This is the first day for the International London Tattoo Convention! Come and meet the amazing artists that will be working here. Among them: Nikko Hurtado, the godfather of Realistic tattoo.

Recently, Realistic has become one of the most fashionable styles throughout the world, and we’ve witnessed the emergence of many artists who are quite skillful at representing it. Yet Nikko is one of the few people who can make every tattoo he creates solid, and long-lasting. His tattoos won’t disappear after a few months or years… and their colors won’t need to be cleaned or corrected with Photoshop in order to remain bright. This tattooist has some of the finest technical skills in the world.

Check out our gallery and be ready to meet him live at theTobacco Dock.
