Nore’s first few tattoos were in 1995 and he didn’t take it seriously while working at a shop until 1997. He likes to be well rounded and does everything from black and grey portraits to traditional color work. Jaime Trujillo and Brandon “Porky” Lepore were two influential people in his tattoo development.
Nore never did a traditional apprenticeship, he just grew up in the hood and was able to tattoo early on. “There are not many careers people wake up excited to do every day. It’s something I’ve always wanted to learn since 8 years old. Tattooing decides for you what you want.”
