Michelle Lee Fernandez
Artist and Owner 

Michelle Lee Fernandez is a multifaceted artist, entrepreneur, and the owner of Fresh Ink Tattoo IOM. With a fine arts degree and a bachelor's degree in graphic design from the Art Institute of Chicago, Michelle has an impressive background in art and design. 


Michelle's artistic journey started at a young age, and she went on to establish her own mural business at the age of 21. Over the years, she has painted for numerous businesses and private homes, and her fine art pieces have been exhibited in galleries across the USA, Canada, Australia, and the UK. Michelle has also been featured in various publications, cementing her reputation as a talented artist.


In addition to her work in the art world, Michelle has a wealth of experience as a florist, having worked in the USA, Italy, and the UK since 1999. She has also served as an assistant art curator for a gallery with a $2 million art collection for many years, and she played an instrumental role in managing an international art exhibition.


Michelle discovered her passion for tattooing in 2008 and began learning from a tattoo artist in Chicago. She then worked as an artist in California for a few years before moving to the Isle of Man in 2011. As an artist on the Isle of Man, she found it challenging to find opportunities, especially as a tattooist. However, Michelle persevered and opened Fresh Ink Tattoo IOM in 2016, offering something different that no one else on the island was offering. 


Michelle's shop operates during the evenings and on Sundays, making it convenient for clients to get tattoos without losing money during regular business hours. Furthermore, she trains artists on the Isle of Man to become tattooists, giving them the opportunity of a lifetime and clients more options for artists. Michelle is committed to raising standards for health and safety in the industry and hopes to inspire others to believe in themselves and make the world a beautiful place through art.


Michelle's dedication to her craft and her commitment to offering something different to the people of the Isle of Man have made her a respected and sought-after tattoo artist. Whether you're looking for a small, intricate design or a large, complex piece, Michelle has the skill and expertise to bring your vision to life. So why not book an appointment at Fresh Ink Tattoo IOM and experience Michelle's artistry for yourself?
