My name's Michel Parisay and chances are good that you're taller than me. I was born in Albany, NY the year Rod Stewart released Forever Young. I always loved art from a young age, and throughout my life art has always been involved in what I've strived to do in one way or another. I fell in love with tattoos in high school, and after dabbling in other arts, realized that it was time to take my passion seriously. I met Craig in 2005, was first tattooed by him in 2006, and told him I wanted to learn to tattoo in the fall of 2010.
I love good food, music, and dark chocolate. I wear Vans shoes, Swatch watches, and Levi's jeans
I started working the front counter at Skinwerks in the summer of 2012, and as of the beginning of 2013 I'm honored to be called Craig's 2nd apprentice ever. the opportunity to be here and be part of a crew that is passionate about life and art combined, is one I couldn't be more grateful for.
