Tony Minero – Los Angeles, California
Mike DeVries – Los Angeles, California
Tattoo Styles: Realism, Portrait, Custom
Tattoo Profile: I started tattooing professionally in 2003. As I progressed as a tattoo artist I soon realized that I found my niche with color realism. Constantly refining and polishing this craft keeps me extremely busy and motivated to climb to the next level. A glimpse through my portfolio reveals my preference for wildlife and portrait tattoos. Although realism is the style I’m technically “known for,” I do enjoy tattooing other styles and incorporating different aspects in my work to keep things fresh and interesting. Southern California’s own, Mike Devries is another fantastic tattoo artist. It’s hard to find another tattoo artist that can match Mike’s color realism talents. This award winning artist owns his own shop in Northridge, CA called MD Tattoo Studio and you should consider yourself lucky if you can get in to see him. However, we feel he’s worth the wait.
