Rachelle Carroll

Hi! My name is Rachelle. My husband Jon and I are the owners of Ascending Lotus Tattoo. I am a wife and mother of three amazing children. I have been in love with the tattoo industry since I was a child and have striven to develop my artistic ability since . I feel so fortunate to have been able to make a career doing something so incredibly rewarding.  I have worked over 5 years in shops here in Washington, and have had the opportunity to learn from and work with several amazing tattoo artists and piercers over that period of time. In addition to tattooing I do professional body piercing, as well as making jewelry.  My goal in opening Ascending Lotus Tattoo was to provide myself and all others a place to grow artistically and push past limits and boundaries. I wanted to house anyone with the same love for art and self expression while providing a clean,  professional, and inviting environment. I hope to provide an awesome experience for anyone who comes by.  I look forward to this new chapter in my life!

Courtnie Ashley

Hello, I'm Courtnie! I come from the east coast but live here in Vancouver. I'm 26 years old and I have an awesome dog, Roxie, and two cats, Morrigan and Mondo. I see getting pierced as a way to make life a little more bearable by feeling right in your own skin. I've been piercing for over 4.5 years now, and every day I try to challenge myself and try new cool ideas! I see every occurrence as an opportunity to learn, and I'm constantly trying out new techniques, or looking for unique projects to suit my awesome clients. I give a lot of love and care to each individual, and am forever grateful and honored to be given your trust. My goal is to have clients, and myself, leave Ascending Lotus Tattoo happier and more whole than when they arrived.

Olivia Bonebrake

My name is Olivia and I grew up with a love for drawing since I could hold a pencil. At one point (in 1st grade) I was asked why I drew mostly dinosaurs, which I responded with, "The dinosaurs died and want to go live in my head." Since then my love of art has only grown. I knew with certainty that my path in life would be art-oriented no matter what happened. My love for the tattoo industry began when I realized how creative and individual the industry allows an artist to be. My favorite mediums to work with are fine-tipped ball-point pen and watercolor, so I am excited to apply those techniques to my budding career as a tattoo artist. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have found my place at Ascending Lotus Tattoo as a student under Rachelle. I hope to create original and unique works of art while connecting and learning about my clients as well.

Chloe Bizer

Hi! My name is Chloe and I am 20 years old. I have been in love with body art since before I could walk. Always coloring in my mother’s tattoos and sticking my fingers through my father’s stretched lobes. I can remember my mother’s face when I was ten years old and I told her that the one thing I wanted for my birthday was a nostril piercing. Since then, I have have willingly sacrificed so much (jobs, family, friends) in order to express myself freely in this way. I think that says a lot about how much body art and this industry mean to me, and how dedicated I am to my apprenticeship for body piercing at Ascending Lotus. I had fallen in love with the shop and the girls as one of their clients, and I am so grateful to have been accepted as a new part of their team! With Courtnie as my mentor, my main goal is to give others the same feeling that piercing gives me; a new sense of uniqueness, beauty, and growth.
