Days and months after Marcus' accident a few of his friends had tattoos done in his memory. A huge back piece of a dragon, was just among the few. Brandon was only 16 when he had his tattoo done, with his mother's consent of course. It was done by his cousin, who happens to be a tattoo artist. Three of his closest buds from Dallas Academy, Josh H., Bobby C. and Josh T. and a childhood friend Tony K., all got the same exact design. It is of a dragon with the inscription R.I.P. MPAM 2-22-09. Josh T. had his done on his right forearm. Tony K. had his done on his right lower leg. Josh H. had his done on his left pectoral muscle. Bobby C. had his done on his right bicep. Yet another friend from DA, Libby A. had her tattoo done of a piece of clothing Marcus was rarely seen without it on. His almost signature white Hurley baseball cap.
Brandon's back tattoo. The dedication says "Those who I've lost are never forgotten." He got this months after Marcus' accident. It is dedicated to Brandon's Grandmother and Marcus. The dragon was inspired by Marcus' fascination with dragons.
Two of Marcus' closest friends from Dallas Academy. On the left is Josh H. He had his done the week of Marcus' accident. On the right is Bobby C. He had his done months after the accident.
Libby A.'s tattoo is of Marcus' trademark hat. A white Hurley hat.
Rest in Peace, Marcus Patrick Allan Manny.
