After deciding Uni wasn't for me, I made it my ultimate goal and dream in life to become an artist...
I've been fascinated by tattooing since a very young age. I was brought up by a blue-haired, tattooed rocker...
My parents really supported being a creative personality and I am really glad they did that...
Hey, I’m Nicola. I’m the lass you come to for questions and bookings. I do the meet and greets, I make the best brews of your life and have a little huge laugh.
I’ve been obsessed with tattoos for as long as I can remember. My dad was covered from head to toe, so naturally, I befriended artists in my hometown of Barrow In Furness.
After I turned 16 I was offered my first ever job in my dad’s best friends studio, working as a receptionist. I also helped design tattoos for some of his clients which helped me appreciate every stage in the design process. I knew I was in the right place at the right time. I decided that this would be the path to follow in the future.
I moved to Manchester 10 years ago, I worked in various retail jobs to keep myself afloat, but kept up with my passion for drawing and followed tattoo artists on Instagram. After 16 years in retail, I decided it was time to change things and follow my original pursuit.
I remember the first time I came into Flesh, I’d found their website and booked in to get a tattoo a couple of months before they advertised for the receptionist position. I was blown away by the talent of the artists and the atmosphere of the studio. I was on holiday when I noticed they’d started advertising for a receptionist job, I just had to apply as I KNEW I had to be a part of it.
I couldn’t believe I got the job, I can honestly say working here and being a part of the Flesh team has been the best 2 years of my life. I love meeting all the artists’ clients and finding out about their lives. I’ve met so many fascinating people and some have become great friends.
