Matthew Lukesh is about to begin his 20th year as a tattoo artist. In that expanse of time he’s studied all styles of tattooing without choosing to specialize in any particular one. He was instructed early on in his career to put the client before his ego. However, come 2019, he will solely focus on his black and grey work to grow beyond a “jack of all trades”. He prefers tattooing realism, whether it be wildlife, horror or portraiture, but doesn’t limit himself to these subjects. When the opportunity arises, Matthew spends his “free time” oil painting; a medium he’s been studying diligently for the past thirteen years. Having moved from New Jersey to Iowa, Matthew is bringing his skills and knowledge to assist the amazing team at the Platinum Rose Studio.
