Carey Matthews from "Best Ink" is one of the contestants in Season 3 of the Oxygen reality tattoo artist competition series.

Carey Matthews has been tattooing for more than 13 years and has been the shop owner of Grafic Ink Studio for over five years. Carey's career had a bumpy start as he worked hard to triumph over the obstacle of being a black tattoo artist in an industry where that is not common. Now, Carey is proud to work 14-hour days by appointment only and excels at dynamic black-and-grey pieces. In addition to being a talented artist from watercolors to graffiti, he also has a passion for customizing lowriders. Although he says he is not one to argue, Carey is a fan of telling it like it is. Once he even kicked an unruly customer out of his shop for trying to set his own price!
