My name is Nick Herdmann, I currently tattoo at Defining Skin. I am originally from Cleveland Ohio, and moved to Columbus over a decade ago. I was an apprentice at Riot Ink and have been tattooing for 3 years.

More recently I have found my love for tattooing flowers, patchwork and really enjoy doing Neo Traditional designs. I would also like to work more with black & gray realism.

Besides tattooing, I am the co-creator of & I am one of the AV Managers for Hell City Tattoo Festival which keeps me really busy twice a year. When I am not tattooing you can find me hanging out with my family, canoeing, drawing and playing video games. I would love to hear your tattoo ideas!
