Joseph Matisa  (@joematisatattoo)

Trenton, NJ

When Joseph Matisa was 13 years old, his father made him his apprentice, teaching Joseph everything he knows. Joseph is very driven and self-motivated, having graduated high school early and started tattooing full time at 17 years old. He opened his first tattoo shop, Kiss of Ink, soon thereafter and opened his second shop, Ink Junction, six years later. Joseph even lived in his car for a year so he could save up to buy a house. He is also a hip-hop artist who goes by the name "Bazooka Joe." When he is not tattooing, he is at home writing and recording music.
