Our Story

Ancient Art Tattoo was established by Peggi Hurley in 1994. After many years tattooing in Florida, Peggi decided to return to her place of birth to continue the time honored tradition of permanently marking the skin. She has built a reputation for quality, cleanliness and caring which permeates everything that she does.

In 2013 Peggi decided to semi-retire so she sold Ancient Art Tattoo to Matthew Amey, Jason Goldberg, and Martin LaCasse. In 2018, The shop was bought by Tattoo Artist Jonah Latshaw and Musicians Nathan Gray, Joshua Latshaw and Chad Istvan. Peggi has relocated back to Florida and is enjoying her time in the sun!
