Our hearts are hurting for Ink Master's sweetheart, Julia Carlson. The season 5 contestant lost her husband Albert unexpectedly and now she's on a mission to get him a headstone for his grave.
"It pains me every time my children ask when their daddy's headstone will be here," Carlson wrote in an Instagram post. Carlson has two adorable boys and a stepdaughter that are missing their dad and wondering where his headstone is. It is truly heartbreaking.
We asked Julia about her situation, and her words say it all. "His passing was so sudden, he was only thirty years old, and he touched the lives of so many people," Carlson says. "He inspired so many young BMX riders in the community, I just want to be able to give him something beautiful so that his children can remember him for the amazing and talented man he was. I'm on a mission, I don't want him to be forgotten."
More than anything we want to make sure that Albert gets a headstone to commemorate his life, and we know that the tight-knit tattoo community would love to pitch in any way they can. If you're able to donate or share the GoFundMe page, click this link and make it happen.
We love you Julia! Our thoughts are with you!
