NEW PHOTOS & NEW UPDATES COMING SOON!!!! STAY TUNED AND REVISIT SOON!!!!
Thank you for taking time out of your day to take a look at my website. Whether you are here looking to set an appointment, or simply just killing time by internet surfing, I appreciate your time and interest. This page is currently undergoing some revamping and overhauling. So, for more current examples of my tattoo work, please visit my Instagram page, @manifestmark, as it is updated almost immediately as each tattoo is finished. Now that I have all that out of the way, let me introduce myself....
My name is Mark Matthews & I am a very fortunate man in the sense that I get the luxury of doing something that I love for a living. Tattooing. It has been an active passion of mine ever since I was introduced to it at the young age of seventeen. I came into tattooing the hard way, self taught, but have luckily been blessed with the opportunity to work with some amazing tattoo artists along the way of my tattoo career who have motivated, inspired & helped me become a better artist as I still, to this day, heed the lessons I've learned working alongside them. I just want to keep getting better & I have been blessed to have an incredible network of top shelf tattooers as friends and peers who help push me to be better on a daily basis.
I have been tattooing professionally since the turn of the century & have had a passion for art ever since I can remember. It is the only area of my world that has seen consistent effort from me since early childhood. Alongside tattooing, I am also proficient in the mediums of ink/watercolor, acrylic paint, pencil, prismacolor pencil, pen and ink, marker rendering & have recently started dabbling in oil paints. I am capable of many styles of tattooing & I'm always looking to have my creative limits pushed. I do my best to communicate well with my clients to insure that they are going to express through their tattoo EXACTLY what they want when they sit in my chair. So, if you are even entertaining a thought about getting a tattoo, come by and talk to me or give me a call. From small tattoos to sleeves or full back/body pieces, I'll be glad to help you make your idea a reality!
I currently live in Brooklyn, NY. I tattoo out of a private studio as well as hang out at Armageddon Ink Gallery catching walk-ins when I'm in a street shop grind mode, which is located in Brooklyn as well. Yet, I make regular trips to Northern California to tattoo at my West Coast tattoo home, Fat Cat Tattoo in the Carmichael area of Sacramento, to take care of the people I have in my hometown. I also do many tattoo conventions, as well as guest spots at tattoo shops nationwide. So, be sure you stay tuned to my Events page!!!! You never know where I'll be popping up next!!!!
Now that we've got the introduction, blanket statements & small talk out of the way, gimme a call or text so we can get your tattoo project started! If you can communicate it, I can ink it!!!!
I require a tattoo deposit of $100-$200 per piece. This deposit is non-refundable and is used to lock your appointment and tattoo artwork in. My hourly rate ranges from $150 - $200 an hour. Depending mostly upon the size of your piece. The larger the piece? The lower the hourly rate gets.
I am also open to commissioned artwork in any of the above mentioned mediums. If you are interested, feel free to email me, call or leave a message for me at (916) 505-5711 so we can discuss the execution of your next art or tattoo project!
