Mehai Bakaty is a second-generation tattoo artist, who has been tattooing for over 25 years. Born and raised in New York’s Lower East Side, he worked with his father Mike Bakaty during the city’s tattoo prohibition. When the ban was lifted in 1997, the Bakatys opened Fineline Tattoo in the Lower East Side. Mehai specializes in contemporary American tattooing with a Japanese influence. His work has been shown in various gallery and museum shows, and on The Learning Channel and other U.S. and foreign television programs.
