Hyperrealistic Tattoo Portraits of Pop Culture Characters

Nikko Hurtado is known for his hyperrealistic tattoo portraits of pop culture characters. Just a year after tattooing, Nikko created a Batman color portrait tattoo that would forever change his career. It was his first color portrait he had ever created and it ended up winning first place in the Pomona Tattoo Portrait Contest. He’s since starred in numerous TV shows such as LA Ink, Tattoo Wars, and Spike TV’s Ink Master and he’s tattooed such celebrities as Drake, Jesse James and Kat Von D. Here’s a collection of some of his work.
