New Zealander in Ink

Auckland tattooist Nikole Lowe, 36, is one of four London-based artists featured on the Discovery Channel’s six-part reality show London Ink, a series which delves into the world of tattooing. Lowe is interviewed in the Times Online column ‘Day in the Life Of’. Currently working at Clerkenwell studio ‘Into You’, Lowe started tattooing in 1991 at Auckland studio Dermagraphics under the tutelage of the late Phil Matthias. The Discovery Channel London Ink biography describes her as “one of the UK’s most sought after artists.” “Her particular brand of Japanese bodywork, frequently on a large scale, is highly identifiable and much admired by an ever growing fan base.”
