Mike Trobaugh

Mike got his first tattoo machine in 1968, since then he has tattooed all over the country. He started out in his home state of Nebraska, then to Arizona, California, New Mexico, Colorado, Alaska and Texas. Love brought him to South Dakota, where he started working at Black Hills Tattoo and eventually became owner. Mike decided it was time to slow down a little, and less time working. In 2015, he sold the tattoo shop to Dan and Michelle Lashley. Now that he is semi-retired, he has more time for his hobbies. Mike is a master scuba diver, master mason, member of the Knights Templar, and a lifetime member of the NRA. He has been in a few movies. His passion is still tattooing so he works a few days a week. Mike is a master at his trade and can do any style of tattoo you want.
