Specializing in Japaneese and American Traditional

Matt started tattooing in 1998 at age 18 in Clarksville, Tennessee. At age 25 he opened his own studio in Northern California. After 8 years of running his own shop and traveling around the country he decided to come home to Tennessee.
Matt is an incredibly well rounded artist (level 2.3 tatt wizard) and prides himself on being able to manipulate images and styles to suit his client’s needs. His foundation is built from traditional tattoos in both American and Japanese styles- as they say “bold WILL hold”.
Matt has many First Place and Best Of Show awards from tattoo conventions across the country. He is always up for a new challenge and wants to learn everything he can about this industry he has dedicated his life to.

“Tattoos are the highest caliber of personal expression. It is an art form as ancient as time and as modern as tomorrow.”
