It was only just before Christmas of 2018 that years of planning and uncertainty finally came to fruition.
Liz Kantner and Chris Evans purchased the building located at 406 Johnston School Road in Asheville, North Carolina to follow their dream.
Chris, also known as "Westhanded" found success in not only his brand of highly-detailed monochromatic tattoo styling, but his brand of pins & accessories called Pizza Ships.
Liz Kantner first gained traction in the jewelry industry with her blog "Stay Gold." She has since become an advocate for independent designers and makers.
Liz and Chris, after spending years together are now co-owners of Divination, and welcome you to visit them anytime!
Old, but new.
Our shop is located in a cool, quiet area of Asheville, North Carolina - we like to call it the Suburbs of West Asheville. While the building has been around for decades, we take great pride in the cleanliness and organization of our workplace and home away from home. All tattoo artists are up-to-date on necessary certifications and our tattoo shop itself follows all necessary health department guidelines for sterility.
We wanted to create a distinct environment that blends Victorian style and contemporary art with the right technology.
This is more than a business, it's our passion.
Each artist, supplier and company we work with was chosen for a reason. We want to provide the best possible service, develop relationships and earn your trust.
We care deeply about our community and each one of our clients. We offer a safe space for anyone looking to get tattooed or shop our gallery. When you take a chance on us, whether it's a tattoo, an art commission or a piece of jewelry, we will take care of you and make sure you're satisfied. That's our promise.
-Chris & Liz
