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. The resulting artwork is inspired by their humanity and the universal challenges of their lives.

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.

Clients can expect to work closely with Justin, sharing their stories and their inspirations. He takes those ideas and creates unique, custom art.

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