“A man who works with his hands is a laborer; a man who works with his hands and his brain is a craftsman; but a man who works with his hands and his brain and his heart is an artist.”
― Louis Nizer

Face Small

My name is Nick ‘the Tailor’. I studied design at Penn State University and now work as a tattoo artist, freelance illustrator, and designer in Philadelphia. My style has a basis in traditional western tattooing (old school), but over time has developed to include the colors and details that are missing in many traditional designs. Rather than simply using shadows to create depth, I incorporate color theory and design principles into every piece I create.

I’ve been creating digital content and illustration for twelve years and have worked with NBC, Mattel, Totes/Isotoner, Quattro Press, Sourpuss Clothing Co., and Darkside UK clothing. As a freelance illustrator, I can work with traditional mediums or digitally.
