Tampa Florida is home to Michael Murphy and Murphy Auto Group (MAG), a combination of five automotive retail dealerships and seven ancillary and support companies.  However, the present picture does not reveal the full story that led to this success.

Michael grew up with a father who brought their family out of poverty by being drafted by the Dodgers.  Following a career-ending injury, Michael’s father began working for his brother’s car dealership and eventually bought his own.  This is where Michael was introduced to the business of cars, though, he seriously pursued baseball till college.  Once in college, he took the same road as his father and got into the auto industry.  Upon finishing college, Michael helped move his father’s business forward by developing their online presence and after his father received a shocking cancer diagnosis, he became one of the youngest general managers in the nation.

Today, Mike Murphy is the CEO and president of Murphy Auto Group and anticipates immense future success.  In an interview, he laid out the steps that led him to become a flourishing entrepreneur.  “Step one was to be born, as my father is the founder of our original company. Step two was to fail at being a professional athlete. Step three was to surround myself with smart mentors and listen about how they made their millions and became ultra-successful”.  And just as he has seen with his own family, his greatest reward is “watching somebody change their life for the better, especially when it lasts multiple generations”.

For over two decades, Skin Design Tattoos has been a leading name in the tattoo industry. Recently, it opened its flagship studio in the vibrant Soho district of New York City. The launch, sponsored by Philipp Plein and Villon, attracted a glamorous crowd, including top figures from New York’s entertainment and tattoo scenes. Notable attendees included comedian Shiggy, members of VH1’s “Black Ink Crew,” and renowned tattoo artist Keith Hernandez. Photographer Josh Sobel elegantly captured the event, which was coordinated by PR professionals Shawn Germain of Tomorrow’s Group and Johnny Donovan.

The studio’s design, featuring sleek lines and raw brick, provides an elegant backdrop for the intricate black and grey realism tattoos that Skin Design is famous for. This aesthetic is echoed in the collections of sponsor Philipp Plein, known for his use of stark lines and intense shading to add depth.

Robert Pho, CEO and Founder of Skin Design, shared his artistic vision at the event, describing his designs as “not just art; they are narratives of life’s stark contrasts, capturing tales of survival, redemption, and transformation.”

The studio is also known for its comprehensive apprenticeship program, where artists like Reena Pho, now a seasoned tattooist at Skin Design, hone their skills under Robert’s mentorship. Robert also hinted at future philanthropic efforts through a non-profit aimed at supporting aspiring artists who face financial constraints.

Since its inception, Robert Pho’s dedication has driven Skin Design Tattoos to international acclaim and a respected position in the tattoo world. The opening of the flagship studio at 285 Lafayette Street in New York is a testament to the brand’s enduring influence and innovation in tattoo artistry.
