A martial arts practitioner, Nick wanted to cover an old tattoo he had on his right upper arm.
He says, "In the Chinese zodiac I was born in the year of the dragon. As a kid I started reading a lot of swords and sorcery type fantasy books, and there are lots of dragons in those. As an adult I practice Shaolin Kempo, a martial art based around five animal styles, one of which is the dragon. I don't quite fight like a dragon, but I'd like to. Really, it only makes sense that I should have a tattoo of one. Besides, dragons are badass! "
