I am Haylo~
I have always been drawn to the bohemian textures of life, styled by the virtues of Freedom, Beauty, Truth, Peace, Love and Rock’n’Roll! Tattooing is this magical and even medetative integration of myself as an Artist and a unique culture of Kindred Spirits who seek to share this kind of special Connection and practice in Permanence.
2021 marks my 20th year as a professional in the Transpersonal Art of Tattooing! Haylo Healing Arts Lounge opened her doors at the very beginning of 2015 with my dream to invite people into a kick-ass loving environment that honors comfort and compassion through the pain of this Healing and Revealing Art~
I get great joy in seeing how this communal practice over the years here in Charlotte has helped to create and continues to perpetuate something like unto a Vision Quest of intentional Self-Discovery and Actualization through this particular kind of effort for Self-Expression. This spiritual, mental and physical endeavor is a vital part of my lifelong pursuit of ever knowing more clearly who I am and what I stand for.
- My specialty is realistic black and grey although I do have fun with color and I will always pay attention to connection and flow across the body. I love tattooing fine line detail and enjoy incorporating geometric as well as abstract elements in my Art. I know how to make things visually go together no matter what they are and happily do a lot of freehand work by creating directly on the body.
What an amazing place to get a tattoo or shop for art or shop for vintage clothing. The tattoo I got Mother’s Day weekend was small but perfect and healed faster than any of my tattoos ever. It was my first with Hayley but won’t be my last even though I live far away. Love this shop and all of the people connected with it.
Great atmosphere and very cool experience. Hayley is an old high school friend and I couldn’t have picked a better person to compete my sleeve.
I’ve always had a wonderful experience with Hayley. She is an amazing artist who made my vision a reality.
