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. 

I've gathered some of our favorites from Nilsen for ya'll to check out below- so have a look and let us know what you think, and don't forget to give him a follow on Instagram for his latest work!
