Matt has been tattooing since 1994. He has owned & operated XS in Rochester since 1998. In early 2014, he bought a dilapidated building in the Cass Corridor which had been sitting mostly vacant for the last several decades. He undertook a major, year and a half long renovation, culminating in the opening of Iconic Tattoo & 3 other businesses in the Iconic building in late 2015. He currently tattoos at both shops, focusing on larger illustrative tattoos, often with a certain amount of Japanese influence in composition & subject matter.
Chase / Fel3000ft has been tattooing for 17 years and has worked @ XS since 2005. His experience in street art, graffiti, & new school tattoos can be seen in all forms of his work; walls, skin, canvas, & sculpture. Though graffiti and street art are his roots, he loves all forms of tattooing and is well versed and well rounded. Known for his urban contemporary street art in Detroit on such locations as Hop Cat and in Eastern Market, he prefers to do more thought provoking art ~ things with metaphor and meaning ~ but is unafraid to keep it light and fun as well.
Steve has been tattooing since 2001. Given his experience, he has a good understanding of limitations of the skin, and knows how to design a tattoo that ages well and flows with the body. Steve enjoys having creative freedom and doing tattoos with floral, organic, cosmic, neo-traditional, occult, medieval, metaphysical, and odd subject matter.
Andrea is our newest addition to the Iconic artist lineup. She recently graduated from the College for Creative Studies with a degree in illustration. Andrea enjoys working with many different mediums and creating custom designs to please each customer.
