While his entrance into tattooing was heavily influenced by an early interest in art, skating, and music, Micah’s work continues to be inspired by his travels and the natural backdrop of his home in the Midwest. After learning and working at shops around the country, Micah has come to lay roots in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Northern Tide pays homage to his muse: both the wilderness of Michigan’s upper peninsula and the pebbled shores of the Great Lakes.
Micah specializes in custom-designed American traditional and Polynesian tribal tattoos. Characterized by bright colors and bold lines, Micah’s style harnesses both the easy-going aesthetic of the Pacific Islands and the charm of the Midwest. Whatever the subject matter, however, Micah delivers clients his signature “Midwest Aloha” with unmistakable style, attention to detail, and quality.
As he dedicates his time at home to Northern Tide, Micah continues to travel across the country. When he is not on a surfboard, a skateboard, or a bike, he can be found doing what he loves best – meeting new people and making great tattoos.
