Mike Lucena Does It All At Flyrite Tattoo

If you live in Williamsburg south of Metropolitan Avenue, you’d probably recognize tattoo artist extraordinaire Mike Lucena: you know, the big guy with long black hair, black shades, a big beard and an even bigger pit bull? (Hi, Harley!) It can be a struggle (read: impossible) in Brooklyn to come up with an original tattoo, so it’s always a good idea to consider the more traditional approach to tattoo art, so at the very least those Modest Mouse lyrics will look cool. And this is what Lucena and the crew at Flyrite do best, embracing classic elements of the craft, from Japanese-style inking to vintage Americana. But, Lucena told us, “We can do it all. It’s good to work in a variety of styles.”
