Wade Elder Tattooer

Wade Elder

In '97 I served a brief apprenticeship at Ink Pot Tattoos under Jim Roosseau. Jim was a 80's era tattooer and biker that looked the part. I scrubbed toilets and mopped floors while Jim taught me what he knew.

I met California Ralph in late '99. Ralph offered me a job at his shop and I jumped at the chance. It was a gift to be able to learn from a true tattooer. Ralph was brought up on the Pike and that energy was alive in him. I went through sort-of a second apprenticeship with Ralph. He taught me the trade of tattooing and refined my technique. I prefer traditional, americana tattooing but I'm happy to tattoo whatever on whoever. Thanks to Jim and California Ralph.

Steve Owings

In march of 1994 I moved to Asheville,NC. to work with Ralph at his newly opened "California Emporium of Tattoos" where I worked for Ralph until his passing in march 2011.

I credit my mentors Ralph, Charlie Green and Jeff Cohen for molding me into the tattooer I am today. I consider myself a "street shop" tattooer doing a mix of walk in and custom appointment tattooing. My favorite style of tattoo and painting is traditional americana and japanese influenced imagery.

I was Raised in Chapel Hill. Luckily, I found California Ralph and became his last apprentice in 2009. I've worked here since and enjoy doing all styles of tattooing, especially black and grey work. I'm extremely grateful to be at this shop, in this line of work. Thanks California Ralph and the crew!

Tony Eterno Tattooer

Tony Eterno

I began tattooing in 1997. I am grateful for the experience I have earned while tattooing in various shops throughout the states but I like to call Asheville and Victory Blvd. Tattoo home. For me tattooing is an art that has survived on the fringes of popular culture. I am drawn to traditional american tattoo imagery. You can reach me at the shop tuesday through saturday.

I’m an NC native, living in Asheville since age 10.  I like making people happy with tattoos built to last.  Whether that means cover-ups, bold outlines and bright color, smooth black and grey, watercolor, fine line geometric, or lettering... come down and show me what you want!

    Lance did an amazing job on my geometric butterfly. It’s perfectly symmetrical and he made sure to add ink to spots that were thinner than the rest of the line. I’m from out of town and I would definitely make the 3 hour trip to go back!!

    Dropped by for a walk-in for a partial cover up and luckily Lantz had time for me. Really appreciate that he was laid-back, friendly, and incredibly careful to be sure I got exactly what I wanted. This was my second trip to Victory Blvd Tattoo and I’ll definitely be back!
