Tattoo Artist: Nick Stear

Nick Stear is an American artist who has been designing tattoos for more than 15 years. Not only is he famous for his work on the Harry Potter theme, but he has also designed artwork for Lady Gaga, Metallica, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers, among others. He is also the creator and artist of the comic book character, Saffron. Stear began his career in tattooing by getting a job shadowing the founder of Blackthorne Tattoo, Bill Malone, back in 1995. Soon after, he started his own shop in New York City. One of his early designs was for a then-divorced Lady Gaga, who wanted to be able to wear a ‘tattoo that told the world she was single again’. Now, years later, the singer has the tattoo and wears it proudly. Stear’s work can also be found on countless T-shirts, hoodies, and accessories.

Tattoo Artist: J.K. Rowling

J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter books, is another prolific tattoo artist. She has been described as a ‘genius’ by many a famous face, including H.R. McMaster, Mike Pence, and Donald Trump. Rowling began designing tattoos for friends and family, and then expanded her operation, creating unique designs for fans of all ages. In 2014, she designed a tattoo for Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, in celebration of his 40th birthday. The following year, she designed a series of four tattoos for the band, Black Sabbath. Each of the four pieces was a different monster from the classic horror movie, Hellraiser. Fans of the band had to choose from among the four designs to have the band’s logo etched in their skin for the rest of their lives. In 2018, she collaborated with comic book artist, Joe Zieja, to create a ‘shared artwork’ session that saw both artists design a piece of artwork for the other’s body. The end product was a design inspired by The Lord of the Rings that paid homage to both franchises. This is not Rowling’s only venture into the world of comics. She has also designed several pieces of original artwork for Marvel and Dark Horse Comics. One of her most popular pieces is a graphic novel-styled piece inspired by the Sherlock Holmes tale, The Adventure of the Speckled Band. The design was inspired by Holmes’s client, Lord Darlington, who had a tattoo of a band of interlocking rings on his hand.

Tattoo Artist: D’Israeli

Designer D’Israeli is arguably best known for his work on the Harry Potter theme, but he has also been responsible for some of the most memorable album covers of all time, with the likes of U2’s The Joshua Tree and Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams both featuring some of his unique and colorful tattoo designs.

Designer D’Israeli got his start in tattooing by apprenticing under the world-famous Stanley Mouse. He went on to gain further fame for designing album covers for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Metallica, and the Beastie Boys. In 2015, he collaborated with director, Tommy Wiseau, on a short film called, The Art of Tattooing. The short showcased D’Israeli’s amazing artwork and unique perspective on color. In 2018, D’Israeli teamed up with the fashion designers, JOVANI and CHRIS MICHAELS, to create a capsule collection of hoodies and T-shirts based on the unique and groundbreaking designs found on the two designers’ bodies (JOVANI and CHRISTIE MICHAELS).
