Nelson is a graduate of the graphic design program at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario. He worked in the graphic design field for a year and a half but was left dissatisfied with the lack of creative freedom and the absence of illustrative design, a passion that continues to grow every day.
Nelson began his tattooing career in 2004. He is a mostly self-taught tattoo artist, yet he gratefully received guidance from fellow tattoo artists Anthony Veilleux of True Love Tattoo in London, Ontario, and Ian Rose of Universal Tattoo in Ottawa, Ontario. Their support and kindness, as well as their professional advice, helped him pursue his own path that led him to where he is today.
Nelson honed his skills and built his reputation at Dan Allaston's New Moon Tattoo, where he worked from 2006 to 2016.
