Dave Navarro Paints Portrait Of Late Mother In His Own Blood

Written by Mike Hohnen on June 4, 2013

Dave Navarro has now done the most ‘Dave Navarro’ thing you could ever possibly do. In a tribute to his deceased mother, the legendary musician has bled from a cut to his forehead into a wine glass, with the blood then being used to immortalise an image of his mother. What’s more the whole thing was done in the middle of the Californian desert.

This isn’t the sort of thing you do on your own without proper supervision so Navarro hit up artists and body modification experts Samppa Von Cyborg and Aneta Von Cyborg to help with the project. The whole thing was documented in a series of photos which you can check out below.

But, yes – there’s a lot of blood. If you’re reading this, it means you’re most likely a fan of Navarro’s previous escapades and have a strong stomach.

Constance Navarro was killed by a boyfriend in 1983, when her son was just 15 years old. The case was heavily documented on America’s Most Wanted. Her killer, John Riccardi, spent years on the run but was eventually caught, just managing to escape the death penalty.
