Tucker has a strong background in art, he excelled at painting, drawing, and music. It was only natural that he would fall in love with tattoos at a very young age. From the start , he was drawn to Dark Styled Lettering and Neo-Traditional artwork. Tucker specializes in free-hand lettering, but also enjoys working in Black & Gray realism and Traditional Black work.
Tucker began tattooing in Quakertown, PA under Jason Tapper at Make Your Mark Tattoo in 2008. He then made the move to South Florida in 2011. Tucker tattooed in South Beach for a brief period, but his need to express his creativity lead him to the comfort of a fully custom studio. Tucker then moved on to manage and tattoo at Frank LaNatra’s old studio Eternal Ink for 3 years before moving to Into the Woods Tattoo & Gallery.
In December of 2020 he decided to make the move to the beautiful Smoky Mountains and join the Studio 617 family.
Tucker - Starting in December 2020
"Tattooing has always been a passion of mine since I can remember, being able to create permanent art on someones body is an amazing feeling. I knew from a very young age I would be covered in tattoos and be a part of this industry and I’ve never looked back. Every tattoo is an opportunity to grow as an artist and as a person; working with and tattooing people from all walks of life is one of the many things I love about this path. I mostly prefer doing darker imagery/designs but am always down to take part in any creative journey." - Tucker
