Luke Kelly

The Grey Ash

Charlotte, NC

Luke has been tattooing since October 2019, working to develop a style of illustrative fineline blackwork. Thin intricate linework and dynamic dotwork are the core of Luke’s style. He derives most of his inspiration from traditional tattoo imagery and nature. His favorite subjects to tattoo are anything involving anime, gaming, manga, neo-traditional portraiture, the occult, and gothic imagery. Other growing facets of his art include a love for apparel design and wood burning. Luke puts the utmost importance on creating a safe and accepting space for all clients, free of hate or discrimination. 

Outside of work, Luke enjoys a quiet life with his partner, Derek, and their dog, Rasputin. Most of their time is spent nursing a growing video game collection, watching anime, binging horror movies, hiking, and traveling the country.
