TATTOO ARTIST + ENERGY WORK
Emily had two year apprenticeship in TX in 2007 at a tattoo shop that she co-owned. Seeking trees, mountains and a region abundant in wild food, she moved to Asheville, NC in 2010. Emily is also a graduate of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition and is a Certified Integrative Health Coach. The Institute for Integrative Nutrition focuses on the relation between one’s health and one’s relationship with spirituality, career, physical activity & relationships.
Emily has a strong love of Traditional Americana tattooing, but is fine tuning what she refers to as Intentional Tattooing. After many years of professional tattooing, she has realized that there is a need for what can only be described as Tattoo Therapy. Human beings seek out the experience of being tattooed for many reasons, often times including healing or growth. Emily holds space for her clients to heal, grow, and have their own experience during the process while making them as comfortable as possible.
One of the best shops in town. Art quality and attention to detail is top notch. Couldn't be happier with my permanent body art. I would recommend this shop to anyone looking for very high quality black and white work. Also the customer experience was excellent.

Zen ink is so wonderful. All of the artists are extremely talented at what they do, easy to book with and super professional. The environment is relaxing and they play good music. I highly recommend this shop!
