Thor Nicholas Paul Lottin-Halley

Artist/Martian

From a very young age all I loved to do was draw. On sketchbooks, scrap paper, homework, siblings, it didn’t matter. Naturally this grew into a fascination with tattoos as I grew older. At 20 I finally began learning how to tattoo. Now 6 years later this career has only expanded my passion for art. I grew up in and around Portland and can’t think of a better place to be a working artist. A lot of my inspiration comes from my interests and hobbies; super hero movies, graphic novels, video games, and of course Portland and the Northwest. When it comes to tattooing I have found a fondness for realism and black and grey. I just love all the little detail and really bringing the image to life. If you’d like to set up a consult or ask any questions feel free to email me at thorinkllc@outlook.com.
