Matt Arriola: Uncommon Asshole

Recommended Posts

Check out this short video on one of my favorite tattooers (featuring another favorite, Bob Roberts):

I've said before that Matt has a bit of a Big Liebowski vibe, but now I realize that that comes across as a bit unkind (or at the very least, sells him short). He's both passionate and compassionate, and that comes through in this piece.

Thanks for sharing Ross. I credit you for putting me on to Matt. He's on my short list of tattooers I need to visit.

Do it! I'm pretty sure he's a regular at the SOG convention, if the I5 is too daunting. ;)

Oh totally. I'm fully aware. He's definitely part of the plan. Just going in order of said plans. He guest spots up here from time to time too.

ahh... i know the pain of plans. as i think of it, i would vote to brave the 5 and have the Spotlight experience.

I'm only going to Spotlight when I have a pretty lady to tag along. I know Mr Bob Roberts loves the pretty ladies, as do I.

And when I do go to Spotlight, the goal is to walk out with two tattoos. One from Matt and one from Bob.

i'm sure you can find one on melrose... or hire one! hahahaha. that just adds to the tattoo cost tho.

Never realized how much he looks like David Duchovny. I have an issue of TAM that he has an interview in and I enjoyed the read as much as the video. Thanks for posting.

Shout out to @heathenist, his tattoo at 1:59.

Matt's easily one of my favourite people I've met through tattooing.

I'm so happy that this video exists and highlights what a rad dude and amazing tattooer he is.

He's definitely a unique / entertaining character, but I'm proud to call him a friend.

Great video, thanks for sharing.

@heathenist I can't imagine how honored you are to have that Jesus tattoo. Every time I see it, I'm pumped.

For sure. It's kind of ashame it's on the back of my thigh and I don't get to see it that often.

I credit you too for putting me onto Matt. You were the straw that broke the camel's back.

haha guys I felt like he was in a group of many good tattooers on west coast until I saw @hogg getting a tattoo from him and it was pure badass. He made my relatively short list(6) when time came to book a chest eagle. I will definitely try to book with him at some point.

edit watched video and yeah cool stuff good vibe

hogg's guest on livedintattoos had me realize yesterday that I had not been following Matt on Instagram. I fixed that.

Yeah, man. Gotta keep your eyes on that dude. Everything he does is so damn cool.

    • Hi I have a question about numbing creams last time I have had a first session on my whole belly I just couldn't withstand the pain I did not manage the whole session so I did a little bit of research how to help myself and found some info about the creams. The concern is that they last only about a hour which is not what I want for a whole session and those based on water are not recommended to reapply during long sessions. I still have about a full session to get mine finish so I really need an advice.Can you apply first layer in middle of the session? I'm thinking to start without anything and after couple of hours of tattooing when the pain is unbearable to apply a cream on areas that has been just tattooed and still needs to be finished. Can someone recommend tried good creams. Many thanks.
    • It really is shocking, concerning and, sadly, I feel like I don't I have much to add. 😞
    • I have no idea. I feel like maybe people who never would have gotten tattoos are getting them now because they are more mainstream, but then they appear to suddenly realize it is permanent? I don't know, but it feels like 90% of newbies come here to talk about their anxiety over a new tattoo. Sigh.
