On Saturday May 16th, 2020 tattoo artists Ryan Ashley and Arlo DiCristina welcomed a healthy baby boy into the world. Atheus DiCristina is the name of the couple's first child, who arrived several weeks earlier than initially expected.

Ryan Ashley announced her pregnancy to the world on the cover of "Inked" in a stunning photoshoot inspired by Demi Moore's 1991 "Vanity Fair" cover. In the spread, Ryan Ashley talked about her pregnancy in her own words, sharing the ups and downs of the experience.

"The past few months—since all five of those pregnancy tests turned out to be accurate—have been a psychological struggle, a mental battle and a physical test of both perseverance and self worth," Ryan Ashley shares. "Pregnancy has taught me that the value I placed on so many things was materialistic, momentary and surface level, therefore, fragile. It’s been a brutal awakening learning what’s most important, but it has been a gift from the universe, for the hardest lessons are the most important to learn."

Atheus DiCristina was born at St Mary's Medical Center in Grand Junction, Colorado—close by to Elysium Studios, where both Ryan Ashley and Arlo tattoo. Ryan Ashley and Arlo DiCristina first connected at a Club Tattoo event in Las Vegas, which also featured appearances by Nikko Hurtado and Roman Abrego. The pair went on to start dating and announced that they were an item on the Januaury 2019 cover of "Inked." Not long after announcing they were together, Ashley moved to Colorado, the pair got married and along came Atheus.
