"While his life was cut short, in that time, he left a legacy behind in both the art and tattoo world," they continued, "He loved his many fans, his friends and clients, and most of all his children."

"He’ll be missed and always remembered," the family wrote before concluding with some hashtags, "A legend forever. #rip #f—cancer."
