Larry Da Leopard death, obituary: Lance Brieschke death
Larry had begun getting leopard tattoos at age 20 – a decision borne out of a desire to subvert society’s expectations. Five years later, he inked his face with the distinctive spots.
Larry recalled that when his parents first caught sight of the spots on his body, they wept.
For the next decade, Larry had little contact with his family, feeling hurt that they had failed to embrace his brand of self-expression and shunned him for desecrating his body.
‘It took them ten years to come round but now we’ve got a better relationship,’ he said. ‘They can see I’m doing alright for myself.’
As for the rest of the world’s reaction to his spots, tattoo artist Larry da leopard was barred from entering diners and even accused of being the devil.
