I’m Mike DeVries, born and raised in Southern California’s San Fernando Valley.
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 realistic animals, movie characters, gaming themes, and I love tattooing 3d mini realistic tattoos!
In addition to owning and operating MD Tattoo Studio in Northridge, Ca. I keep busy with developing new products such as the latest MD Wipe Outz, Advanced Tattoo Towels. Sterilized tattoo care made for artists and their clients! As well as running Memento Publishing, where we market, publish and sell books that encompass a passion for the artistic lifestyle. Have a book idea? “Contact Me!” Additionally, I’m co-founder of Stencil Stuff, a company that offers Stencil Stuff products.
It’s going on 20 years as a tattoo artist and my love for the craft just constantly grows. I wouldn’t change it for anything.
