I was honored when Mr. Mike Ledoux took time to sit with me at the Live Free or Die Convention a few weeks back, and I will say this; I am a better artist because of the time that was spent with this man.
We all may have a familiar sounding story; Mike copied a dragon out of the wonderful pages of Dungeons and Dragons when he was in fourth grade. He didn’t trace it, he copied it. And it was awesome. He showed everyone he could and it was met with rave reviews. Some people are just born with it they say. He is one of the “some”. Now that’s not to say he didn’t put a lot of heart and soul into his drawing career by any means. He put so much into it in fact that he became an art teacher!
When you start your scholastic career in becoming a teacher of arts you get many different art backgrounds, all of which Mike feels made him a better tattoo artist down the road. Even his sculpting class, in hindsight, brought a different level of depth to his pieces that would not be there otherwise. And it gave him a different edge when he finally picked up a machine.
Yeah, he didn’t start tattooing until about 9 years ago and even then he did it for some extra cash. He was and is a middle/high school art teacher and as we’ve seen in this country of late, teachers are getting a pretty short stick. So tattooing seemed like a natural thing. He never really thought about it before but he took to it well. And it’s a good thing he started because he now works for one of the finest shops in the land.
PowerLine Tattoo in Cranston Rhode Island. I’ve seen them in action at conventions and the trophies build up quickly on their table. With the support of Evan Olin (shop owner and tattoo magician in his own right), Jay Blackburn, Jessica Brennan and Shane Baker, Mike has become better than ever and owes it to the PowerLine family.
Although he has only been with them for about a year and half, the openness of the shop and the communication between artists flows like water. There are no “secrets” here. If one figures out a new technique, everyone will know it by the end of the day. And because of that interaction they have formed an award winning shop with no end in sight.
The best quote I’ve heard in my existence is this, “I love being the worst artist at Powerline Tattoo.” Who says that?! Someone who never wants to stop learning that’s who. The competitions he makes for himself make him strive and work that much harder to obtain his goals. I think with an outlook like Mikes you can’t help but become something bigger than you already are.
So now the nuts, Mike uses Next Gen Orion Full Coil Shaders, Soba Mini Rusto Liners (although he does admit that the Hyper V3 from Stigma Rotary’s is pretty bad ass) and ink wise he sticks with good ole Eternal.
Please stop by PowerLine Tattoo if you’re ever in the Cranston area or check them out at http://www.powerlinetattoo.com/
They would love to meet you and create a piece of art that you will absolutely cherish for the rest of existence.

Attention 18-year-old kids! You might want to rethink that totally kick ass, sick nasty tattoo you're planning on getting to piss off your parents this weekend.
Megan Fox, who decided to get Marilyn Monroe's face permanently inked on her right arm, wants her tattoo gone!
The actress told reporters at a screening of her newest film, Friends With Kids, that she and her 90210 hubby are "both removing tattoos that we don’t necessarily need anymore."
“It sucks — it’s not fun at all," she shared. Megan went on to describe the first (and only, so far) laser removal treatment as, "Extremely painful."
She may have found a less painful alternative, however. If she manages to make her tattoo disappear using this revolutionary method, she may be the first person in HISTORY to do so. Megan plans on harnessing her inner Transformers skillz to will the unwanted tattoo away!
Ha! We're not sure it works like that, but thankfully she's only joking and not going cray cray, as she quipped:
“I’m trying to absorb the ink just through willpower, trying to make it go away on its own and it’s kind of working!”
Unfortunately for Megan, she's just going to have to gather up more courage to go under the laser again. After being asked when she expects not to wake up to Marilyn's face anymore, she revealed, "When I have the nerve to go and get my next laser treatment."
Be strong, gurl!
Check it out and be prepared to be pissed.
NY Ink returned to TLC, channel 52 in Queens, Thursday night with the second season premiere, "Kings of NY." The same faces from the first season were back, though Chris wasn't working at Wooster Social.
The shop has been really busy, meaning they've not only called in a B-team, but they also need their A-team fully in place. Ami gave Tim a call to get him back, but he said he had prior commitments he needed to take care of first. However, that didn't stop him from showing up early to help out his friend.
One theme that was prominent in the season premiere was the tattoo artists' families. Billy, who had turned down Chris' offer to be his apprentice because he couldn't leave Ami, wanted to tattoo to make more to support his, while Tommy and Ami lamented over being apart from theirs. Because of the busy shop, Ami couldn't make it down to Miami like he had planned for the weekend, and though his wife and daughter were going to come up to NY, those plans fell through. The episode did end with a touching scene of Ami talking to his daughter via video chat.
Billy did get a chance to tattoo, but there was still tension between Ami and his apprentice when he told Billy It could've been better and Billy asked for constructive criticism.
Megan and Chris broke up between seasons, but she was in contact with him and visited him at his shop to see how he was after a fight. His eye was pretty bad, and he did have to have surgery. Because of that, he couldn't get into a fight for a few months, and that wouldn't be easy for Chris. She did tell him people were calling Wooster Social for him and asked if he would talk to the guys. However, when he called the shop (and mentioned Jessica's request to be his apprentice), she told him she wouldn't give him his client list. Ami told her to let her know if he called again. Even in two different shops, the tension between the two is still there.
Sarah had Ami tattoo 69 butterflies on her back as a tribute piece to her father, who died at age 69. Whenever she saw a butterfly after he passed, she thought of him. It went across her back diagonally, and she loved it.
Alan Robert from the band Life of Agony had Megan tattoo the cover of his comic book, Crawl to Me, on his leg. It showed the main character, Ryan, of the comic, and the story revolved around him, whom Alan put a lot of himself into. Like Alan said, Megan "really brought it to life."
Billy tattooed "Baron" on Katie, and it was her first tattoo. She was very specific about what she wanted—for it to look like spray paint—since it was her husband's tag. He died three years ago from ALS. Billy did go to Tommy for some quick advice, and Tommy told him to trust himself. Katie did love how it turned out, looking just like a tag.
The most touching story of the episode had to be Sarah, who had Tim tattoo a pinup girl on her ribcage. She was getting it to celebrate a new beginning, as she recently had surgery to restore her hearing. Her husband had recorded the moment she had the devices turned on. Especially touching was the story of her hearing her daughters' voices. Sarah also had Tim tattoo a heart onto the scar behind her ear.
The final tattoo of the episode was Joe's. He had Tommy tattoo a mountain, bell, and river on his arm in memory of his younger brother, who was hiking and slipped off the side of a mountain. Though they looked for his body in the river below, it was never recovered. Joe was using the tattoo to make permanent an oath with his brother that he would attack each day.
NY Ink continues Thursdays at 9PM on TLC, channel 52 in Queens. What did you think of the season 2 premiere, "Kings of NY"?
