What up friends, my name is Charles Stephen Nicoli II...also known as Chuck Delux. I have been tattooing since 2006, and went through my tattoo apprenticeship at Extreme Graphix on Dewey Avenue in Rochester N.Y. I have done various forms of art ever since I can remember, majored in art throughout high school and later attended the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale FL. Before becoming a tattoo artist, I had done graphic design work as well as started a few clothing lines. Tattooing was never something I thought I would become a part of, but I magically fell into it when my brother brought a design I created into Extreme Graphix and was asked if I might be interested in giving it a shot. It was the best decision I had ever made. I absolutely love what I do. It is the most rewarding job I have ever had, and an honor and a blessing to not only be creative in my work, but do something so personal and permanent on people. I am grateful for all the people who helped and motivated me from the beginning, and to all the people I have met and shared time in the chair with.
Thank you all for your support!!!
