Tattoo Artist

From a boy with a dream and a passion for Nintendo and bed wetting to a man of many hobbies, an obsessor of art, and a procrastinator of life. I introduce myself as Mikey Lo. I've been tattooing since 2006 and drawing since I was eleventeen years old. I have never limited myself to one particular style, Im confident in tattooing any style just as well as the next. 99% of my work is custom drawn on paper or free handed directly onto skin to give my clients a one of a kind piece of art, not a copy or gimmick. My main hobbies consist of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I can quote the movie top gun better than you and all your friends, but my favorite movie is gremlins. I love fishing and the only thing stopping me from being pure white trash is lack of motivation. If I had to describe myself in one word it would be "proffesionalasfuck". I love life and live to laugh, I'm pretty easygoing. Come get tattooed by me for the full experience! I ban the word "tat". I don't tat people up, I do Tattoos how you like 'em, done how I love 'em, just good goddamn motherfucking tattoos!

Tattoo Artist

Tattooing since 2010 , I had my first tattoo made on me by a "scratcher" in a basement , he was not artistic at all and I was so I figured if he can do this why cant I ? So I came across some artist and they gave me tips to build a neatly organized portfolio so I ran with the idea and never looked back, starting my apprenticeship in 2011  I dedicate all my hard work to my two mentors that I still consider my bosses never not teaching me anything new, thank you Geo Ruiz and Adrian Morales. I strive to make good tattoos and have a fun time doing them, pleasing my clients and bringing a smile out of someone with my long lasting work on them I would consider a successful tattoo.  Preferring to do anything color realism or black and grey realism.

Tattoo Artist

I was lucky enough to start my career as a tattoo artist at the age of 18. Tattoos have always caught my eye since I was little, & my appreciation for this industry continues to grow every day. I'm thankful to have met the people I have that helped influence my art style today. I started working professionally at Labyrinth Tattoo in Channahon, IL but currently work at Skin Gallery in Downers Grove, IL. Black & gray realism & lettering have always stood out to me & that's what I love to do. All of my lettering is custom drawn & designed. I put everything I have into the tattoos that I do because that piece of art is going to be there forever.
