STICK remembers vets for 4th
The staff at STICK Tattoo always appreciates the opportunity to work with vets in the community. “Tattooing the free, thanks to the brave,” is the motto in the shop these days, especially on such an important commemorative weekend like celebrating our country’s independence.
“As a vet myself, its an honor to work with my colleagues on their military-themed art,” said Andrew Packard, STICK Tattoo artist. “It’s nice to know that sharing my talent can mean so much to those who have sacrificed so much.”
Cpl. Christopher Morris, U.S. Marine Corps Retired and head of the WVU Veterans Association, was on the receiving end of Packard’s talent when he chose to get his own military-themed tattoo. Having just lost two fellow and soldiers and close friends to suicide, he wanted to do something that would serve as a reminder – of his experiences and of the good still waiting for him.
“It was almost like once I got my tattoo, everything started getting better for me,” Morris said. “It’s symbolic and I felt like I was finally starting to get out of a bad place.”
STICK Tattoo is closed for the 4th but is booking appointments and loves inking vets. For more information, contact the shop at 304.212.5543.
