My Bio

Fires are caused by many sources.

Some are acts of humans.

Others are forces of nature.

-------------------------------------------

Nikki is a professional tattoo artist at

The Tattooed Lady in Zimmerman, MN.

-------------------------------------------

     Creating art is a significant method in which I use to navigate the world and my internal conflicts. I work primarily with paint and mixed drawing media. I'm also a tattoo artist at The Tattooed Lady in Minnesota and enjoy that, through my tattoos, my art becomes a physical part of someone else. A bond is created between myself as an artist and the client whose skin becomes permanently embedded with my work.

     My work revolves around exploring my own sense of identity, the human body, and our connection to the natural world around us. I enjoy manipulating the human figure, combining it with elegant floral imagery, and experimenting with landscape elements. I seek to create a narrative between ourselves and the environment in which we live.

I AM NOW OFFICIALLY A REAL 👏 FULLY LICENSED 👏 TATTOO 👏 ARTIST!!! 🤘🤘 It's been a wild ride taking on an apprenticeship, working fulltime elsewhere, and then going back to school to finish my degree (which, by the way, I'll be graduating in December) bc I LOVE running myself ragged -- it's the best!!! 😂 On a serious note, I have had such incredible positive growth in my life in recent years, and I attribute a lot of my success to having such amazing & supportive people in my life. I am surrounded by friends & family who have been by my side, who have seen me at my worst and lowest points in life,

Greetings humans, I am graduating college in December (yay), which means I have an art show coming up this spring! I'm pretty excited, and I'll have a bunch of brand new artwork on display that I will eventually upload (I promise). It's going to be real tight, and I'm honored to be in a class with some super talented artists. In other slightly relevant news, I have a couple of pieces currently on display at Anoka-Ramsey's annual All-For-Art Juried Exhibition. One of my paintings won the People's Choice Award for 2D work (voted on by the attendees at the opening ceremony). I also sold 4 paintings during our winter art sale back in December.
