Matt is a true renaissance man. His artistic background is rooted in drafting and architecture, which he went to school for and studied for quite a while. During this time he dabbled heavily in several other fields of study, including tattooing and a variety of martial arts. He had some success as an MMA fighter, participating in several professional bouts, yet still kept coming back to tattooing time and time again. Eventually his focus became narrowed as he realized that tattooing was his true calling and was what he enjoyed most out of all the things he excelled in. Today Matt has been tattooing professionally for 8 years and is proficient in a variety of styles, including both illustrative and realistic work.
