, traditional, realism and surrealism. Tattooing, and the artistry of tattoos have always been an interest and passion of hers since childhood. Seeing people with all these bright colors and beautiful designs walking around always captured her attention. Art has always been a release for Ash, mentally and emotionally, creating art is her escape from daily struggles of life.
Her favorite most popular question asked is... "what do your tattoos mean?" The majority of peoples artwork tells a story; where, for others, its simply for the love of the art of tattooing. To her, tattooing is therapy, whether she is behind the needle or in front of it. In a way, tattoos help people, they help them handle difficult situations, honor loved ones, commemorate achievements in life, hide painful scars, and most importantly, help love the skin they are in.
Even though this was not her first career of choice, she can honestly say that she has grown to love it. There is nothing more gratifying in this industry than sitting down one-on-one with a client, listening to their story and transforming their thought and emotions into beautiful words of art that they will forever carry with them. Tattooing for me, isn't just about the art, but about everything that goes into creating that one special piece that means the world to that client.
Cali, is the second oldest grandchild to Sailor Cher but newest edition to the studio.
Coming up on her 5th year in the studio, “front desk” doesn't cover Cali’s awesomeness, Counter intelligence is more appropriate for her position.

Growing up in the tattoo industry has exposed her to a wide range of knowledge that she utilizes effortlessly. At 9 years old she began attending tattoo conventions with her family.
