The Art of Mike Dorsey

The London Tattoo Convention are thrilled to welcome back tattooer and painter Mike Dorsey for his second art exhibition in the UK.

Mike Dorsey is a tattoo artist 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 back to the event this September with an exhibition of his most recent works.

Don't miss the chance to view this brilliant collection at The London Tattoo Convention, 27-28-29th September. Tickets are now on sale.
