POOHKI aka Matt Ward
I'm a Minnesota born-and-raised tattooist, illustrator, painter, husband, and father of four. I've spent the last 20 years perfecting my craft in tattoo, and 30+ years collecting, building, and honing the skills to keep my proficiency in the visual arts growing and ever-expanding. My true passion for creating, to my recollection, goes back as far as a being a fourth-grader in Windom, MN. Inspired by pop-culture, antiques, and frequent excursions through rural farmland, I began to draw with the guidance from a supportive art teacher and loving family.
Ironically, I now open this new chapter of my career with Peregrine Tattoo in the Windom neighborhood of South Minneapolis.
