His tattoo project was completed in 2008. His full body tattooing has been featured on the cover of magazines such as LA Times, Skin & Ink, Skin Deep, Savage, Cheri, and Bizarre.

You may have seen him on networks such as The discovery Channel and on programs like Medical Incredible and Ripley’s television show.
Matt Gone was born with a rare birth defect called Poland Syndome which causes undeveloped or absent muscles on one side of the body. He began tattooing himself in an attempt to be proud of his body instead of hating it. Matt uses his tattooed image to raise awareness to the public about Poland Syndrome.
