Clearly advertised as "professional tattooing," Mike Rubendall's New York City and Long Island shops were launched "kind of from the opposite side of where I came in," says Miller, and he doesn't mean East Coast-West Coast. "He's a very smart businessman. He takes his time to get really good artists. I'm totally impressed with the guy." Rubendall's style emphasizes a mix of irezumi, the traditional Japanese style of tattooing, combined with elements of Chinese and Tibetan tattooing and classic horror motifs.
