Along with co-founders & life partners, Suzanne Delaine & Vince Wishart, the Ascending Koi family is the "guts" & the driving force behind this innovative studio! They ask that each person take responsibility for their own energy that they bring into the studio as they promote an atmosphere of positive energy.
More About Us
The team operates as a family and opens their doors, arms and hearts to the local and global communities in an effort to share life experiences, education, conscious contribution, some humor, an openness and desire to honor everyone's path &, of course, some of the most beautiful, thoughtful & rad artwork! They believe tattooing is a creative and artistic process that is as unique and original as each individual who sets foot in their studio.
They strive to present another "facet" of the tattoo culture & to provide accessibility to ANYONE that wants to participate in the process of tattoo!
The Ascending Koi studio promotes acceptance, harmony, creativity, a sharing of philosophies, participation in your process from beginning to end & respect & honoring for all!
Commitment to Fellowship
Suzanne and Vince along with the rest of the Ascending Koi family, encourage the establishment of a mutual relationship between each artist and client that is meaningful and long-term.
Even after a client leaves with a completed and customized tattoo, the invitation of comradery and engagement in intellectually stimulating conversation extends outside the studio walls.
