Ashley "Show Off" Velazquez
New Haven, CT
Artist, Forever Custom Tattoos
5 years' experience
With the nickname "Show Off," Ashley Velazquez lives for the spot light. She learned quickly from the other artists around her and taught herself when no one would apprentice her. A former art major in college, she began drawing tattoos before she even was a tattoo artist. Now, five years later she is the most requested artist at the shop she works at. Hungry for this opportunity, Velazquez feels competing on "Ink Master" is validation to her doubting father that she has made the right career choice.
