My name is Mickey Schlick. I am a 30 year old freelancer dabbling in just about anything creative that I can get my hands on. I am a tattoo artist by trade and I work at Blaque Owl Tattoo in Missoula, Montana. When I’m not at the shop, I am hanging out with my family, working on tattoo drawings and art projects from home. When not working on tattoos, I am usually trying to peddle one of my other trades. I love exploring new mediums and setting and achieving new goals. I’ve been tattooing for about 8 years now but from time to time I leave the trade to focus on other artistic endeavors.

I didn’t get into art until comparatively late in life and when I did I quickly became fond of realism in general and also portraiture with the theory that any problem I would face in my attempts to achieve realism I would run into somewhere between the ears. These days I feel comfortable enough with realism that I really want to start pushing things. Expand and maybe even improve on the stuff that mother nature offers us. Lately with the addition of digital media to my life I have been able to explore this much more freely than I could previously. Hopefully in the very near future some of this new stuff that I am practicing will start to work it’s way into my portfolio.

I’ve been proud to have the opportunity to offer my customers “Anything from skin to steel” and working in almost any medium. From tattooing, traditional drawing and painting, airbrushing, automotive painting, and wall murals to photography and digital media with the most recent addition of website implementation. Tattooing is my first love, but I enjoy having the tools to bring my customers ideas to life.

What happens at the Paradise Tattoo Gathering?


At The Paradise Tattoo Gathering, we're all about creating events that inspire tattooers and artists of all mediums, both online and in real life. It's one of our most favorite things! We believe that when creatives come together, magic happens. That's why we've made it our mission to provide a platform for artists to connect, learn, and grow.

Our events are designed to be inclusive and welcoming to artists of all levels, from beginners to seasoned professionals, and all cultures/sub-cultures.  We believe that everyone has something to teach and something to learn. That's why our artist list is always filled with inspirational talent from a variety of backgrounds and styles.


At The Paradise Tattoo Gathering, we're all about helping tattooers, apprentices, and tattoo vets take their skills to the next level. That's why our events are designed to be immersive professional development experiences that include a wide range of activities.

From seminars and discussion panels to critiques and workshops, our events are tailored to meet the needs of tattooers at all levels. We believe that by bringing together talent from around the world, we can create a collaborative learning environment that is truly life-changing.

Our events have been described as transformative by many tattooers, who have come away from them feeling inspired, motivated, and empowered. We hope you'll join us for one of our upcoming events and experience the magic for yourself.


Let me tell you something about the power of networking. It can change lives. Bringing like-minded people together is a powerful force that can inspire, create working relationships, and forge lifelong friendships. For over a decade, the PTG event has been doing just that.

The PTG brings together diverse artists who share a common goal - to better themselves, to better the tattoo community, and to make a positive impact on the world. Tattooing is a form of art that has a significant impact on cultures, and it is our responsibility to become positive stewards of this art for the time we are here.

By working with like-minded individuals, we can create a culture of respect, inclusivity, and creativity. The PTG is a place where artists can meet, network, and collaborate to shape the future of the tattoo industry and its impact on society.
