We have lost a best friend, father, a husband and legend in the tattoo industry.
On the night of January 8, 2018 , Mike passed away in his vehicle, on his way home, leaving behind a wife, daughter & two sons.
All of us that knew Mike, knew how loyal he was...not only to his wife, kids & friends...but also to the tattoo industry that he clearly held in such high regard.
Throughout 21 years of tattooing, Mike sacrifced tirelessly for everyone around him, even those he had just met. Never forgetting about the outsider & allowing everyone to feel valued .
He has given so much to us...it is our turn to give back to him.
Although we can never repay back the amount of times Mike came through for each of us; it is now our turn to try.
Through this transition & what this kind of life change can bring, Lisa (Mike's wife) & children need us now more than ever.
Mike showed us what it meant to be a good husband, father & friend and how to be generous to all.
To honor Mike and the legacy that he left behind for his family, and for us to help carry, we have decided to pull together, as family & a community, to make sure that Lisa and the kids are taken care of.
Hopefully we can ease the burden, even if just a little bit.
Between funeral costs, monthly living expenses, private school, Lisa being a stay at home mom, etc. This GoFundMe campaign was created to bring a community together, support his family & show how much Mike meant to all of us.
