*** AGENDA FULL & CLOSED TILL SEPTEMBER 2017 ***

I am currently scheduling new appointments for September only.

The rest of my agenda is full till the mid SEPTEMBER 2017 (meaning every day is completely booked, I don’t have a cancellations list so there’s no point to email me for a date prior to September).

Thank you for your patience.

Hi there, my name is James Nidecker and I am a tattoo artist and graphic designer. I have lived, worked and tattooed in Bangkok and New York and currently live and tattoo in my home town of Amsterdam (The Netherlands).

I have my own tattoo studio in Amsterdam called New Amsterdam Tattoo Studio which has an official Dutch GGD tattoo license and is based at Nachtlab creative spaces (address: Isolatorweg 36, Amsterdam). My working days in Amsterdam sometimes vary per month so email me first to check my availability. My current waiting list is approximately about 3-4 months at this moment.
Every Saturday I also work at Tattoo Mick (address: Grote Spuistraat 41, Dordrecht) which happens to be the oldest tattoo shop in the city of Dordrecht. My studio can only be visited if you have an appointment (no walk in option), Tattoo Mick is open for walk ins between 09.00 and 17.00.

I try to stay within a certain style of tattooing and mainly focus on dotwork, geometrical designs, black & grey and a combination of old school and/or neo traditional tattoos. Also I’m currently only working on medium and larger projects.

UPDATE! As of the 1st of January 2017 I’ll be gradually switching my tattoo style towards a combination of black & grey with (Neo) Traditional and geometrical elements incorporated. Check out my Instagram for updates on designs in this style of tattooing. This means I will NOT do every kind of geometrical tattoo request anymore.

To see my recent work please check out the tattoos I have done in the portfolio section or on Instagram to see more about my style of tattooing.

Due to the high volume of requests I might not be able to accept every request but I’ll always do my best to reply to every email.

All films you find on this site are shot, directed and edited by me and my girl Kiki on location in New York, Bangkok and The Netherlands.
