Tucker Sward – Charlotte, NC Tattoo Artist
I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. Where other kids took notes in class I spent my time filling my notebooks with sketches and characters of my own creation. I’ve been obsessed and in love with 2D creation my whole life. I took that passion and turned it into practice very early on and involved myself in all things arts any way I could. Post high school, I studied illustration at UNC Charlotte. My college career led me to meeting many of Charlotte’s creatives and sparked my career in visual arts. I’ve spent several years now in the local mural scene and have worked all around the city and it’s surrounding areas.
I’ve partnered with some of the most prolific local artists and painted with all kinds of medium. All the while, I’ve stayed true to my first love which is drawing. That affinity for smaller and more controlled medium led me to tattoo. Currently, I have a wide breadth of styles that I like to employ. Veering away from a narrow focus, I have been able to experiment with bold line work, color blending, smooth gray shading, and most importantly, custom design.
