'High Art Tattoo's' Owner and Founder is Miami born, Brooklyn raised, Ruby Croak. Her distinctive tattoo style evolved symbiotically with her career as a Fine Artist. Trained at both SVA (School of Visual Arts) and MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art and Design). Ruby studied under Big Jaz Tattoo in BK for several years before relocating to LA. Specialising in Watercolor and Abstract tattoos, her Art inspiration is primarily Indigenous Cultures of the Americas. After honing her craft at 'Artistic Element Tattoo' alongside many artists of renown and traveling the world tattooing in major International Conventions, Ruby truly carved out a name for herself in the industry. Her dual passions for the Arts and for Community has inspired her to open 'High Art Tattoo' in the historic district of W. Adams in Los Angeles. It is a safe and welcoming space for all individuals seeking creative means of self expression through Body Art and Piercing while showcasing Fine Art pieces for sale and by commission to Ruby or several of her resident artists.
High Art Co-Owner and Piercer; Jessica Rose Clark specializes in delicate, curated piercings designed to enhance the individual's aesthetic and personality. Her favorite thing about piercings is that they can be subtle as needed or stunningly impactful as desired. Jessica Rose's other passion is her work as an actor portraying characters as diverse as 'Lilith' on HBO's 'True Blood' and 'Hannah' in 'ALIEN: Harvest'. Piercings were originally a consolation prize, with tattoos not necessarily being advisable for actors, until Jessica Rose fell in love with them as a Body Art Form all their own.
