Nicole Kendrick - Tattoo Artist

Tattoo Artist

Nicole began college at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology when she was 15 years old and graduated with a BS in pre-med, proving that when she sets her mind to something, nothing can stop her. As soon as she could hold a pencil as a toddler, Nicole’s passion for art rocketed, and there has rarely been a day in her life when she wasn’t creating art. Her work has been published in journals and magazines such as Rapid City’s Zine and ISPE’s Telicom, and she was even commissioned by an overseas sorority to create their official logo. Many pieces of Nicole’s artwork have been sold locally at Rapid City’s Shaviq Art Gallery. All throughout her life, Nicole has been constantly encouraged by friends and family to pursue art as her profession. Even before beginning her exciting career with Wild Idea Tattoo, her friends and family had her create the designs for their tattoos. Nicole’s art skills are wide ranging, spanning the gamut from beautiful women with captivating eyes to macabre skeletons and everything in between. Artists she is inspired by include Sharuzen, Teresa sharp, Carla wyzgala, Dustin Bailard, Christopher Lovell, and Iain McCaig. She has an uncanny knack for turning a person’s verbal art request into a piece that magically expresses the very sentiment that was yearning to be made manifest. Nicole has always “lived” her art, which is evidenced by her own artistic physical presentation, so her decision to put her unique talents to work as a tattoo artist was a natural choice. Experience Nicole’s artwork for yourself, and take part in her unstoppable talent and energy.”
