I have always had a passion for art, architecture, design. My love for creating things and working with my hands is deeply rooted. In 2011, I was offered the opportunity to learn to tattoo. I eagerly accepted and never looked back. I enjoy tattooing in black and gray as well as color. Blackwork with crisp lines and different textures is a favorite. I particularly love tattooing plants, animals, occult and magic symbols, and geometric designs. Outside of the studio, I enjoy painting, wood burning, and sewing, as well as, hiking, riding bikes, and spending time with my family.

Life & Work with Meghan Alayne

My love for tattooing began in my teens and I knew that I wanted to pursue tattooing, as a career, from a young age. Art and drawing has always been a passion of mine. I have been tattooing since 2015. Originally from Florida, I moved to North Carolina in 2017 and have been at Ascension Tattoo since that time. My favorite style to tattoo is new school, cartoons, anime, and neo traditional. When I’m not tattooing or making other art, I enjoy video games, watching anime and hanging out with my family and friends.


My desire to create art and environments to encourage artistic individuality has grown and flourished through nomadic living and a thirst to learn more. For 6 years I studied 3D sculpture and followed that passion in 2012 to the pottery capitol of the country: North Carolina. Studio employment and instructing both groups and private classes continued that evolution of my artistic career and in 2017 I began working for Ascension. Through my work I combine my passion for art and desire to establish connections with clients to make their dreams a living piece of art to carry with them every day. In my personal life I enjoy creating larger scale installation art, camping, gardening, and loving my animal babies.

My love for art started at a young age, and was my go-to hobby for expression, relaxation, and entertainment. My love for tattoos came in my teens, and when I was an adult, I felt the determination and courage to bring my hobby and work together. I began working at Ascension in 2020, and was given the opportunity and space to learn and grow as a tattoo artist. As I continue forward, I strive to work well with each client to create a tattoo we both love! Aside from work, I’m always ready to chat about books, comics, video games, anime, TTRPGs, and whatever else becomes my hyper-fixation of the week. 

I have been a lover of art all of my life. I grew up in tattoo shops with my parents and learned to draw by going through my dad’s tattoo books with him. My passion came about in high school when I learned realism. I have been working hard since then to fine-tune those skills in order to bring my talents to life in the form of tattooing. I wish to expand my knowledge of realism and I am open to new opportunities to better myself in that field. My hobbies include but are not limited to…drawing, gaming, watching horror movies, and spending time with my pets.
