I am Haylo~
I have always been drawn to the bohemian textures of life, styled by the virtues of Radical Authenticity! Tattooing is this magical and meditative integration of myself as an Artist and a Unique Culture of Kindred Spirits who seek to share this kind of Special Connection and Practice in Permanence.
With over 20 years experience as a professional in the Transpersonal Art of Tattooing, I continue to stretch myself and have taken on mentoring two talented Visual Artists as apprentices as well as developing the future of Tattoo Training the Haylo way.
Haylo Healing Arts Lounge opened her doors at the very beginning of 2015 with my dream to invite people into a kick-ass loving environment that honors comfort and compassion through the pain of this Healing and Revealing Art~
I get great joy in seeing how this communal practice over the years here in Charlotte has helped to create and continues to perpetuate something like unto a Vision Quest of intentional Self-Discovery and Actualization through this particular kind of effort in Self-Expression. This spiritual, mental and physical endeavor is a vital part of my lifelong pursuit of ever knowing more clearly who I am and what I stand for.
My specialty is realistic black and grey although I do have fun with color and I will always pay attention to connection and flow across the body. I love tattooing fine line detail and enjoy incorporating geometric as well as abstract elements in my Art. I know how to make things visually go together no matter what they are and happily do a lot of freehand work by creating directly on the body.
