Mikhail Andersson, also known by his stage name Mikhail Kondratyev, is a highly respected and accomplished tattoo artist. Throughout his career, he has received numerous awards for his work, including “best of the day” at the New York Empire State Convention, the Charlotte Tattoo Convention, and the Baltimore Tattoo Convention. In 2012, he moved to the United States to further develop his skills as a tattoo artist, and in 2014, he relocated to New York City to continue growing as a professional.
In 2016, he opened his own tattoo shop, First Class Tattoo, located in the Lower East Side/Chinatown area of Miami. In 2017, he expanded his business by opening Change Laser Removal, a laser tattoo removal service that uses the latest alexandrite laser or neodymium-YAG laser technology. As a certified and licensed professional tattoo artist and certified laser technician, he is dedicated to providing high-quality services to his clients.
First Class Tattoo is home to a diverse team of around 8-12 artists with different ethnic backgrounds and specialties, bringing a unique and dynamic perspective to the competitive New York City tattoo scene. The shop has also collaborated with major brands such as Rimmel cosmetics, &(and) pizza, Pet smart and more. Mikhail’s clientele includes a wide range of individuals, from bankers, financial advisors, and stockbrokers to musicians, entrepreneurs, famous YouTubers and celebrities like Anwar Hadid, Dolan Twins, JC Caylen, Cody Saintgnue, Jason Saltzman, Tyson Solomon, Tank Sinatra and many more.
In the future, Mikhail’s goal is to expand his brand and open a larger store with more space for photos and customers. He also hopes to have a TV show that gives viewers a behind-the-scenes look at life in his shop, and to travel to more conventions and guest venues across the US and around the world.
