Something to remember him by.
Over the weekend, Jacy Nittolo, who was engaged to the late Ray Liotta prior to his sudden death in May, swung by famed West Hollywood tattoo parlor Shamrock Social Club to get new ink in tribute to the late actor. Renowned tattoo-artist Mark Mahoney, also the founder and owner of SSC, did the honors.
Nittolo’s son, the 21-year-old actor Chazz Nittolo, documented the process, and his mom ultimately shared a series of snaps to her Instagram on Saturday.
“Yesterday marked 3 months. It only seemed appropriate to do something meaningful that will forever be with me,” she captioned the slideshow.
“What an honor to have Mark Mahoneys gift do the work,” she added, also thanking actor pal Barbara Patrick for “a beautiful day” and Chazz for “capturing it.”

However, it appears that Nittolo has chosen to keep the fully finished inked-image under wraps for the time being, with the pics on her ‘gram only offering a fuzzy glimpse of what appears to be a realistically rendered feather on her forearm.
Nonetheless, many sympathetic commenters voiced their support for Nittolo’s on-skin in-memoriam.
“[S]o much love ♥️” wrote “Sweet Girl” star Isabela Merced, who had worked with Chazz on the 2020 music video “Apocalipsis.”
Back in December 2020, Liotta and Nittolo went public with the news that they had gotten engaged. But, on the evening of May 25, 2022, Liotta, then 67, went to sleep and never woke up. At the time, the “Goodfellas” star had been staying in the Dominican Republic while shooting the film “Dangerous Waters.”
Given the tragic series of events, it’s hardly a surprise that Kelly Rizzo — as the widow of the late Bob Saget — also took to the comments, seemingly very taken with the notion of a tattoo-as-memento.
“I’ll go with you anytime to get another one!!” she wrote in the comments of Nittolo’s post.
