Mike Roberts was born and raised in Portland, Oregon. He learned how to tattoo here at Grizzly under the watchful eye of Tyler Adams. His work is a spin on traditional tattooing, incorporating his love of all things esoteric, chaotic, fantastical, and dark. Roberts has spent many years honing his skills as an illustrator, as well as making poster art for punk and metal bands.
His interests include hoisting horns of hard seltzer, the ring of clashing swords, the roar of nuclear fire, and cute dogs.
