Green is the new black

Nickhole is a tattoo artist by trade,

however, her art also takes form in many other ways, as well.

Please enjoy! For Nickhole, creating art is the best

path and she doesn't mind which way it happens, as long as it is happening.

As a professional tattoo artist, Nickhole has been very pleased to welcome clients to WATERPROOF BLACK house to be tattooed in her custom, all-private tattoo studio.

Nickhole Arcade about her tattooing style

In her own words, Nickhole's style is somewhat of a "Frankenstein's monster" that includes many styles, like crisp black pen lines, sketchy pencil lines, and splattered paint.
