Condolences – Comments And Tributes
“I first met Ivan before he and Lisa married, he later became a Son-in-Law to my very dear friend Mila. I have to admit I was a little taken aback having never seen so many tattoos on one person,. That feeling changed as I got to know the man beneath the long hair and tattoos, he turned out to be one of the kindest, most gentle men I’ve known. Goes to show you never judge a book by its cover. RIP Ivan, you will be missed by many.”
“Wish i wouldn’t had the nerve to get a tattoo done IVAN said it would be a honour to do it for me but…..R.I.P.”
“6 days ago this work of art came up on my memories, 14 years ago upon my return from Afghanistan Ivan worked past closing of the shop to ensure I walked out with a perfectly finished tattoo. To this day I cherish this piece. RIP”
“I feel blessed to have had Ivan do my first tattoo… and my second.
This one was my first. We did it all in one sitting and of course Ivan had many stories to share during that time. I remember going in saying, “It’s my first tattoo – so I’m thinking to have it done on my wrist, nothing too big in case it hurts and I chicken out”. Ivan quickly said, “That will look like crap in a few years, how do you feel about going bigger?” He was confident that I could handle it. Go big or go home, right? So we did. I still love this tattoo as much as the day I got it, maybe even more.
Rest in peace, Ivan”
