Ainslie was always the kid in school who spent time drawing instead of taking notes. They weren’t just random doodles, though; it was all part of what would become a 500-page comic book. This obsessive focus is now put into every tattoo he does.
After earning an art degree from Virginia Commonwealth University, Ainslie began tattooing in 2004, and he founded Vintage Karma in 2007. The award-winning artist is also featured in the book “Bodies of Subversion” by Margot Mifflin.
