Life is funny some times. You get so caught up in life you forget some memories that you haven’t thought about in a while. To say the least I am truly grateful for the times memories I have created with @sullenclothing @unclejeremy @colorcrimes . This past weekend I had such a great time @clubtattoolasvegas doing some exciting stuff with @mayan_mayhem . I came home feeling inspired and recharged. So thank you @unclejeremy @romantattoos @arlotattoos @ryanashleymalarkey @sean_dowdell and so many others that were there. To the people who follow me and I was able to chat with for a second thanks you for the support and for your time. Oh yeah and this mean mug was on a giant screen on the strip of Las Vegas that was fucking epic now to to get this up in Times Square. Thank you for reading these words people. Have a great day and take a second to be grateful for whatever it is you are grateful for even if it’s just the air you breath in. @blackanchorworldwide Oh yeah don’t mind that pic of me and Arlo. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Lol.
So ready to get back to tattooing some fun color realistic pieces. Hit me up I’m back at it next week in Hesperia, Ca and Hollywood, Ca. Nikkohurtado@gmail.com feeling hungry and ready to do some marathon sessions. This summer has been light on tattoos since I’ve spent a lot of time with my kids. I wanted to open the world up to their eyes and to their heart. This has been a busy summer and it’s not even over yet. Make sure to come say what’s up @clubtattoolasvegas this Saturday from 2-5 I’ll be tattooing my friend @kellyeden not sure if we are working on her back or not but either way it’s going to be fun. @blackanchorworldwide was not just a name inspired by Step brothers it’s a reality. Thanks for the continued support people I am truly grateful.
A little hike before leaving the island. Thanks Hawaii you are beautiful and the people are so nice. Was able to get a quick hike in before we leave. Beautiful view from Diamond Head.

“Your body is not a temple, it's an amusement park. Enjoy the ride." @anthonybourdain #anthonybourdain This quote seemed fitting. Life is fast. I’m 37 and yesterday I was a kid growing up in Pacoima, Ca. And leaving my bike in the front yard only for it to be stolen when I ran in for water literally for 5 min after I was told not to leave it in the front. Some early life lessons.Today I sit on a balcony Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii over looking the ocean. Art/tattooing takes me all over the place. Here with my kids and family. My next trip is to Russia and in the spirit of Mr. Bourdain I will go with a open heart for the culture, food and experience of a different place. Huge thank you to @hawaiitattooexpo it was a great time. Thank you Danny it was nice meeting your family. And to @fusionink_pro @deanocook @cheeseburgerchampion @bishoprotary @blackanchorworldwide @stencilanchored it was a great time. To my client that endured such a long sitting! You are a bad ass. Thank you @sarley
All set up @hawaiitattooexpo let’s get it. I brought limited amount of stuff I think I’ve given half of it away. But we have all kinds of goodies for sale. Come and grab it while you can I’ll be at the booth tattooing all weekend. If you have a good idea I kept Sunday open. Only for a fun banger.
A couple of radio interviews for @iheartradio @island985fm & @939beat funny shit. Promoting and getting ready for the @hawaiitattooexpo with my brother @cheeseburgerchampion Mahalo. Take a listen and I’ll see all of you at the expo! They had this pimp ass purple chair so naturally it brought out my inner pin up. Swipe to check it out haha!
Man! Sometimes life is just something I sit back and contemplate. I didn’t graduate high school. I was labeled a loser because I didn’t have the same opportunity as others. I was not dumb I just was not able to show up and do the work because life threw me a curve ball. Art has always been a positive influencer. It has taken me all over the globe. I have met people that it would just be hard to just get in a room with. Follow your heart. It is important. Do not agree in your mind when some one puts you down. I am living proof that you can get kicked in the balls and stand up. I have not made it I am not anywhere that I have set my goals to but when I look back and think I have surpassed what people thought I would achieve or what I even expected of my self. I just keep working. People get better and better at tattoos and I love it. I feel in my soul that I hope I helped plant a seed in these young talented hard working individuals. Like @deanocook @boristattoo @chaudesaigues_stephane @roberthernandeztattoos @bobtyrrell and my mentors from the past that are still killing it daily. I mean nothing by this post. I still feel the fire inside I am hungry and I have a crazy amount of ambition. I must say thank you to the people who have done this longer than me and paved a way. To the younger generation keep killing it. It keeps me hungry and motivated so thank you. To everyone else thank you for the continued support I’m truly grateful. Man I truly feel like life/god/whatever you call it has blessed me. Thank you, thank you so much. Fucking life is crazy. I will keep reaching for whatever is next. I got your guys back and you have mine. #thankful.
Heading to Hawaii again for the @hawaiitattooexpo I’ll be tattooing Friday and Saturday and hanging out Sunday to meet everyone. I’ll have some merchandise with me Hats, Shirts, 30 sets of mini prints that include some rad stickers. I will also be bringing 20 of the new towels and sunglasses I just made perfect for that Hawaii life style. Come by say what’s up and grab some stuff. See you guys there. Swipe to check out what I’m bringing. Limited amount so it will go fast. @blackanchorworldwide I will also be sharing a booth with one of my favorite peeps on the planet @cheeseburgerchampion AKA Sexy Mexi.
