Christopher Pebley aka Trigz Tattoo & Graffiti Artist Benefit

Trigz, a famed body piercing artist and tattoo artist whose distinctively tattooed face was seen in magazines and music videos, was fatally shot in North Hollywood last Thursday night.

The actor, model and member of the renowned Seventh Letter graffiti artist crew reportedly got into an altercation at or near a tattoo parlor when gunfire erupted.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department the attack happened about 5:50 p.m. at Victory and Laurel Canyon boulevards at the Black Derby Smoke Shop when a stranger made a passing remark that upset Pebley. The two men came to blows, and after about 30 seconds the fight spilled out onto the sidewalk and ended with the 'rude' smoke shop customer shooting the tattoo artist outside.

The shooter was described only as a man in his 30s who possibly got away in a white, early '90s Honda Accord, according to the LAPD.

Pebley had worked on his screen career appearing in movies including SWAT and music videos for a variety of artists including Mobb Deep, Travis Barker, Blink 182, Yelawolf, Aerosmith, Taylor Swift. He had also appeared in documentaries aired on the National Geographic channel.
