Founded in 1993, Nomad, is curated and operated by Blake in Portland, Oregon. The Nomad
philosophy of cultural education is embodied through its museum and piercing studio. Honoring the ancient tribal aesthetic, Nomad helps modern people celebrate contemporary rituals while making them aware of the history of body art and the plight of indigenous cultures.
