Fukitt Clothing | DC Tattoo Expo 2018

Last weekend we kicked off our 2018 pop up shop season at the DC Tattoo Convention. I believe this was our 5th time at this show and it's always a great way to start off the year! Filled with friends we haven't seen in a few months, yet seemed like yesterday, was so good to see them all.

So many things changed with people and businesses, but everyone was still the same! As usual, we got there, unloaded and set up, and then checked into our room. Upgraded to a huge suite for free, I knew this was going to be a great weekend!

Dave Mirra Fukitt Clothing Apparel Suicide Prevention

It has come to my attention that a World Famous BMX athlete, 24 time X Games medalist, MTV host, husband and father of 2,  Dave Mirra was found dead, by way of suicide, at the young age of 41.

This story has sparked a few negative comments after we posted about it on our Facebook page. People were commenting that they "don't feel badly for him and he couldn't have lived 10 days in their shoes", "what could he possibly be so depressed about, he had everything, money, fame, etc"?

Just because it looks to the World on the outside that someone's life is amazing, we never truly will ever know what happens or had happened behind closed doors to spark some series of depression or sadness. I find it hard to believe that people nowadays, would dare to compare their lives to someone else's and say that one person could never walk a mile in their shoes. It's just ridiculous to me.
