Mike Tyson surprised the crew at Old City Tattoo (44 S. 2nd) when he strolled in Tuesday afternoon looking for someone to ink black roses on his left forearm. Tattoo artist Martin LaCasse, who just relased an art book called “365” through Presto Art Publishing, took Tyson in the back room and spent about 90 minutes tattooing the former heavyweight champion of the world turned “Hangover” co-star. Tyson’s Philly-raised wife Lakiha Spicer and their baby, who’s just over a year old, hung out in the front of the shop, while their limo driver idled outside.
