I have lived with Professor Clark’s artwork since I was a child. My grandfather’s trunk in the basement was opened when my grandmother, Princess Beatrice, died and I was given its contents to play with. Fortunately, I had a deep respect for the items.
I carried the idea of the book in my head for decades and while I knew the life story of my grandparents, I didn’t have a great enough understanding of the art work and its significance in history. Then, I met Nick and we put this book together. Professor Clark was a gentleman tattoo artist and spent most of his career in South Africa and it was important to me that his work come to light.
I am a collector of antique teapots.
My name is Nicholas York. I’m a tattoo artist based in Denton, Texas and have been tattooing for 10 years! I have a heavy passion for the early history of professional tattooing and dedicate as much free time as I can to studying the tattoo artists that helped build this industry.
My tattoo style is American Traditional with a heavy emphasis on antique tones and exclusively executing designs as they would have been done in the past. I keep my tattoo work as historically accurate as possible.
I am an avid anime enjoyer and I have a massive Pokémon card collection.
