In memoriam - Steve Martin

In memoriam - Steve Martin

Steve Martin 11.21.82 - 5.29.16

It is with extremely heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our friend and brother, Steve Martin. From the first day we opened our doors in 2008, Steve gave this business, his craft, and all of his clients so much on a daily basis. It’s been a pleasure to watch him grow as an artist, father, husband and friend over the last eight years. While he left us too soon, we’re grateful to have shared so many experiences with him and he will always be a tremendous part of Black 13 Tattoo.

Steve, we love you and we’ll miss you, always. We’ll continue to gain inspiration from you and band together as a family in your absence.
