Early Life, Family and Education
Ryan Ashley Malarkey was born on April 29, 1987, in northeast Pennsylvania. Nothing is known about her before her tertiary education.
From when she was a little girl, Ashley had always been in love with art. Years later she opted to pursue this dream in the world of fashion design.
Ryan Ashley enrolled into the Fashion Institute of Technology to study fashion design. She graduated in 2007, winning the Critic’s Choice award of her class.
After graduation, she was hired by a private label clothing company where she worked as an artist and fashion designer until sometime in 2011.
The ink goddess has certainly done some elaborated ink works on many of her customers who are no doubt, eternally grateful, and probably refer more people to her. However, the single biggest testament to her genius-level artistry is herself.
Ashley’s body is covered in her works. Among these tattoos, she also managed to incorporate many elements that are as diverse as they are beautiful.
However, there are three elements that repeat themselves constantly throughout her body’s canvas: animals, traditional/religious symbols, and jewelry.
Ryan had decided to continue her pursuit of art a little differently – as a tattoo artist. She moved back to her home State of Pennsylvania and took up an apprenticeship at a private tattoo studio, where she learned the ropes of the business and started working on her unique design style. She spent a year there.
Ashley has since then developed an entrepreneurial side to her tattooing talent. She owns her own private and appointment only tattoo studio in the city of Kingston, Pennsylvania.
Ryan also co-owns an e-commerce platform where she sells some oddities merch items, from glass eyes and skulls to bath bombs, and tarot cards.
Ashley took part in the 8th installment of the Ink Masters tattoo artist competition in 2016 and came out tops. This made her the first female to win the competition since its inception.
The next year, Ryan Ashley starred on Ink Masters: Angels, which was a spin-off of the original she had won in 2016. In the show, she toured the country with Gia Rose, Kelly Doty, and Nikki Simpson, all of whom were contestants with Ashley on Ink Masters.
On this spin-off show, Ryan and her former competitors traveled around the country and held competitions in different cities for upcoming and local tattoo artists pitting them against each other. It was designed such that the winner of the competition would get to face off with either Ashley or one of her friends.
The Ink Masters: Angels also doubled as an avenue to recruit contestants for the subsequent season of the original Ink Masters competition. She continued her role as host of the spin-off show with her return to it for its second season in March 2018.
Ryan Ashley has also been on the cover of various body art publications like for the 2015 June/July issues of Inked Magazine and Freshly Inked.
A fascinating lady who has been working as a tattoo artist has $2 million from her competition. By some sources, it is said that it was directly published by her workplace.
But her exact net worth is not revealed yet. However, her fiance also is a prominent artist who also owns a huge amount of net worth but, it is under review.
It looks like they want to keep their lives private. Indeed, they are having a luxurious and happy life.
