Last week the world lost a great tattooer, friend to many, father and husband. I met @mikefite around five years ago and I’ll never forget the time we spent together. Besides helping me shoot a pilot for a show I was pitching, Mike laid down a tuff tattoo on me that I’ll always wear with pride. He said “I guarantee it til three days after you’re dead” ... He wasn’t so nice when he peppered over my shin bone with the whip shading... but I still love him for the person and tattooer he was. .
Now, Mike’s family could use a little help and there’s a gofundme page setup to raise some funds to help them deal with the loss. If you can find it in your heart to lend a helping hand, please head over and drop a couple bucks in the ol’ piggy bank. Also, there’s @mike_fite_paint_auction where you’ll be able to bid on artwork, @matthew_houston designed some t-shirts ... there are tons of ways to help. .
Being a father myself, it saddens me to think about how hard it must be for his family to cope with such a sudden loss. #mikefite #mikefiteforever #morefuckingblack
