The Hinesville Area Arts Council will host an art exhibit, "Freestyle" featuring work by area tattoo artists during April.
Ray Carter of Carter Ink, Karma Tattoos and White Bluff Tattoo Co. will be featured. Council board member Bruce Muncher curated the collection.
The exhibit highlights the talents of area tattoo artists. Carter’s specialty is realism and design, while others are skilled in various other types. The exhibit will open with a free reception at the Gallery, 102 Commerce St. in downtown Hinesville from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday. The Gallery is open from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Monday-Friday
Carter said he has been tattooing since 2007. He opened his first studio in Richmond Hill in 2009 and approached the Hinesville City Council in 2011 to get zoning laws changed to allow parlors in Hinesville. Carter Ink and Karma Tattoos and Piercings were subsequently opened. He also recently opened the White Bluff Tattoo in Savannah.
"I specialize in realism and design work and employ a large staff who are skilled in many various styles," Carter said.
