And That Shit’s Permanent
Matt Heinz is a professional tattoo artist, which isn’t a part-time job, or even a full-time job. It’s a full-time life—much like long hair, which Matt has, so you could say he’s working overtime.
Matt’s specialty is illustrated color tattoos with concepts inspired by medieval fantasy art, European black metal, neo-traditional, Japanese and video game illustrations. His favorite subject matter includes witches, wizards, skeletons, suits of armor, weapons, women’s faces, animals, floral designs, and anything in the realm of the mysterious and provocative.
He is also the artist who masterfully applied a virtually perfect rendition of the bound shears on Sam’s upper shoulder in permanent black ink, a piece he remembers with reverence. You can still find out why Sam did it on The Longhairs podcast.
Having been neighbors on Kettner Boulevard dating back to the founding days of The Longhairs, we were especially thrilled to invite professional tattoo artist Matt Heinz on Let It Ride.
