artist michael rose


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. I am also dedicating myself in helping others reach and realise their artistic goals by sharing over 30 years of knowledge through my YouTube Channel and a variety of unique online Artist courses

It feel's very rewarding to have another artist tell me I have helped them improve and also gained the confidence they needed to go on with their artistic adventures.

When I am asked to describe myself; I simply say,

"Dad of two cheeky monkeys, 

passionate about my work, driven, highly organised, friendly, tea drinking biscuit lover"
