Exhibition: Tattoo Artist Mike Dorsey

The London Tattoo Convention are honoured to welcome tattoo artist and painter Mike Dorsey to the show this September.

Mike Dorsey is a 48 year old tattooer from Cincinnati, Ohio. Tattooing since 1989, Dorsey owned and tattooed from his shop Permanent Productions for 22 years, before handing the premises over to friends to work on his own private studio location. 

Dorsey is known for his Japanese woodblock-style paintings with a pop-culture twist. From rock-stars to wrestlers, Dorsey has immortalised a host of famous faces in his works. These unique portraits are often combined with genius twists on traditional Japanese folk tales; Dorsey's work is as clever as it is playful. 

We are delighted to welcome Mike Dorsey to the event this September with an exhibition of his recent works.

Don't miss the chance to view this brilliant collection at The London Tattoo Convention, 28-29-30th September. Advance tickets are now on sale.
