Mike had been my favorite artist for a while now and I was finally able to get tattooed by him in November while he was briefly in Philadelphia. Our encounter was short, but he seemed like a really genuine guy. No "cool guy" bullshit from him either. It was very easy to see why he was such a highly respected tattooer. He was also very funny and had me laughing the whole time. I had planned more work from him next time he was in town. Gone way too F***ing soon.
