5 minutes with… Mike Boyd

slider-mike-boyd

Mike Boyd has been tattooing for five years now and currently works at The Circle, right in the heart of Soho. Influenced by nature and science, particularly sacred geometry and the natural world, Mike’s dabbled in a lot of genres of tattooing and has combined all his favourite parts to create something unique. This personal style was the product of a particularly fierce hangover, so don’t let anyone ever tell you nothing good comes from boozing.
