Hi, I’m Mike Hessinger. I’ve been an artist my whole life and don’t have any plans on changing now. I got my start drawing comic books and ninja turtles in grade school and have developed a love for all forms of art. I attended Rowan University where I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine arts, concentrating on illustration/graphic design. After college I worked as freelance graphic designer but realized that it wasn’t the perfect fit for me in the art world. After some Bouncing around trying different artistic endeavors I was lucky enough to find my true passion, tattooing. Iwas trained in house by Stevie and Diane and have been at Moonlight Tattoo my whole career. When it comes to tattoos, I enjoy the challenge of working a variety of styles. If I HAD to choose a favourite genre, I would probably say American Traditional or Fantasy/Horror Black and Grey. My experience as a graphic designer has also given me a deep appreciation for text.
Outside of Tattooing I’m involved in animal rescue and love working with cats. When I’m able I try and make it out to as many metal concerts as I can. music is a huge inspiration to me and Metal has always been my genre of choice.
Thanks for learning a little more about me, I hope to see you soon in my chair and give
you your new favorite Tattoo.
