So I meet this awesome guy yesterday in my last day in California, I decided to stop by the shop just to look around and boom, he was there. Definitely my inspiration has a tattoo artist and now like a person. Thank you so much homie @nikkohurtado 🙏🏻🔥 so much talent in this humble guy.
Really great to see a piece of printed pencil artwork that I made for @nikkohurtado hanging on his studio wall while he was tattooing Dwayne Johnson @therock a few months ago. My wife and I recently met Nikko and other great artists at the London Tattoo Convention, what a great show and so many talented artists to watch tattooing. I was always amazed at Nikko’s incredible style of tattoo work and actually getting to meet him in London was pretty dam cool. In September 2018 I’ll be showing Nikko’s original drawing and other typography artworks that I have made at a gallery show in Exeter, Devon The original sketch for Nikko I will then be taking to him in 2019 when I’ll be teaching Nikko and other tattooists at his studio @blackanchorworldwide how to water gild and letter ornate reverse Victorian glass signs. A few shots of his drawing are attached to this post. #tattoo#tattooartist#tattooing#nikkohurtado#art#la#therock#dwaynejohnson#pencildrawing#sketch#ink#handcrafts#worldclass#instatattoo
I want to say Thank you to the hard work put in by Aaron Della Vedova, Franco and his crew at Bishop Rotary, Nikko Hurtado, the crew at Sullen, Virtual Tattoo Workshop, and anyone else that was involved with Aarons live tattoo workshop. It was good to see such a great tattoo artist to take time out of his day and walk you thru his process to do an bad ass tattoo. It was very informative and I really appreciate all the info that you put out their. It was cool to have other bad ass tattoo artist helping answer questions and give there opinions too. I look forward to more seminars from virtual tattoo workshop. Im also very thankful to have won this Magi tattoo machine created by Franco and Nikko. Its # 181/1000 and gold plated. Talk about a stylish looking machine. Cant wait to put some pigment in the skin with this bad boy. Once again i cant say thanks enough.
