ANNOUNCEMENT: As many of you know I'm trying to open a queer and poc-centric tattoo shop, with space available for guest artists and fellow freaks from other places. However. On paper, I'm 22, I've been tattooing less than a year, I have no credit history and no business experience. I know that my work is good enough and that me and my team are FULLY capable of making this happen, and of creating a safe space for both our clients and fellow artists for years to come. We need help though. Because of how we look on paper we're paying three times more for things like a down payment and insurance. I've been putting a huge portion of my income right back into @sticks.stonestattoo pretty much since day one. If you can contribute to our GoFundMe, consider it, if not, please share! http://ift.tt/2ekt6rx . . . . . #queertattoo #qttr #queersafespace #nonbinary #qtpoc #tattooyvr #yvrtattoo #vancouvertattoo #vancitytattoo #feministtattoo #qtpocspaces #blackwork #vancity #eastvan #eastvantattoo
