Ashley Guerra is a Latinx illustrator based in Silver Spring, Maryland and is a tattoo artist. She is currently working at Fatty’s Tattoo Shop in Silver Spring,Maryland.
Her personal work is a Halloween twist on the old school American Traditional style of tattoos. It expresses bold, black linework alongside with a stipple shading technique that allows gradients of light and shadows. She isn’t afraid to be bold with color. Her artwork emphasizes ideas inspired by Vanitas, a 17th century art form that is symbolic on the transience of life and the certainty of death. All of her designs are available in ready-to-tattoo flash sheets drawn within the tattoo studio and while clients commission her through social media. She also prioritizes her clients’ vision that are outside the comfortability of a tattoo machine as she has experiences with acrylic paint, chalk paint, ceramics, and printmaking.
