Italian artist Marco C. Matarese , with his extraordinary attention to detail, creates surprisingly light and elegant tattoos in a style close to engraving.

Before the tattoo, Marco has worked more than 15 years as a restorer of castles, churches and residences, and as a collector and seller of antiques - which leave a mark on his art, bringing architectural accuracy and refinement to detail.

In his tattoo works according to engraving technique, uses thin, parallel lines, comparing their movement with intensity of the strokes, giving volume to the image.

When you look at Marco's works - you are involuntarily transferred to the distant past, to the pages of books that have captured the story.
