Ornamental & Geometric Blackwork by Kirk Nilsen

Ornamental & Geometric Blackwork by Kirk Nilsen

Delicate, dark & detailed.

Kirk Nilsen is one of our go-tos when it comes to the most beautifully ornate blackwork. Bouncing between New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles, Philadelphia and San Francisco, Nilsen has become a true master in his genre of tattooing. His flawless lines, precise dotwork and his ability to merge different styles with his Mendhi-inspired ornamental pieces set him apart from the rest and we're big fans.
