Thank you for visiting Gold Cicada Studios!

A bit about me….

Hey there, thanks for visiting Gold Cicada Studios featuring Patterson tattoos! My name is Morgan Patterson. I am a full time tattoo and multi media artist from the mountains of North Carolina currently based in Central Florida. Everything you see here has been made with meticulous care and love by yours truly. I enjoy challenging the boundaries of modern art and finding new ways to mix processes together. I work with mediums such as ceramics, 3D printing, wood burning/laser engraving, polymer clay and more!

I began working with many of these mediums in high school into college years, and continue to learn from new experiments and educators to this day. It is my belief that you never really stop being a student so long as you have the mindset to learn. For this reason I also love teaching others so that they may start an artistic discovery experience of their own. Thank you for taking the time to visit today and be sure to check out @GoldCicadaStudios on instagram to see many of the processes that makes these pieces come to life. Feel free to send me an email ( with any questions or concerns you might have. For all tattoo booking please see the “Tattoo” page on the menu above.
