Nickolas, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far?

"I opened Royal Flesh Tattoo and Piercing to the public May 15, 2009. It all started with a super late night after the bars closed in Chicago Winter, 2008. Talking about opening some kind of business and doing something different than going out till 4 and 5 in the morning, more than a few days a week.

The tattoo shop idea came up along with Laundry mat, cell phone store, social club, bar or nightclub, pedicab. I come from a photo and video background and want to so something in business that was artistic minded. So Royal Flesh Tattoo was conceived.
