Owned by Pin-Up Model, Sabina Kelley and Tattoo Artist, Nixx Gessner
Smiles n Cries is Las Vegas’ newest tattoo studio. Focusing on high-quality art in a modern and unique tattoo experience unlike any other you’ve seen before. Bringing lifestyle and tattooing into 2023.
If tattooing wasn’t enough, located directly adjacent to the tattoo studio is Las Vegas-based streetwear company, “City of Sin” in their first brick-and-mortar store. Power couple and husband and wife team are well-respected names in the tattoo industry and have traveled the world together to work at the most prestigious tattoo conventions.
Nixx has been in the industry for 25 years and owned one of the leading tattoo studios in Australia. He is a true artist that can tattoo any style but specializes in black and grey semi-realism and realism. Both focus more on Chicano art, religious imagery, anything lowrider and hip-hop-related.
Sabina is not new to Vegas. She was a showgirl in Jubilee and the first heavily tattooed showgirl to headline on the Las Vegas Strip, in the show PinUp. You may even recognize her from the TV show, Best Ink where she was a permanent celebrity judge for all 3 seasons.
Being an international PinUp model with tattoos, Sabina has graced the cover of almost every tattoo magazine and has hosted tattoo conventions worldwide.
After moving from Australia to Las Vegas it was only a matter of time before Nixx followed suit and opened up a tattoo studio. As a husband and wife team, it seemed like it was the best move to do this together and Smiles n Cries was born.
Come in for the superior Smiles n Cries experience encompassing hip hop, streetwear, tattoos, and one-of-a-kind artwork.
