About Matt Gone

Hello. My name is Matt Gone. I have been an attraction at Tattoo Conventions in 30+ Countries and I am the new International Contributor to World Tattoo Events. I travel to 14 - 18 Tattoo Conventions in 13 - 15 different countries a year. I am 99% Tattooed with a Checkered look. My eyes, and tongue are tattooed. I have tattoos inside my throat, inside my eyelids, and more internal tattoos than anyone in history. 140 people have tattooed me. Many famous legends. I am living Tattoo History. Many of you have seen me in the media. I have been in the Tattoo Media regularly for 32 years. I have a Guinness World Record for my Checkered Bodysuit. Ripley's Believe it or Not! Venice Beach Freakshow, Caso Cerrado, Telemundo, RTL Television, CNN, La Show De Recordi in Europe, International Advertising, TV shows, 1000's of newspapers, Internet news-media, and more. My story is simple. I am Tattooed for medical reasons. I have a rare birth defect called Poland's Syndrome. My tattoos hide very serious birth defects,missing muscles, surgery scars, and other medical problems. My Tattoos help me enjoy my body through a lifetime of pain, surgeries, and medical problems. I now have a very slow type of kidney disease, and only 1 kidney. I have other medical issues too and I am partially disabled. With all my body problems, I am still one of the most popular Tattooed Attractions in the World. I have been on more Tattoo Posters on World Tattoo Events than anyone over the past 5 years. I have a very large group of International Fans as well. I will be taking photos and writing reviews at the Tattoo Conventions I work at. I do Modeling, TV programs in many countries, and other projects. Look forward to many articles about my last 32 years around Tattoo Culture. I am also the International Representative of Dermal-Source. We are a Tattoo Supply company with a specialty in Cosmetic, Medical, and Specialty Tattoo Supply needs. My face was tattooed by Mary Jane Haake. She was Bert Grimm's last Apprentice. A pioneer in the fields of Cosmetic & Medical Tattooing.
