Matt Heafy Tattoo Sighting at SXSW 2012

Snapped a picture with Matt Heafy from Trivium. I met Matt inside The Jr in Austin during SWSX 2012. He was a really cool guy. I was there to watch Trivium before I caught Skrillex Live. That night I also met Corey Beaulieu. He was also a delight.

Matt Heafy Tattoo

As you can see from the picture, Matt has many tattoos with some great work. All his work blends well together. In 2015, Matt created quite a buzz on the internet from the tattoos that are not visible in the above picture.

Only Matt Heafy’s wife knows if the front matches the back. You can catch a video I recorded that night of Trivium performing Built to Fall. The song kicks in at about 1 minute and 19 seconds.

Matt Heafy Signature Guitar

Matt Heafy has a couple of signature guitars. If you’re familar with the Matt Heafy signature guitar, you know it’s got some great accessability to the higher strings. I played one at Guitar Center and it rocks. These custom Epiphone’s are based on Matt’s Gibson Les Paul custom from when he was 12 years old. Matt called it a labor of love making the guitars and they were rigorously on the road with Trivium.
