Many of you don’t know me personally, but on the other side of furry, I’m a tattoo artist.
I closed my shop back in September because our landlord was not fixing things in the shop (we went without heat last year up until a week before Christmas and this is in Illinois, then in the summer he didn’t fix the AC until the DAY I put our end of tenancy letter in the mail), and I paid an outrageous rent for such a lack of services, as well as our monthly utility bills of $600 or more. Moving put us in a rough spot, but it had to be done. So we decided to move the shop to a town more convenient for the bulk of my clients. We’ve found a great building and rent that is crazy inexpensive (less than 1/4 of my rent in the old building!!), so we are pretty psyched about getting everything going again.
The problem is, we need 5k to renovate the building to satisfy health codes for body art, so we started a fundraiser. If you want to get an awesome t-shirt and are up for helping support our business, here is the link to our fundraising page. The art was done by me, and it is an exclusive shirt. After the fundraiser ends, it will not be available. We have to sell 50 shirts before they will start printing and shipping them.
If you could spread the word too, I would mighty appreciate it. I need to get back to work doing what I know best and get back to supporting my family. My daughter is going to college in June, and we want to have everything stable so we can send her money and take care of her needs.
Go get yourself a pretty sweet looking shirt, and help out an awesome person at the same time! :D It’s a win win!
