Amy Ruth was born & raised in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Amy graduated from the Greater Johnstown Career & Technology center (vo-tech) with numerous awards, including "commercial art senior of the year" and an advertising & design certificate. After completing high school, Amy attended The Art Institute of Pittsburgh online division, pursuing advertising as her main course of study and later transferring to graphic design. Due to the busy lifestyle of motherhood, Amy gave up her dream to focus on her family. While once being married to a tattoo artist, Amy was able to learn the basics of tattooing and was eager to learn more. It wasn't until she stepped foot into Gypsy skull tattoo, where she was given the opportunity of a lifetime!
Still fairly new to the industry, Amy has adapted and gained an abundance of knowledge while being in the shop part time. She has quickly obtained a dedicated clientele that continues to grow. Amy is not only known for her upbeat, bubbly personality but her kindness and determination to make her clients leave with a smile! She is very attentive to her client's ideas & goals, as well as being detail oriented. You can find Amy doing everything, from black & gray to color tattoos, and even cosmetic tattooing. While unsure of her preferred style, she finally found her niche, botanical tattoos. Her new found love was self taught and quickly gained attention and admiration. So if you're looking for realistic floral designs, Amy is your woman!
