I'm Matt Maldonado and I am a tattoo artist based out of Holland, Michigan at a shop called Studio Seventeen.​ I have been tattooing now for about 12 years and I specialize in New School, Neo-Traditional, Color Realism and Black/Gray Realism. I'm a huge nerd and love all things Pop-Culture and I love to tattoo that stuff even more. 

Aside from tattoo work I also illustrate sketch cards for Topps (Star Wars, TWD, Stranger Things, Mars Attacks and GPK amongst others) comic books and have recently found a love of making merchandise (hence my shop on here). I have a long history in the arts ever since the first grade and have dabbled in a bit of everything including a degree in graphic design.
