She was just pipped to the post by Ryan Ashley Malarkey for the win of Ink Master, but Kelly Doty has been on many people’s “dream tattooist” list for many years (especially mine – ed)! Her new school style, with a hint of darkness, has a unique spooky “pop surrealist” fell often featuring big eyed girls and bobble-headed animals. Her tattoo studio, Helheim Gallery, can be found in Salem, Massachusetts.

Even better news for fans of Kelly is that Ink Master Angels TV show – featuring Kelly Doty, Ryan Ashley Malarkey, Nikki Simpson and Gia Rose – is now out for all to enjoy more of Doty’s terrible jokes!

Kelly often travels as an tattoo artist, let’s home we can get her to Australia/New Zealand soon!
