Nikki Sin Costalupes

With and impressive career as a convertion artist, and high demand for local work Nikki Costalupes is being proclaimed as "The female tattooist" in Reno, and not to mention a professional badass. From tattooing to pinstriping and everything in between she is a master of the arts. Nikki is also established as the only female tattooist at the Buffalo Chip in Sturgis, SD during the world famous Sturgis Bike Rally. (spoiler alert: a tv show will be in the works this year)


Nikki attended a military school in Arizona for her high school career from which she graduated at the top of her class at the age of 16. She claims this school taught her the discipline and work ethic on which she has based her career and morality. Upon arriving back in Nevada she began her tattooing apprenticeship not wanting to waste any time in achieving her dreams to be a Body Modification Artist. She has been tattooing since '07. "I really enjoy doing black and grey realisitic work (portraits) and american traditional work the best. Honestly im open to everything though, you point i poke." She states.


In her spare time she likes to paint tattoo flash, pinstripe, work on her '64 Dart, and spend quality time with her dog Presley. " I love to stay productive, and take on new challenges. I enjoy learning something new every day, especially when it involves tattooing and the arts . I want to travel the world with my trades someday, theres so much beauty and knowledge out there, i cant help but feel eager to progress further in my career!"
