Mike Evans started tattooing in 2003 in the Oklahoma underground; a necessary evil as tattooing in Oklahoma was illegal until 2007. He helped spearhead the fight to legalize tattooing in Oklahoma — the last state to legalize the art form. And once tattooing became legal, he became the first licensed artist in the state.
A self-taught artist, Mike has built a reputable business drawing clientele from much of the mid-west, won numerous awards, and his work has been published worldwide. Specializing in photo-realism, Mike loves working in both color and black and gray. Mike has tattooed on five of the seven continents and has clientele in Russia, Germany, Austria, and the US.
Mike continues to travel the world with an aim of tattooing as many people as possible and to spread a positive global perception of the American tattoo industry.
