His primal drive to create has ensured that Nick Chaboya’s art in its many forms is perpetually developing, which is due in no small part to the mentors who instilled a fantastic philosophy into Nick’s cognitive process. The painterly style he brought to tattooing has been refined to a point where you must concede that Nick is one of the foremost tattoo artists in his field, and a genuinely captivating soul.

Learning to tattoo has been one of the hardest and most complicated things I’ve ever done! I feel like everyday I’m still learning new skin types, needle setups, pigments; not to mention having to grow artistically all the time. There are always so many variables, so many different situations, but the challenge of it keeps me attracted to the art form.

There are many tattooers that seem like they’re able to do it with such ease, and at times I’m envious of their ability, but at other times I’m not at all, because the struggle and the learning of the process is to me, romantically, one of the most enjoyable parts about tattooing.

I do think that formal art training was beneficial to me not only as a tattooist, but as an artist. For techniques, concepts and history, I do not think schooling is needed. That information is out there for anybody who’s interested in seeking it out.

The main thing I learned from schooling was how to ask questions. If you have a certain aesthetic that is your desired look, then you have to ask yourself questions to get yourself to the finished product that you want. Like I’ve said many times before, if the piece that you are going to create is about color, is the use of line important? These types of questions help to concentrate your idea into a very legible, readable, unique, and consistent body of artwork, which I think at times is the hardest thing to create.

About Nick Chaboya

I try to make sure that I spend one day a week that is only for recharging but it is really hard for me! During the other six days of the week, almost all of my waking hours are spent doing something art-related.

Other than that, I love to hang out with my beautiful partner in life my wife, travel our planet, see family and friends, BBQ, go to the local farmers market, play with the dogs and raise our chickens!
