Mike Tschirn, dedicated father, husband, artist, musician, and friend passed away on July 2, 2016 after more than a year-long battle with pancreatic cancer. A warm, generous presence in the Fredericksburg arts community, he was best known as a tattoo artist at Jack Brown’s Tattoo Revival and for his performances in punk bands like The Crypts. Featured on the cover is his signature “mighty buffalo” tattoo. A memorial fund has been set up on Indiegogo for his surviving wife and two children. To donate, visit igg.me/at/5yweSTxDyX4.
