I began my apprenticeship in January 2017. I study directly under my father Jason Buckholtz and get a ton of support and help from my brother Aaron Buckholtz. I enjoy smaller sized as well as doing lettering and more basic tattoos. I’ve grown up in tattoo shops my whole life and see my self very influenced by American traditional and Japanese style of tattooing. If I am not tattooing I enjoy painting flash and doing projects to further my career in tattooing. I’ve been given such a great opportunity to work along side of some of the best guys in the industry and love each day at the shop. Thanks!

Growing up Matt dabbled in various forms of art including street art, acrylic painting, and graphic design. He has always had a desire to be heavily tattooed and, after getting his first tattoo, he completely fell in love with the craft and started directing his artwork toward the American traditional tattoo style. In 2015, Matt started tattooing and in late 2016 he decided to make the move to Washington.
