I'm currently working at Red Rocket Tattoo in NYC.

I still travel often to San Francisco and San Diego, and have guested at shops around the country.

If you are a new or existing client, contact me if you're interested in getting work in either NYC, San Francisco, or San Diego.

MattyTat - Custom designs for your skin or canvas

I recently moved to back to NYC, but still do many trips to San Francisco, San Diego, and other cities.

I am currently taking on new projects and appointments for 2019. Due to my busy travel schedule, I will be working mostly by appointment. It is the client's responsibility to bring all necessary reference material plus a non-refundable deposit to the consultation. It is always important to know what you're getting into with regards to multi-session work.

In addition to my tattoo gallery which showcases some of the finished pieces I've done, check out my new work in progress gallery, as well as my cover-ups gallery.


My work is largely organic-based and includes waves, flowers, fish, and nature. I'm always exploring new color combinations, but also ink black & gray pieces, both realistic and abstract.


Flowers, skulls, birds, dragons, and nature scenes are just some of the themes of the boards I create. I also get inspired by city landscapes, such as bridges, skylines, and city streets.


I spend much of my free time creating custom paintings, prints, logos, and designs. I enjoy working with both acrylic and oil paints, on canvas, wood, paper, or any other medium.
