(NYX: No Way Home#1) - Working for an unidentified power player, the "Tattoo Man" filmed footage of Kiden Nixon as she worked at the Corner Cafe.

(NYX: No Way Home#2) - As Kiden argued with Bobby Soul about their survival, the "Tattoo Man" phoned his boss to tell him his job was done. His boss informed him that he was not yet finished and the "Tattoo Man" reminded his boss that he was only asking for trouble. Despite this, his boss told him to continue watching Kiden Nixon and her friends.

(NYX: No Way Home#3 (fb) - BTS) - As part of his boss' plan to test Kiden Nixon, the "Tattoo Man" helped point the blame of Cameron Palmer's kidnapping on Kiden, Bobby and Tatiana.

(NYX: No Way Home#3) - After Kiden and Bobby left a gunshot-wounded Tatiana Caban at a hospital, the "Tattoo Man" watched them discuss what the next step in rescuing the kidnapped Cameron Palmer was. When Bobby phoned the number found by Tatiana in Cameron's apartment, the "Tattoo Man" answered the phone and said "boo." He then confronted Bobby, Kiden and Lil' Bro at Empire State University, where he revealed that he had helped pin Cameron's kidnapped on Kiden, Bobby and Tatiana. He then revealed that it was his job to push and groom people for their own survival. Briefly distracted by Lil' Bro's mental projection of a dragon and a robot, he knocked out Kiden with his knife, prompting Bobby Soul to taken possession of the "Tattoo Man" and force him to kill himself with his own knife.

(NYX: No Way Home#4) – Kiden Nixon used her powers to search the "Tattoo Man"'s body for clues to Cameron  Palmer's location, finding a card left on his body by the "Sniper Chick."
