Painting by Mandy Tsung (@mandytsung / @harpyteeth)

Hello, my name is Nik! I am an artist originally hailing from unceded Gabrielino, Tongva lands (Los Angeles, CA) and currently based in unceded Coast Salish, Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, Tsleil-Waututh lands (Vancouver, BC).

My primary art practice right now is tattooing; I am self-taught and have been working professionally as a tattoo artist since 2018. I also occasionally take on freelance illustration projects and commissions.

When I’m not tattooing, I enjoy being overly attached to my dog, having too many personal side art projects happening at once, and accidentally cooking enough food to feed a family of eight despite living with only one other person.
