Our Talented Artists


Daniel Lashley

Dan is a multimedia artist.  His mediums include graphite, pastels, oil, silkscreen-printing, pen, ink, markers, spray paint, and anything else he can put on a canvas.  Dan has always been artistic, but really began developing his own style a few years ago.  Dan started tattooing at Black Hills Tattoo and Piercing in 2014.  He and his wife Michelle bought Black Hills Tattoo and Piercing from Mike and Barb Trobaugh in 2015.  Dan specializes in his own unique style of tattooing, known locally as “Lashart.”  His approach to custom pieces is like no other tattoo artist you will every meet. 



Andy was born and raised in Rapid City, SD. As a young adult, Andy gained a foundation in conceptual art during her two years at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She completed her B.A. in Art at Black Hills State University in 2017 before becoming a piercer and tattoo apprentice at Black Hills Tattoo & Piercing. Andy likes to channel her perfectionism into her work as a piercer and tattoo artist to provide her clients with the best possible result. Andy describes her personal aesthetic as "aggressively feminine." When she's not at work, she spends her time with her husband, Heywood, and their two miniature humans.
