A Moment with Matthew Hockaday - Real Detroit's Best Tattoo Artist of 2013

A Moment with Matthew Hockaday - Real Detroit's Best Tattoo Artist of 2013

March 09, 2017

I am a very impatient girl and I hate waiting. In the words of Veruca Salt, “I want it now.” Or in this case I have been sitting on a really cool interview for 3 days that I want to share with you now!

This past weekend we were invited by InkAddict clothing to come check out the Motor City Tattoo Expo and interview one of their featured artists,Matthew Hocakday. What we didn't know was that Matthew had recently found out that he was going to be named the Real Detroit Best Local TattooArtist in their latest 'Best of Detroit' released this past Wednesday. He shared the news with us and sat down to do the interview, but made us wait a few days before we could release it to our readers.

Examples of Matt's work

Matthew started tattooing in 1999, but he is also passionate about oil painting. He is an artist that uses everything from paper to human skin to create beauty. He does some of the most realistic faces that we have ever seen and is very passionate about what he does.

Matthew already has a waiting list, but I imagine that his appointment book will be filling up more and more as word gets out. You can fill out a form on his website to book an appointment with him. I read online that he really wants to tattoo Bill Murray,so that might be your in to get bumped up on the list.

Special thanks to InkAddict for making this interview possible and for having us come out to the convention. We look forward to doing more with your brand in the future. Check out InkAddict's tattoo shirts and other alternative clothing made by one of a kind tattoo artists.
