About Matt

Large-scale Japanese bodysuits made a lasting impression on Matt at an early age. Being the son of an art-restorationist, art supplies were always available. Taking as many art courses as possible in high school and college, led Matt to the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. Tattooing never left his mind, and he kept his eye on the expanding growth of the medium. He committed himself to have a career based solely on his artistic ability and found that tattooing was the perfect fit for him.

Matt's passion leans towards Japanese work and realism, though he welcomes an eclectic range of different styles and interests including line and dot work, sacred geometry, pop culture and nature tattoos. Matt was awarded Best Large Color for his Star Wars R2D2 & BB8 tattoo at the Pittsburgh Bleed Black & Gold tattoo expo in 2017. Matt has been tattooing since 2013.
