Custom Tattooing

With Heart. Adam has honed his craft as a Tattoo Artist and Illustrator for over 20 years. Finding a deep love for the art that stands the test of time. He is inspired by nature, history, and what elevates art into the realm of permanence.

howdy, I'm glad you're here

There are many artist out there to choose from. I’m glad you found your way here. I’m Adam Guy Hays, a big hearted native Texan Tattoo Artist and Illustrator. Living, working and loving in the mountains of Asheville, NC. I have the honor to have been tattooing since 2002. Tattoo art, like all art, is subjective. I hope within these pages, you find something that speaks to you, or spurs the inspiration to inquire about a project. 


I specialize in Freehand Tattooing

This process allows me to cater each design to seamlessly flow with the body – this is not achievable with any other approach. Prior to tattooing, I draw your custom design directly onto the skin with markers. No stenciling is involved. This technique guarantees originality and gives us freedom to explore design aspects and compositions that truly elevate tattooing into body art.
