Gus Kenworthy and his longtime boyfriend Matt Wilkas commemorated their dog Beemo with a pair of matching tattoos.
Kenworthy shared the couple’s new ink along with a heartfelt message about Beemo, who unexpectedly passed away earlier this year.
Like everybody, my year had a lot of ups-and-downs. One of my biggest highlights came while I was in Korea. Just being there, competing in my second Winter Olympics (this time out and proud), was a highlight in and of itself but moreso than that was what happened the day after I competed. Matt and I had a gut-wrenching visit to a dog meat farm where we meet and adopted our first dog, Beemo and also witnessed the birth of our other pup, Birdie. Although our time with Beemo was short she changed our lives and stole our hearts. After her unexpected passing we pledged that we would get tattoos in her honor. I brought Matt to London for New Year’s and surprised him with appointments for us to finally get our tattoos done by a really talented artist that I love, @nichlashaldtattoo! Nic is the sweetest and the cutest – definitely check him out! I couldn’t be happier with how the portraits turned out and I am immensely proud to have a little bit of Beemo living on with us forever!
Here’s the result:
