FLESH TO FANTASY TATTOO EMPORIUM – BELLEFONTAINE, OH
Michael Hill is the proud and well established owner and an artist of Flesh to Fantasy Tattoo Emporium and owner of The Knotted Dragon Leather Goods. Big Mike has been tattooing since 1988, but he did not get into or even open a studio until 1996. He specialiizes in portraits, realism color, and black and grey. Big Mike said, “Portraits are always important to me. They reflect peoples love for someone or something.”
As a published and award winning tattoo artist, Big Mike has been through many learning trials and tribulations. To overcome the hardships of being a great artist, he had to push harder; while people slept, he was tattooing, when people were at the bar, he was tattooing instead.
Some of his greatest influences are music and art as well as the artistic stylings of Salvador Doli. Big Mike’s favorite artist and idol in the tattoo industry is Bob Tyrell.
