Nik Pew on illustrating, success and Love Thy Chopper

Nik Pew brings his passion and creativity to not just tattooing, but also re-building motorcycles and cars. The Denver native has been tattooing for twenty years and is known for illustrating custom designs. He currently works at Landmark Tattooing and donates his time to Love Thy Chopper, a fundraiser that benefits Wilderness on Wheels. In advance of that July 12 event, we spoke with Nik Pew about how he got into tattooing, and the motorcycle he rebuilt for Love Thy Chopper.
