My name is Michael Rose and I was born in 1976, London, England. I first discovered my artistic ability at the young age of 3, when I won a primary school competition for a painting I created and I was also featured in my local paper. I started my professional art career in 1994 as a tattoo artist and since then I have enjoyed having my work featured in numerous magazines, newspapers and books all around the world, most of these features have been documented on the Press Page on this website. To add to my attributes I am a multi award winning tattoo artist with "first place" awards won in the UK and abroad.
In 2010, I started to experiment with other art mediums and instantly enjoyed the freedom they gave me to practice my artwork in my favourite artistic style, Photorealism. I went on to spend the next 8 years studying, developing my techniques and learning from other Photo-realists.
I still tattoo today but by appointment only and preferably in a photorealistic style. In my spare time i like to share my artistic knowledge through my
YouTube Channel or through workshops when the opportunity to do so allows me.
I have recently created an online
