As Dwayne Haskins’ wife Kalabrya continues to mourn the shocking loss of her husband, she is also honoring him with a permanent reminder of him in the form of a new sleeve of tattoos.
Over the weekend, Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins revealed the new ink in a series of photographs posted to her Instagram account.
Captioning the post, “wearing my heart on my sleeve,” Kalabrya shared her inspiration for the new tattoo sleeve.
The largest tattoo is the image of her late husband’s face which covers most of her left shoulder. The other tattoos included copies of some personal notes that Dwayne Haskins wrote to him while he was alive.
“Your [sic] my sunshine when it rains,” one note read. “I want you in this life and the next. I like You.”
Another note she had inked on her arm read, “To my flower, thank you for your patience. I know I’m not perfect but I see the perfection in you every time I look you in the eye. Being your husband is my greatest blessing. You make me complete, I couldn’t live without you. Every day I will show you that I love you because you love me very much. I thank God for you!
She also got one of Haskins’ signatures tattooed on her arm.
Dwayne Haskins’ wife also honored her late husband on what would have been his birthday
Last week, May 3, Haskins would have turned 25. That day, Kalabrya wrote on social media, “King Wayne, God has decided that Simba needs a halo, instead of a crown for your mane. Life without you here brings so much pain. But today we celebrate your 25th reign. Your light was so bright that words wouldn’t be enough to explain it… How proud I am of the man you have become. Humbled to experience the angel heaven has just won. My twin flame. I swear to always honor your name. Until we come together again after this life, your soul mate, your lover and your best friend. Xoxo, Cleo.
Kalabrya and the late Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback wed in 2021. Haskins’ parents revealed ahead of their son’s funeral that they would not attend because they had never met or spoken to her and “did not want our son’s funeral service to be the place where we first met her,” they said in a statement.
Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins has been charged with assault and battery for domestic violence after allegedly attacking Dwayne in July 2021. Police reported she caused injuries to Haskins that were “substantial in nature,” including a split lip that needed stitches and, according to the police report, he “would most definitely need dental work to fix his teeth.”
The charges were eventually dropped.
