Justin Nordine Watercolor Tattoo Artist.jpg


Justin Nordine is a tattoo artist and a Colorado native. After college Justin became an art teacher to inner city students who would eventually become the inspiration for The Raw Canvas, Justin's tattoo studio. 

His drive for tattooing comes from the stories of his clients, humanity and nature.  The resulting artwork is inspired by the stories they have shared, humanity and the universal challenges we all face.

Justin is an internationally-recognized expert in fine-art watercolor technique. His expertise shapes his signature aesthetic, dream-like imagery with graphical elements and underlying watercolor tones. Structure and chaos dance together.

His current artistic direction will be focusing on nature, human faces, animals and abstract design elements.  He also uses graphic elements in most of his work (geometry, shapes, etc). He is looking for clients interested in large scale work and allowing for full, unrestricted creation.

It is my personal goal that my clients walk away with an amazing piece of art and an incredible experience.
