Sad News About World Famous BMX Athlete, Dave Mirra

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"? It takes me back to when we all heard Robin Williams took his own life.  Just because it looks to the World on the outside that someone's life is amazing,...

Getting Through a Challenging Time

Every once and a while, we meet someone who is trying to work through something. Something that seems so surreal, none of us can even think about going through. This something in particular, I cannot disclose, however, I can tell you that it is nothing like any story I've heard before. When someone is forced into a situation, beyond their control and they have to literally make a life or death decision, in a split second, their life and their families lives are forever changed. When we met, it was through a mutual friend, and they just stopped by the booth just to say hello. After speaking with them, and telling them what our brand was about and what and...

Back in the Swing of Things

It feels like forever, and then again, like just yesterday when we vended at the last convention of the year before the hiatus of Christmas time. We have one more weekend off until we are on our way to the DC Tattoo Convention where we will get to see our extended family of friends and supporters who we haven't seen in a few months. Exciting times! While the little break was good for the mind, body and soul, allowing us to recuperate and prepare for the new season, it will be good to be back at the grind and getting our new gear out there to the public and see what's in store for us this year!

A Weekend Full of Inspiration

This past weekend we were at the third annual Tommy's Tattoo Convention (http://www.tommystattooconvention.com/) in Hartford, CT. Only a 3 hour ride from home, Connecticut welcomed us with open arms and lots of love, stories of inspiration, hope, and dreams. As the norm, we get there bright and early in the morning, set up and the show begins, except this time, we had time to check into the hotel and take a much needed nap before the festivities began! Thank goodness, as we both needed the quick nap! Feeling refreshed, we are ready to go inspire new and old fans with our message! And boy did we! We were met with our friends in the tattoo industry who have become...

Two Great Events Last Weekend

This past weekend, Fukitt Clothing took part in not only one, but two great tattoo conventions, one being in Long Island and the other at the Meadowlands. Needless to say it was hectic and busy and fun all the same.  I personally wasn't at the show in Long Island but Reena, my sister in law, and Ryan went to handle it.  And handle it, they did! They were met with dozens of supporters, friends, who are family to us now, and fans from past years.  We heard so many interesting stories.
