OWNER | TATTOOER

Matthew

I started as an apprentice body piercer at the Cherrycore Studio in 2012. In 2014, I was offered the opportunity to learn tattooing under AJ Taylor; a traditional style tattoo artist of 18+ years.
I have since developed a unique, neo-traditional / new school style incorporating bold, crisp lines and bright colours. I take inspiration from nature, animals, Japanese anime and traditional tattooing styles of art.
I studied a Bachelor of Arts (Visual Arts major) at Deakin University during my tattooing apprenticeship.

I absolutely love everything body art! I'm passionate about all safe practices in the piercing and tattooing industry. I am a proud supporter and member of the organisations that support our industry, such as the APP, AUPP and the ATG.
