Matthew Lukesh is about to begin his 16th year as a tattoo artist. In that time he’s studied all styles of tattooing without choosing to specialize in any particular one. However, he’s most thrilled with tattooing realism, whether it be wildlife, horror or portraiture; color or black/grey. When the opportunity arises, Matthew spends his “free time” oil painting; a medium he’s been studying diligently for the past several years. Having recently moved from New Jersey to Iowa, Matthew is bringing his skills and knowledge to assist the amazing team at the Platinum Rose Studio & Gallery.
