Mike Avena – Mike Avena Tattoos
I first started drawing in the 5th grade,on and off through high school.One of my good friends insisted I tattoo him, because he knew I can do it ,I didn’t! so in 1990 was the first time I picked up a machine. Now I’ve been tattooing ever since . I guess I’m known for a lot of my Aztec/Mayan flash that most very shop has out there… how they got it ,is another story all together ,lol, just saying.
I specialize in black and grey, realism ,portraits , and color work also ,I’m into oil painting on canvas , charcoal drawing etc…. Worked with Steve Soto for a year ,7 yrs with Inkslingers 8 yrs with Body Illusions and 5 years homemade, back in 1990, till 1995.
