Homage to Cliff Burton at Crazy Joe’s Tattoo Parlour

May 8, 2015

Cliff Burton was bass player for Metallica. He tragically died in 1986 when the band’s bus crashed whilst they were on tour in Sweden. Robert Kantor was born in the same year and has dedicated his arm as a shrine to his musical hero. I approached Crazy Joe’s Tattoo Parlour wishing to paint somebody being “inked” and this is what I¬†encountered. I found the whole scene quite moving.
