NICOLE JOY MILLER

Tattoo Artist

Established in this shared reality on January, nineteenth, nineteen seventy six. Discovered the ability to draw at five years of age. Spent just enough time in Colleges for the Arts to learn what hard work can accomplish. Was given the opportunity to tattoo in the summer of my twentieth year. Fourteen years later sold a successful tattoo shop and cast a ship west for California. I have come to California with a deep and profound respect for what I do. I live in a way that is in total accordance with producing the finest possible work. I am constantly fine tuning myself, my skills, and my art. It is my hope that my portfolio speaks well for all these things.
