After leaving the insane asylum in 1986, Matt spent the next many years causing reckless shenanigans by day and living under bridges by night. He started his art career with crude cave man style drawings under bridges. Once being reintroduced to mainstream society, Matt was given a job at a local circus, and trained with the chimps, when a local tattoo artist stumbled upon him and learned of his crude drawing styles. After years of training, Matt was taught the ways of the tattoo machine and tattoo world. And, the rest, as they say, is history. Come on by the shop where he works and watch as he makes his living and story in ink. Beware though, he sometimes bites.
