As you’ve probably heard by now an earthquake hit Christchurch, New Zealand yesterday. Among those who lost their lives was tattoo artist Matti Makeekan from Southern Ink. Details haven’t been made clear, but I’ve been told he was at the studio when portions of the building collapsed. Our thoughts are with the Makeekan family, and all those affected by this tragedy.
