Sex Lives of Inked People: Nick Hawk
NICK HAWK: GIGOLO
After four years in the Air Force I became a stripper to pay the bills, finish up college, and start my own company. Then an escort or gigolo was something that definitely sounded interesting. I really see myself helping and making people happy, and it’s a great feeling. Bookings were minimal in the beginning but definitely gave me some good experience in preparation for my Showtime TV show, Gigolos.
Tattoos were something that I always wanted. I had many ideas, but I thought it was best to not have them, as I was seeking a profession in acting. But when I signed on to the show, I hit the tattoo shop once a week. My main tattoo, located on a large percentage of my body, including my left shoulder, left arm, chest, back, midsection, and penis—yes, on my penis—is a SYMBIOTE. It’s an alien creature from comic books that attaches to you. The creature doesn’t always have the best intentions; it brings out your dark side and makes you not care as much. It’s a metaphor for the life that I have chosen.
I’m definitely more selective with clientele now than when I first started. I’ll meet with anyone, but I typically only see clients who I have a connection with. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet a bunch of wonderful people, see a lot of wonderful places, and do a lot off unstuff. I love what I do,but I put a lot of time, effort, and focus into it, so I can only see so many clients. Not to mention working on my acting career, music, sex and relationship advice website, nickhawksexpert.com, and sex toy and novelty line. My signature product is a dildo that was cast from my own penis. It’s pretty dope.
