Michael Hovaguimian is a native of Los Angeles, California, and a second-generation Armenian immigrant. He was deeply involved in the arts from a young age, exploring music, drawing, and painting. His passion for composing and recording music prompted him to establish Left Hand Recording Studio in Los Angeles, where he both engineered bands and crafted his own musical works. Inspired by a commitment to community service, he dedicated over a decade to teaching special education before venturing into tattooing as a channel for his artistic expression.

Specializing in black and gray realism as well as color realism, Michael finds tattooing to be his ultimate form of expression. His time at Deanna James’ Eden Body Art Studio was transformative, marking significant personal and professional growth. Now, embarking on a new chapter, he has established his private tattoo studio in Dallas, TX. Here, he continues to fuse his passion for art with a commitment to serving others. Michael is currently available for tattoo appointments and oil painting commissions.
