My biography and career path until now.
My name is Michel also known as Miky, I was born and raised in Italy although for the last 7 years I’ve been travelling and living in more than 28 countries, tattooing and studying Art with the influence of so many different cultures.
I began my journey in the tattoo industry in 2010 in London. Here I spent my first two years at the 103 Skull Tattoo Studio, getting a traditional tattoo apprenticeship.
In the next years I then improved my knowledge in Italy followed by a voyage through Mexico, Central and South America. Here I studied and practice some unique ancient tattoo’s techniques like Maya and Inca’s. As a result my creativity and inspiration experienced an exponential growth.
In 2014/15 I moved to Barcelona and immediately felt in love with its art and warmth. While performing tattoos, I deepened the knowledge of the human anatomy and the study of painting’s techniques in an art academy. In this way I further my education and understanding of colours and lights allowing me to perform higher quality tattoos.
From 2016 I relocated myself to Australia and finally decided to settle in Melbourne know as the Aussie Art Capital.
Being myself an Art enthusiast makes me love many different mediums as painting, sculpture, illustration and of course tattoos. My curiosity and hunger of always learning new things and techniques keep my art in constant change and evolution, in a way that it gets hard to define it within only one style.
I love to name my style as Free Style Art which is a combination of techniques, mainly geometric, watercolour, and realism. The technique I use it is based on the subject and what the person need to express. The only constant in my work is the love for what I'm doing.
I always love to the establish a connection with the person going to get tattooed. In fact my aim it’s to empathize and feel your idea so I can better convert it in art on paper and next on skin, making the whole process an enjoyable and unforgettable life event.
