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, and continue to encourage me to just keep doing better. Y'all are the best.

I have a wonderful boyfriend who has helped me work through my insecurities and pushed me toward breaking back out of my shell to take chances and simply try new things. He gets crazy excited for me when I accomplish even the smallest goals. 💖💕

I have some hella rad friends who have been more than patient with me thru all of my horrible life choices in the past when others chose to walk away.
I have family continuing to cheer me on and support my work, which means so much to me.

I've had many amazing teachers in my life both throughout high school and college who have motivated me in so many ways to continue learning and to push thru the hard times.

And of course, I have been granted the pleasure to work with such beautiful, talented, good-humored, and supportive women at The Tattooed Lady. I could not ask for a more easy-going group of people and positive environment to grow in. I have learned so much and continue to press onward with high hopes and bigger dreams.

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. rainbow heart

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. :happy: 

I've been crazy busy lately with school and work, and all that. I'll miss school, but I'm way ready to graduate so I can have some free time! (And more time for tattooing!)

That's all for now,

-nik
