Ryan Ashley Malarkey: career

So Malarkey moved back to her hometown, took the position of apprentice at a private tattoo studio. Talking about her sudden change in her career, she had said in a 2016 interview,

“I went into fashion, but the whole time I really wanted to tattoo. I thought, "OK, if I don't get into this fashion school, then I'm going to start tattooing. I went to F.I.T. and at the time they only accepted one applicant out of every two hundred. So when I got accepted I was like, "Alright. I'm not going to miss out on this opportunity. Tattooing can wait. I'm going to go to school." 

It was crazy that I got accepted. I graduated and I thought, "If I don't get a job within the next couple of months, I'm going to take it as a sign and I'm going to start tattooing." Then right as I graduated a job just fell into my lap. I did that for almost five years at that job and it was great, but I felt really unfulfilled. I decided I didn't want to let any more time pass and I took the plunge.”
