Art that adorns the flesh…

Funeral for a Friend

June 23rd, 2011 by

For anyone out there who was a fan or at the very least familiar with the Jackass crew and their films, this week was a sad one.  34-year-old Ryan Dunn (one of my personal favourites of the Jackass dudes), died in a car crash after he apparently lost control of his Porsche 911 GT3.  Dunn was intoxicated at the time and police estimate that prior to the crash, he had been driving his car at speeds upwards of 130mph.

Dunn leaves behind a close knit group of family and friends, so it really comes as no surprise that one of the Jackass crew has already been tattooed with a memorial tattoo for Ryan.  Jason “Wee-Man” Acuna linked this video on his twitter account yesterday of him being tattooed on his leg with a portrait of Dunn.  The art work came out pretty sweet, if I do say so myself and it’s a touching way to memoralise Acuna’s late friend.

Given the degree to which many of the Jackass guys are tattooed, I think we can all rest assured that Acuna won’t be the last one to get a Ryan Dunn memorial tattoo.  In the meantime, my thoughts are with the Dunn family and Ryan’s friends.  R.I.P. Ryan.
