The Designs and Art of Matt Gone Expressed in Tattoos

Since 1990 Matt Gone has tattooed over 98 percent of his body. The result is an elaborate, full body design with a central checkerboard theme. He has many fantastic creatures and scenes on his body and his chakras are individually marked. Only the soles of his feet remain untouched.

The pictures on the mattgone website show the entire bodysuit in great detail with the tattooed private parts in a special adult gallery. Matt insists they are part of the central design of the bodysuit.

I agree.

Mr. Gone has a compelling personal story and clearly takes his art seriously enough to use his body as the canvas.
