Matt Decker’s Premium Tattoo shop is the place to go for unpretentious, no-nonsense attitudes from friendly artists who are experts in a wide range of styles. Longtime Oaklander Decker opened Premium five years ago after paying his dues in other local shops, building a strong reputation for being the go-to guy for classic, Americana-style tattoos. These days, Premium is abuzz all day long with the hum of three machines. Matt has built a tight-knit family of artists, including the talented Brett Baumgart, an artist whose specialty is rendering tattoos with breathtaking realism, and Danielle Silva, whose creativity is only matched by her super-fun, punky spirit. Decker is known for really taking the time to develop the concept and image with each client, making sure that the tattoo exceeds expectations before the needle hits skin. As evidenced by its rave online reviews, Premium is the place to go for friendly assistance in the planning and execution of your next ink.
