Hey, I'm Michael, but you can call me Aku! 🖤 I'm a proud queer tattoo artist with a passion for creating art. My specialties revolve around semi-realism anime tattoos, neotraditional designs, and black and grey realism.

Tattooing is more than just a job for me; it's my life's calling. I weave magic onto people's skin, turning their ideas into one-of-a-kind masterpieces. I love the challenge of crafting unique tattoos that speak to each individual's personality, story, and interests!

Beyond tattooing, I'm a fierce advocate for celebrating diversity and creating an inclusive space within the tattoo community. My art is a platform for spreading love and acceptance.
