Michael, class of '85; 1981 I got my start in the Tattoo Industry from Diamond Glenn. Even though by industry standards I got a late start, my career has been timed with bloom and boom of tattooing in America. Some might say that I am "Old School" or a "Traditional" tattoo artist, though I believe myself to be a well rounded artist proficient in all styles of tattooing. Personally I prefer traditional and photo realism. Once in a while there is a magic in tattooing where the art it self seems more real than life on a daily basics; and that keeps me tattooing. May your next tattoo be that magical!
I apprenticed under Michael C. Bridges, the owner of Tattoo Consortium, and 12 years later, I'm still here. I really do love my job more than anything. It makes me happy, and I couldn't imagine doing anything else. I currently have an apprentice of my own, and I'm excited to teach her the things Michael has taught me, and pass down the opportunity to have such an awesome and fulfilling experience. I love working here. I love our clients, and I couldn't ask for a better family.
I started professionally in 2002. I built 3 tattoo shops. Owned Blackfox Tattoo & Piercing in Tucson AZ for the last 3 years. I have been tattooing for 6 years and piercing for 15 years. I can do a variety of styles but, I love anything bold and bright!
