Things are about to get real spicy at Black Anchor Tattoo, the home base of world renowned tattoo artist Nikko Hurtado, this weekend. Normally in the tattoo world, collectors cringe when they hear the term spicy as that is the typical warning an artist will give before inking a particularly sensitive spot on the body. Have no fear, this time the only pain will come from the tingle as the capsaicin hits your taste buds as you bite into a slice of Pizza Hut's Spicy Lover's pizza.
Inspired by the bold flavors and spices of Pizza Hut's newest Spicy Lover's Pizza and Pizza Hut's beloved iconography, Nikko has worked with Pizza Hut to create exclusive Hut-inspired tattoos. For one day only, Nikko's Black Anchor Tattoo Parlor becomes Fire & Ink—the first-ever spicy pizza and tattoo parlor.
Fire & Ink will be taking place this Saturday, February 26, between 12:00 and 6:00 pm. Those who are bold enough for the Spicy Lover's pizza must also prove themselves adventurous enough to step up to the dartboard and let chance decide the pizza-themed tattoo they'll be getting inked by one of the many talented artists on hand. But that's just beginner stuff. One attendee will prove themselves the spiciest of all by getting a mystery tattoo they won't be able to look at until it's finished.
Even if you weren't able to snag a spot to get tattooed at Fire & Ink on Saturday, you can check out the event on Inked's Instagram and TikTok pages. You'll be able to watch as Nikko's designs come to the life on the skin of some very happy pizza aficionados. And considering that they've been designed by Nikko, you know they're going to be fire, just like the pizza.
