Devon Blood is a Bay Area tattooer, artist and skateboarder. In 2006, at the age of 26, he was the victim of a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head. Truly lucky to be alive, when he awoke from a medically induced coma weeks later, he found that he had lost precise muscle control on the right side of his body. In particular, he suffered severe muscle tremors in his right hand that put his burgeoning tattoo career in extreme jeopardy. In Pass The Bucket Episode 2 from Vans, Blood recalls the harrowing experience and how his life has changed since that night. Overcoming doubts of his doctors and therapists while surprising and inspiring everyone around him, he trained himself to use his left hand how he once used his right. He now paints, draws and tattoos left-handed.
