Matty’s Facial Cutting and Suspension

It seems like a lot of the people writing me have had a rough 2007… I remember when 2007 started we had a number of unexpected deaths in this community and a few people remarked what a bad year they felt was upon us, and maybe they were right.

Matty definitely had that experience, so on the first day of 2008 he decided to shave his head and start afresh… He took this great B&W picture that day in his garden and shares it with us.

To help him get through the rough patch, in December he had the chance to do his first four point suicide suspension with the Hack Suspension Team in Canberra, Australia, and about a week later he had the wonderful experience of having Lukas Zpira do a facial cutting on him as part of Lukas’s workshop in Sydney, Australia.

There are some more pictures of his experiences after the break.

  1. Thank you all for the lovely comments :)….#7 The “QUACK” tattoo has a wonderful and deep story behind it and one day I will share when I get my iam account all back and working. It’s a fun piece with symbolism…and I do get a lot of comments from it…and all good! ;)

    The cutting represents a broken heart with 2 equal parts with a divide in the middle.

    And yes the cat is seriously cute and love her to bits.

    Thanks again

  2. Wicked, this lad took my passport photos haha! Smooth Skull. Canberra represent.

  3. i like the cutting, looks nice, simple and clean. hey just curious what size are those wood rings.

  4. In answer to # 12. The rings are 19.1mm and were purchased from Onetribe Organics. My ears are stretched to 30mm and these rings feel amazing…not too heavy either despite their size.
