The Intention Behind Ace of Wands Tattoo Studio
To hold space to facilitate inspiration, expansion, transformation and healing through the use of intention, divine and interpersonal connection, art and tattooing
Hello! My name is Amanda Marie. I am a Tattoo Artist and the owner of Ace of Wands: Intimate Tattoo Studio in Los Angeles, California. I am also an Artist that works with mixed media creating paintings, drawings, and sculptures. The act of creating is what feeds my soul, and I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I have studied fine art, fashion and costume design, and have always had a love for tattoo culture.
I have been tattooing for almost ten years and tattoo people from all walks of life; which is one of my favorite parts of being a tattoo artist. Even though people come to me from all different backgrounds and experiences, I have noticed common threads in why and when people choose to get tattooed. It is common to get tattooed when starting on a new path in life or when letting go of an old one, when honoring a part of yourself or someone else, as a way to process an event or experience, as a method to heal and or to empower. I opened Ace of Wands because I felt the need for a space that honors the spiritual and sacred parts of the practice of tattooing and the transformation of being tattooed. A space where the experience is just as important as the quality of the art being created and where people could truly feel comfortable being vulnerable, and the door to deep and meaningful conversation could be opened or the space to be quiet and peaceful could be held. To me the experience is a really important part of receiving a tattoo. You will carry not only the art with you, but you will also carry the memory of the experience you had receiving the art, the energy of the space you received it in as well as the energy of the artist applying it. One of the most important considerations in my studio is the energy of the space. It should feel inviting and positive. My goal is for every person who gets tattooed at Ace of Wands to walk out feeling empowered and positively energized stepping onto the path to the rest of their life’s journey.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and for your interest in my work! I am grateful for all of you.
