Last week the tattooing world lost a legend and beloved friend, Xed Lehead. Quentin had the honour of being with him as he passed onto his next journey, there is a hole in his heart, and in the hearts of everyone who had the pleasure of knowing and meeting Xed. His love goes out to Wiggy, Johnny, Kaz, all his friends that were by his side and to those that couldn't make it.
Not only was he the dotfather, he was a beautiful person and the world is an emptier place without him
Xed once posted this quote on his birthday, we thought it was a great way of showing how Xed viewed life and to remind those of us who are still here on earth to explore, create and enjoy as you only get one life you should do what makes you happy.
“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!”
― Hunter S. Thompson, The Proud Highway: Saga of a Desperate Southern Gentleman, 1955-1967
Rest in peace Xed, we all love you.
