Today is my birthday and i am excited to share one of my work which means to me a lot. I was approached by @therocsworld to create the art for the cover of his book 📖 “Inner Demons: Blazing A Path To Happiness” :: Though this book is a true story about his life, Roc wanted the cover to capture a sense of imagination and freedom that can only exist through artistic expression — he wanted to create a space for you to see yourself in his story. :: This is the final product, I think we nailed it. What do you think? The book can be found at Amazon and Barnes & Noble or click the link in @therocsworld bio Amazon: http://bit.ly/InnerDemonsAZ http://bit.ly/InnerDemonsAZ Barnes &Noble: http://bit.ly/InnerDemonsBN
Here are some still shots of my clients arm. Swipe to check it out. Original art of the women’s faces is by @viveros_brand and tattooed by me. The rest is designed by me. Mostly healed except the red roses. One was added the other was touched up. @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored @fusion_ink @bishoprotary
Took me a little longer than normal but I stopped at the drawing and came back an hour or more later. Really enjoy this small water color sketch book. 5x7 gouache on water color paper. Using synthetic @trekell_art_supplies brushes.
My daughter turns 12 today. Happy Birthday!!!!🎉🎁🎂 Dad loves you. I think it’s time to do a new painting of you. “Bee yourself” my little queen. Oil on board 18x24 she was about 7/8 years old when I painted this. I love you Lucy.
I bet you don’t love your dog enough to get them on your arm forever. Love making tattoos for my clients when they explain how much they love their pet. Guess his name? I’ll give you a hint it starts with a C. Go!
This started as a half sleeve I did of @viveros_brand art. My client decided she wanted another painting replicated and for me to add and do what I think would look best. So I designed the rest. All the work my be. It’s been a fun project couple more sittings to complete it. Thanks for the dedication Andrea. @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored @bishoprotary @fusion_ink books open for next year and new projects. Nikkohurtado@gmail.com
What are some simple things that make you happy? I mean the real feeling of happiness when you just remember that thing or look at it. Here is some of mine: 1. Sunny weather 2. Playing with my pet 3. Doing something for others
Here are some still shots of @marisalarenfitness @marisalarentattoos arm. Next up is her arm pit. Thank you for looking if you would like to book email me at Nikkohurtado@gmail.com books open now for the new year. Let’s do something sick! @blackanchorworldwide
Took a video of @marisalarenfitness @marisalarentattoos sleeve we finished a little over two years ago. First portrait was The Bride of Frankenstein 5 years ago. All one pass. We are going to go through some deep darks soon but I thought I’d show you. Thanks for giving me the honor @marisalarentattoos for letting me do you sleeve. @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored @bishoprotary @fusion_ink FYI I love making Universal horror monsters it never gets old.
Thank you @therealstanlee for inspiring me in my art. I would have never taken art seriously if it was not for @marvel and your self. When I was young pre teen a kid going through a divorce of his parents comics always inspired me. I remember when I would go through the yellow pages to find out where the comic stores were at so I could get someone to try and take me. I still own the comics I had as kid I’ll cherish them. Thank you for everything you did in your life you impacted so many on the planet. You give me hope of a beautiful world a creative world. Rest In Peace. Your impact will live on forever.

Asterix - the first Ewa’s tattoo ⚡️ Thanks for trust! 🙌🏻 that’s my personal illustration (made earlier this year) turned into a tattoo design. How do you like this different style of tattooing? I’d love to do more stuff like that! #asterix#asterixtattoo#tattoodo#blackworkers
As artists we never stop learning and pushing ourselves and our limits. Tonight my good friend @drag_ink shared with me an incredible tattoo, techniques and some new lessons I can apply to my own art.Never stop learning♥️ @bangbangnyc
Had an amazing and inspiring time at the opening of @hxouse such a special place for the creative youth.
