As an artist from Maryland’s Eastern Shore, I have been creating artwork for over 30 years and tattooing since 1991. When not using a tattoo machine, I create works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, glass, digital design and various sculptural mediums. I continue to experiment with new concepts, materials, and techniques.
Being part owner of both Independent Tattoo and Ancient Art Tattoo, in Delaware, I am consistently working either on paper, canvas, tablet or skin and I continually strive to incorporate modern advancements in technology into much of my work.
Most of my work is inspired by my experience as a professional tattoo artist. I have been digitally sculpting since 1999 and have recently seen a coalescing of both software and hardware which allows me to produce highly detailed, and sculptural pieces. In many cases I am doing a lot of finishing work on the models I have available on here. I also have a large collection of work available on my website, matthewamey.com.
