Matt Stebly | Mapping a Modern MS
Monday, October 10, 2016
Matt Stebly is a tattoo artist in Ocean Springs, Mississippi. He recently relocated Twisted Anchor Tattoo to the heart of Downtown Ocean Springs. Although he began a business that dared to differ, his roots run deep into the heart of the history in Ocean Springs. As Walter Anderson’s great-grandson, Matt has a rich heritage in the artistic community of Mississippi.
“If Ocean Springs is known for being an art community, you should have a tattoo shop of that caliber that I want to have in Ocean Springs. I’ve tattooed eighty year old ladies that have always wanted a tattoo, but now feel like they can because it’s a little more acceptable. And people are actually seeing the art form of it.”-Matt
