London, England. I will be attending the @londontattooconvention sept 27-29 and will be tattooing after the convention as well. Drop me an email if you want to get tattooed. Nikkohurtado@gmail.com include Size, Placement, and your budget. Excited to be back this year for one of the best tattoo conventions around. Thanks for having me @mikivialetto my boy @crojasart has some openings as well. Get at him.
Something new on the easel. Life’s a trip then you die. Love the life you live. Live your life with love. Enjoy the struggle because the harder the struggle the sweeter the reward! I feel inspired lately. Life always finds a way to give me a story to tell in my visual diary.
Huge shout out to my one and only Apprentice @mathurtado I’ve watched this kid eat so much shit in the beginning and he has clawed his way up from that. I could not ask more from an apprentice. I’ve learned from him as well he’s such a great painter. Some people aren’t cut to tattoo. Tattoo art is not only about technical art or being a great painter/artists it’s about respect. Respecting the traditions in tattooing and respecting the art form. So many painters and artists are trying to get into tattooing to make money. This is the wrong reason to start tattooing. It’s not about fame it’s not about money it’s about love! The love for the art form the respect for its traditions and past. Anyone who can’t cut it being an apprentice and is entitled because they think they are owed something. You are not owed shit. Work hard, eat some shit and grind it out. If you can’t deal with it get the fuck out of this world of tattooing. We are pirates and we live our way on our terms. So with all that. I love all aspects of tattooing. Every style I respect. I love tattoo artists even you grimy fucks! Keep it real and give no fucks! Now go live on your terms! Follow @mathurtado
