M. Shadows tattoo

Because Matt likes the biblical story of the four horseman he decided to have a sleeve created for his left arm. He thought that the horses with their muscles would look really cool. He calls it Sleepy Hollow meets the bible. The sleeve was completed during the recording of "Avenged Sevenfold" the album.

Matt's first tattoo was of the logo for the band H2O. They are the first punk band he really liked. It is located on his lower leg. He got the tattoo when he was 14 years old. His parents found out about it when he was in the 8th grade. They were not happy at the time but now they don't care. His second tattoo was of a heart  with flames around it and in the middle of the heart are the words "True till death". He got that tattoo when he was 15 years old.

Synyster Gates

Brian Elwin Haner, Jr. (July 7, 1981), better known by his stage name Synyster Gates or simply Syn, is an American musician, best known for being the lead guitarist of the metal band Avenged Sevenfold.

Gates became the band's official lead guitarist. After Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, the band has released 4 studio albums: Waking the Fallen, City of Evil, Avenged Sevenfold, Nightmare and a live DVD/CD Live in the LBC & Diamonds in the Rough.

He has won numerous awards, including the 2006 Metal Hammer "Young Shredder" award and the 2006 Total Guitar Magazine "Guitarist of the Year."

In Revolver magazine, the Avenged Sevenfold special edition that was released the same day as the Nightmare album, Gates stated that he originally started out writing the song "So Far Away" in honor of his grandfather, it later on became to also honor his late bandmate The Rev as well.

On April 20, 2011, Gates won the Revolver Golden God award for Best Guitar along with band mate, Zacky Vengeance. Avenged Sevenfold picked up numerous other awards and delivered the headlining performance of the night.

"I got this piece of work on my upper right shoulder by Adam Barton. He really wanted for some reason that the tree would start to have flame like branches. We always kinda joke about it. It was funny at the time. It was supposed to be something about the Raven, Egar Allen Poe."-Johnny Christ-

Johnny has modern day monsters on his left sleeve consisting of Jason, Chucky, Freddie, and more.

Zacky Vengeance tattoo

Zacky has an A behind his ear because he agreed to get it when Brian lost a bet with Matt that the Angels couldn't make a comeback in the World Series.

"Tattoos can motivate in all sorts of ways.

"Tattoos can hide and make me look as buff as I do now. I got muscles tattooed on my muscles.

"I've always wanted to get tattoos. I wanted to be the guy driving around in the nice car people always looked down on but was actually successful. Yeah just make a stand. So they can't be looked down on anymore."-Zacky V.-
