R.I.P. Thom DeVita 1932-2018

We are deeply saddened to know that Thom DeVita passed away. He was one of the most unique American tattooers and artists. Manhattan native, he was born in 1932 and opened his first shop in 1961, in New York City’s Lower East Side.

He had been tattooing and creating art for almost 50 years.

Our deepest condoleances go to his family and friends.

The tattoo world loses an amazing artist and a great man. He will be truly missed.
