RIP Marty Stitches

Recommended Posts

I lost a friend over the weekend. Marty was brilliant and he was also a mess. He told stories that were almost never true, but he also had a kind and empathetic heart. When he listened to you, you knew he was listening. Not sure why I am posting it here...some sort of memento mori, or epitaph? Not sure, I just wanted to let the world know that I loved my friend.

I should also mention, Marty was an apprentice for a short time. He put some of the shittiest tattoos on himself, which, if you knew him, was just his style.

He also had some of the oldest Brian Bruno tattoos I had ever seen on his legs. Sigh.

It's funny. They leave out so much. So much of the crazy shit we did when we were 23 years old. The stupid hardcore bands. The stupid drugs. The stupid nights getting shit-faced on the worst malt-liquor. And repeating it every night over a summer when you had a shit job and you weren't worried about anything else. But, I suppose, it really wasn't stupid at all when you were having fun.

My best friend who lives 10 hours away was over for a rare visit the other night...we've known each other for 25 years. Most of the conversation centered on the ages of 22-24 when we were just raging. Sorry to hear about your loss.

    • Hi, I just joined to get tattoo ideas and also feedback on my current tattoo cover-up. Thanks 🙂
    • Hi everyone... sorry, I thought I'd posted here earlier. I've found this site a few times over the last year searching various topics. I've never traveled and tattooed... so I would like to.  I feel like I'm still practicing right now... I feel like I'm getting close to figuring out my own styles. I kind of just try to do my best at tattooing whatever people want.  I just want to get better at it.  
    • Just butting in... read the thread, and I couldn't really understand how you got from the inspiration images to an eagle... but it looks nice and clean. Forget the olive branch... that's just complicating the tattoo... once the clouds are in there and everything is shaded it will look impressive. Trying to change or modify the design when the agreed upon plan is in progress never ends well. I'd vote for black and grey or black grey and grey-blue... but that might change after seeing the artist's portfolio. Trust your artist... it looks like you chose the right person for your project so far.
