Originally from Amherst, Ohio Mathew has grown up surrounded by art, stemming from his grandparents to his own parents.
Spending his entire life surrounded by art, he became obsessed, taking every art class he could to the only time he did his home work, it was covered in art work.
This caused him to pursue his passion, always wanting to tattoo from a young age he spent the majority of his youth admiring all tattoos.
He started the majority of his work In primarily black work. Only using black markers for shading, stippling, cross hatching his way into the darkness.
He found his desire to create Japanese inspired artwork from watching Ami James and Chris Garver, studying their dragons, flowers and other Japanese imagery.
At that point he was hooked.
Mathew started tattooing in 2016 studying under Justen Borrero, and his wife Steph Modified.
Now you’ll find him working at their Shop here in Florida, with frequent travels to Ohio, his home town, and Malaysia also tattooing.
He specializes in Neo-Traditional tattoo style and Japanese.
