Ray’s Bio (@rayhawse)

Ray Hawse is a native of the DC area who has been tattooing since 1998. His career has taken him around the country and around the world traveling abroad to places such as Korea, Jamaica, Thailand, China, and Brazil. All of these have influenced his tattooing style and appreciation for portraits, realism, and Asian art. His artistic abilities have been recognized at various tattoo conventions across the nation, on social media, and in books and magazines.

Ray has now returned to DC to be a part of the Fatty’s crew to build upon his talent and passion as a tattoo artist and to be part of a team of tattooists who share the same level of motivation, appreciation for art, and drive towards the opportunity to develop their skills.

Ray works out of Fatty’s Tattoos & Piercings at our H St NE location Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays, and Mondays and may be contacted directly via email:
