Shawn,
Thank you for giving me one of the most special tattoos for my oldest daughter that included a special "shadow" butterfly for her sister who passed away. You were close to my husband and my older daughter loved saying "hi" to you on walks. You were one of the most kindest, caring, go with the flow kind of people I've ever met. I know the angels are with and know Caleb and Aiden have an extra protector with them for life. My family will miss you so much, thank you for all the long talks and just being who you are a genuinely big hearted person.
Rest easy my friend, til we meet again. Love Joe & Debbie Cordeiro

I went to get my first tattoo and you remembered me from when we were younger, I returned for more of your amazing art work. or just to stop in for a quick visit that would turn into hours, I enjoyed your stories and humor, you could always make me smile, one of my first dates with my now wife, was bringing her to see you for her first tattoo, and we were both happy that you took time out of your busy schedule to attend our wedding, I love you my friend you will be greatly missed.

Shawn one of the happiest days of my life was when I went to go get my first tattoo from you. I was with my boyfriend, who is now my husband. On one of our first dates, and your art work brought us closer because you had tattooed him and I decided that I needed to go to you to get my first one done. I will never forget you and will miss you!

Louise and family, I cannot even imagine how you feel. So many losses in such little time. But to lose a child, there is no greater pain than that. May God gray you peace. I’m glad I New Shawn. He left his mark on both of my kids. Words can never say I feel your pain. God bless and we love you.

Shawn was bigger than life, a good caring soul. He was so good to my granddaughter, Savannah, loved teasing each other. She, along with all of us at The Shining Star will miss him terribly.

One of the best evenings I ever had was the evening Shawn did my first tattoo. Not only was he talented but he was gracious, patient, and fun. The artwork he did on me has always been special, even more so now. My sincere sympathies are with you in this time of loss.
