Nicole McCord of Tempe's Urban Art Tattoo and Piercing on Pinterest Tattoos, Mythology, and Inking Dark, Sultry Ladies
Josh Chesler McCord's eccentric style of tattooing fits best with bigger tattoos, as evidenced by the outlines of back pieces and leg sleeves behind her
When Nicole McCord started tattooing in 1996, she was under the same mistaken impression that she believes a lot of young people fall for.
"I originally didn't want to be a starving artist, and I was one of those kids who assumed that tattooers were all rock stars," McCord says. "I was wrong, obviously, but it's very rewarding. I'm glad I'm not just doing something to pay the bills."
When she's not tattooing, McCord spends her free time on her other artistic passions, like painting and drawing.
