About The crew
My name is Rebecca Schuppert I am the owner of Pure Steam Tattoo. I love the complex nature of this art form and I love providing quality, custom tattoos for all of my clients. I started my tattooing journey as an apprentice at Body Inks Tattoo which was located in Spartanburg, SC. In 2009 I graduated from my apprenticeship and started to work at Skin Grafix Tattoo in Easley where I was quickly promoted to shop manager. After working for approximately four years in South Carolina, I was looking to establish a special tattoo shop and to find a special city to call home and I found it in Asheville, NC. I am sure that you will love the unique setup of Pure Steam Tattoo which is a steampunk themed shop.
J started his piercing apprenticeship in January of 2008, right after he turned 18. He has been piercing ever since and has loved every minute of it. He has worked in many shops in a few different areas of the U.S. and he always pushes himself to be the best that he can. J offers professional piercing in a friendly, clean, and relaxing environment. He also specializes in every type of piercing from simple ear piercings to body suspension and everything in between. He only uses implant grade, internally threaded jewelry, so that he can be sure his clients are getting the best piercing possible.
Andrew Thorne has been tattooing since 2009 he apprenticed at Three Sided Tattoo. He enjoys doing bright colorful and bold tattoos that really stand the test of time.
Pure Steam Tattoo is located at 172 S. Liberty Street in beautiful Asheville, North Carolina.
