Mike started tattooing in 2004 Erie, PA. He was an apprentice at Ink Assassins and worked there until 2009. He was born and raised in Minnesota but has lived in other cities, like, Louisville and Erie. He doesn’t travel as much but once in a while still gets out there on the open road. He likes to focus on being diverse instead of sticking to one style of tattooing, even though his favorite thing to tattoo is lettering.
