Piercing was Mike’s dream job when he was 16 and covered in piercings himself. Unfortunately, he couldn’t get an apprenticeship at that age, so instead he worked within a local coffee shop whilst studying film and TV at the University of Cumbria.

Fast forward a few years and Mike was hired in Turbo Espresso – the coffee shop within Immortal Art Studio alongside helping to run the tattoo reception. A piercing apprenticeship opened and now Mike feels he’s right where he belongs, doing something he loves and is truly passionate about.

Since performing his first piercing in January 2018, Mike has already moved to mostly freehand piercing, switched to internally threaded, Implant grade titanium jewellery, and has attended the UKAPP conference in Manchester twice; which has greatly developed many of his skills.

Mike aims to become an APP member by next year and is already starting to supply high end jewellery by Anatometal and others.

Mike is now located on the ground floor with full disabled access
