Billy is an accomplished artist that has over 16 years of tattoo expertise under his belt. His love and dedication to the art and mastery of tattooing has lead him to open his second shop, Heron Mark, in Asheville, NC. Billy has a very extensive breath of work but is best know for his lush painterly tattoos that drip with color and texture.


In his time off Billy really enjoys off mountain biking, traveling and getting involved in his community. Being adventurous, charitable and socially conscious is a huge part of his business mantra and who he is as a person. These traits show through into his work and you really couldn't meet a more compassionate and talented fella.

Anthony is a classically trained professional painter and draftsman who has been creating art since he could hold a pencil. With a deep love of the old masters from Da Vinci to Rembrandt to Bouguereau, he brings his subjects to life in illustration and classical oil painting.


Born in Wappingers Falls, New York, he studied illustration at Ringling College of Art & Design and classical technique in Florence, Italy. Anthony also enjoys teaching group figure drawing classes and individuals. When he's not making art, you can find him around town in Asheville, North Carolina, enjoying craft coffee, at the farmers' market, or at home reading books and listening to records.

Chris Sheehan is an artist, author and professional tattooer of 15 years. He sees tattooing as a spiritual technology for personal evolution and creates transformational tattoos to inspire his clients to connect with their infinite nature.

“A transformational tattoo has the capacity to connect you with your infinite nature through the universal language of sacred geometry which is intrinsically attractive because it alters our consciousness when we look at it.”

Chris specializes in black and grey/ dot work tattooing integrating mandalas, sacred geometry and ornamental nature inspired elements into his work.
