About Me

My Uncle Sal operated his own tattoo studio, Body Graphics, in South Central LA for years in the early 90's. That's where I found my love for art. I was young, excited and determined to be the best I can be. After a couple of years, I moved my tattoo studio to Las Vegas with my Uncle's blessing.

My name is Mike and I was raised in Los Angeles, California. I'm a professional tattoo artist with over a decade of experience, but have been exposed to body art for over 15 years. My peeps know me better as ``Big Mike``, and black and grey tattoos are my specialty.

Whenever you're in the market for body art; shop around, observe the tattoo artist's portfolios, personality and most importantly the price you pay has to match the quality of the tattoo.

There are so many tattoo studios in Las Vegas and locals know that where you get the very best prices and quality tattoos are the local's shops. It's just a matter of the artist's reputation and style.

I was the owner and founder of VEGAS SKIN ART LLC for a couple of years. I have tattooed many popular local artists and producers in Las Vegas with help of good people i.e. music artists, producers, low-rider car clubs, popular radio DJs and loyal clients. Ask them and they will tell you where to go for your next tattoo and unmatched customer service. I have worked very hard for my reputation for body art. There are tattooers and tattoo artists…which one you prefer??? A tattooer inserts ink in your body, an artist creates art! See the difference!!!

I have expanded my network even further in the past year, helping me reach my goals. Creativity is fun and every client deserves the best. After all, if it isn't for word of mouth, I'll be in trouble.

My biggest delights are client's face expressions when they observe a tattoo applied with passion, unmatched customer service, and prices!!! But just like life has it, the economy got me too and I lost my tattoo studio. But I am still creating body art!!!

Any spare time I'm blessed with I like watching my sons play football, and spending time with my beautiful wife Vickie.

I always give group discounts and give away free tattoos to my clients that bring me referrals. I keep track and I'm very affordable for the quality art. God bless!!
