I remember driving up the 5 fwy from Highland Park around 2007 and seeing Trigz name up all the way up to the San Fernando Valley. I was impressed on the the amount of spots he had caught. From heaven bombs to landmark tags, Trigz was up. It wasn’t ’til later in 2008 when I finally met him. We met briefly at a party a mutual friend of my had invited me too. Very humble from the day we first met, Trigz always keep it real.
The the amount of work he put in the tattoo world and in the streets, Trigz gave is name value and launched his apparel line. Backside was one of the first shops to carry his t-shirts collection. His signature Los Angeles Tag T-shirt and West Coast tattoo script were a few of the first designs we carried. As we continued to build the relationship with Trigz, we pitched a collaboration t-shirt ‘Backside x Trigz’. We were able to develop a design for the collaboration, but we didn’t get a chance to finalize the final version. Trigz life taken on the evening of Thursday October 9th, 2014. The sad news was a big impact to the store. Backside will continue to push with the collaboration and donate all proceeds to his family.
