TATTOO ARTIST / PIERCER
LEE "BLACK-ARM" NOLAN
Born and raised in Brevard County, I started my apprenticeship in 1999 under the late Chris “CC” Wilcox, the original owner of New Addiction in Melbourne, Florida. I apprenticed for two years and also did my piercing apprenticeship concurrent with my tattoo apprenticeship. I am the only apprentice CC has ever had and therefore, the only one to carry on his teachings. Along the way, I became more focussed on my fitness and became an MMA fighter as well as competing in NAGA tournaments, boxing tournaments, and physique shows.
I have also done several body modifications (on multiple occasions on different clients), such as splitting the human tongue and suspension piercings. I have also done corset piercings as well as dermal piercings. I have removed a bullet from a client as well as extracted a tooth from another. I do the piercings that most piercers are afraid to do or know how to. I am a very intense person but very passionate about the things I do.
In 2015 I learned I have a son and that changed everything about my life. Although I still do the tattoos and piercings, I have taken a step back from the contact sports I used to do and all I do is trying and tattoo and try to be the best dad that I can be. However, I am always excited and look forward to all the challenges I will get to face and overcome. I would say that I am well rounded and very good at the things I do.
