Brand new Netflix series Tattoo Redo launched on the streaming service on July 29th, 2021. Just like UK shows Tattoo Fixers and Just Tattoo Of Us combined, Tattoo Redo sees peoples’ horrendous inkings etched over and given a new lease of life.
Matt Beckerich was the first tattoo artist on the show to get stuck into the job of covering up someone’s bad tattoo. The first tatt he was tasked with working on was actually hard to describe, but it was done by a tattoo artist who had also touched Tupac Shakur – and that was enough for the client at the time!
Matt Beckerich on Tattoo Redo
Dubbed “Crisp and classy” by the show’s host, Jessimae Peluso, Matt has been tattooing for over 20 years in 2021.
‘Matty B’ hails from Long Island, New York.
He mostly does really elaborate Japanese tattoos, Jessimae said: “It’s all so fancy“.
Speaking of his craft, Matt said: “One of the things I love about tattooing is the escape. When I’m working on a large piece, the whole outside world disappears. You escape into the tattooing.“
