Meet Nico Tortorella, Host of MTV's 'How Far Is Tattoo Far?'

By Pippa Raga

You don't need much background information to jump in and binge MTV's How Far Is Tattoo Far? Based on the British MTV's Just Tattoo of Us, the show picks friends, family members, and couples who design tattoos for each other. Except, the person can't see the tattoo they've had chosen for them until it's already on their body forever. 

And if the hosts of How Far Is Tattoo Far? seem oddly familiar, it might be that you recognize reality TV princess Snooki from her tenure on Jersey Shore. But Nicolo "Nico" Tortorella is no stranger to the camera, either. 

So, who is Nico from How Far Is Tattoo Far?

The 30-year-old genderfluid Illinois native got their start in theater and in 2009, was cast in the CW's The Beautiful Life: TBL, which followed a group of 11 models living together in NYC and lasted one season. Between their first show in 2009 and the moment they were cast as Josh in Darren Star's series Younger, the role they're most often remembered for, Nico also appeared in ABC's Make It or Break It and FOX's The Following. 

They've also made some appearances on the big screen in films such as Twelve, Scream 4 and have even starred in a 2015 independent film, Hunter&Game.
