Nelson, born and raised in New Jersey, began tattooing as an apprentice straight out of high-school. After years of perfecting his craft at local tattoo shops in Jersey and Florida, Nelson decided it was time to make his dream a reality.
“I had my doubts about whether or not I’d make money and be successful or just completely fail—but I knew it was worth taking the risk”, says Nelson. Seven years later, Borrowed Time Tattoo was born and has been nothing short of a success.
Over the last two years, Nelson’s TikTok account, @jonnelson_tattoos, has gained a following of over 558k with views anywhere from 200k to 20.9M. His cinematic content is no doubt the epitome of creative satire.
In celebration of their fifth anniversary this May, Nelson chose to give back to Ronald McDonald House Charities because he values and supports their mission in assisting children and their families well-being through difficult times. Nelson has family members and friends whose lives were forever changed under the compassionate and supportive care provided by RMHC during their time of need.
