It’s been six months since Cameron Boyce tragically passed away, and now, his former Jessie costar will have a piece of him permanently inked onto his skin forever. Karan Brar just got a tattoo honoring the late Disney star, and fans are seriously touched by the tribute.
The actor got the outline of a photo of him and Cameron tattooed onto his shoulder, with the words, “Your partner in crime, Cam,” written right below it in the Descendants star’s handwriting. Karan shared a snap of the emotional new body art to Instagram on Sunday, January 12.
“A photo of Cam and I the day before his 19th birthday and part of a letter he wrote to me on my 15th birthday,” the 20-year-old captioned it.
As fans know, Cameron was only 20 years old when he died on July 6, 2019, after having a seizure in his sleep. He suffered from a medical condition called epilepsy, and his fans, costars, friends and family are still heartbroken over the tragic loss.
“You were the greatest thing to have ever happened to me. I love you so much Cam. Wish I had more to say right now but I don’t think words will come for a while,” Karan wrote on Instagram a few days after Cameron’s devastating death. “Thank you to everyone who sent such kind words my way. Know I haven’t been responding but it truly means a lot.”

Back in December, the actor’s parents opened up about his sad passing.
“His cause of death was Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy,” Cameron’s dad, Victor, explained to NBCLA, with his mom, Libby, adding that SUDEP is when “people pass away from an epileptic seizure and they’re otherwise healthy. There’s no preexisting condition.”
“We didn’t know anything about SUDEP until the medical examiner who did the autopsy on our son told us what it was,” she continued. “There’s not enough education out there about epilepsy and there’s not enough research. We feel it’s really important and that he would want us to be getting this information out to the public and helping others.”
