Meet Our Award-Winning Tattoo Artist
Anthony Michaels is a professional creative. Anthony has had a phenomenal talent for creating art since a kid. He grew up excelling at sports like football, track and field, and most of all, basketball, for which he attended Pima Community College. After finishing college and pursuing his professional basketball career, he got into tattooing. As a teenager, he drew pictures for the walls of local tattoo shops. So it seemed inevitable for the self-taught artist to start tattooing.
Anthony has been tattooing for ten years. During that time, he has appeared on Spike TV’s Ink Master season seven, in which he won the show’s grand prize. By doing so, he became the first artist to win the competition with the least experience amongst the contestants. Noted for being one of television’s most likable reality stars, he was invited back to Ink Master season ten to be a coach to new competitors.
