Black & Grey Tattoo Artist in London
Micky decided he wanted to be a tattoo artist when he was 16, after seeing several of his older friends in Italy get tattoos. He bought his first tattoo machine in 2008 and has been tattooing full time for about four years. He started his career at Sims Tattoo South London where he taught himself most of the skills he uses today.
He loves to tattoo in black and grey. He uses a range of gradients with an outline which results in a realistic approach to his own drawings. He draws inspiration from oriental and etching style pieces of art. He takes a mathematical approach to his work similar to Dutch graphic artist Escher.
Micky takes a hands-on innovative approach to his work which is shown in his ability to use free hand on styles such as tribal. In his spare time, he likes wood work and creating different things. He has an amazing ability to draw with pens and many of his flash pieces are actually drawn with blue biro.
Just had my very first tattoo done by Ben and couldn't be more pleased. From the very first email to the shop they were supportive and very accommodating. I was so nervous but Ben made me feel at ease and I got the exact tattoo that I wanted. Such an enjoyable day. I'll be booking Ben again for the next ink I want done

Amazing experience getting my first tattoo here. The staff were excellent in helping me get an appointment that suited me. The atmosphere in the studio was great.
Got my first big tattoo, half sleeve on my forearm and couldn’t of picked a better place to have it done. The artist George went Beyond my expectations and done it all in 6 hours And a it was very in-depth tattoo. I recommend this parlour all day!

Had a 7 hour Japanese piece done with Davide De Cinto. Service was great, Davide's work was fanastic and I feel the price was really good value for money in terms of the quality of work Davide is putting out. Highly recommended.
