About the Artist:
El Nigro is an Italian tattoo artist and illustrator based in Naples, Italy. He has worked since 1999 as an illustrator, painter and fine artist, exhibiting nationally and internationally in solo and group shows, mostly under a different nickname, until 2009. Later, in 2011, he approached the tattoo scene becoming, in a quite short time, very recognizable due his high-contrast Black and White work. The melancholic temperament is the fulcrum of his work, that lurks behind an imaginary that draws and blends his various interests such as literature, music, poetry, Victorian aesthetics and folklore, investigating the emotional frailties of our times. His work is present in private Collections all over the world.
