Make sure to include a written description of what you're thinking or a visual reference if there is one, a rough estimate of size in inches, and the location of where you want the tattoo (a photo is best). Do not DM on social media, text 937-530-0563 or email [email protected]

repost via @instarepost20 from @nikkiforteart This memory popped up on Facebook: 11/16/2015 was my first day as a "professional" tattoo artist, and this was my first piece. During my apprenticeship I had so many life changes and struggles that I thought were surely signs I'd fail...horribly. Somehow, it worked out. 6 years later and I'm in a place I never thought I'd get to.

Safe and Stable.

Might not sound like much but considering my previous circumstances I equate feeling safe and stable to a huge success. Looking forward to what's next. #growth #transformation #tattoos #art #startedfromthebottom #experience #recovery #traumahealing

repost via @instarepost20 from @nikkiforteart Fun retro hair dryer, bobby pins and roman numeral (I apologize, it's not a great video). It was fun trying a new art style with that hair dryer.
