Mike has had an interest in art since his early teens with a background in graffiti and streetart. In following his artist calling after high school he then went on to graduate from Curry College with a degree in Graphic Design and a minor in Advanced Studio Art. After completing his degree he was employed as an independent artist working on branding and marketing for local clothing companies around the Boston area. His tattoo work now surrounds realism in black and gray. Michael continues to push forward with his technical illustration style works to create one-of- a-kind tattoos for his clients.
