Mike Toth is an award-winning tattoo artist in Bend, Oregon.
Mike has been tattooing professionally since November 2005. Starting his apprenticeship in Scottsdale, AZ, working in San Luis Obispo, and now back in beautiful Bend, OR has had a very diverse impact on his artwork. Working in his own style that can only be described as realism with a very mature and dynamic color palette, Mike says, ” I enjoy working with each individual client on all facets of each project.” “At the same time the collector must give me artistic freedom in order for the piece to reach it’s full potential as well as me reaching my own conceptually and emotionally.”
” Tattooing as a fine art is so multifaceted, much like the clients that we work on, I feel that it is important to create each piece as a team in order to reach a developed piece of art that the collector and I are both very excited about.”
Mike now works from his downtown Bend studio Toth Art Collective located at 1024 NW Bond Street. The studio features a full art gallery that allows him to display his artwork as well as feature artists from all over. Mike has also brought in tattoo artists Aaron Borden and Travis Hedlund to produce quality tattooing in Central Oregon.
Mike Toth is dedicated to his work, always stays on the cutting edge of all aspects of the industry, and feels obligated to bring our community, as well as the rest of the tattoo industry groundbreaking work. “I almost feel that it’s my duty to provide tattoo collectors from Oregon with world class work.” “Just because we live in a slightly smaller community doesn’t mean that the skill sets and ideas of many of our citizens are small as well.”
