Tornadoes in North Carolina destroyed a good shop.

Recommended Posts


Performance Tattoos in Fayetteville, North Carolina was caught in the line of tornadoes that ripped through the state on Saturday, April 16th. The link above is to a video showing the devastation. This is a good, clean shop putting out high quality work in a military town that doesn't have many shops with a good work ethic and true art. I live about an hour from there in Raleigh and we are going to be trying to put together a fund raiser for them soon. However, I know how tight the tattoo community is and how easily this could happen anywhere, so I figured if anyone beyond the state could or would help, that would be awesome.
All of their disposables have been contaminated, the whole place is a wreck. Please stop by their facebook page Performance Tattoo | Facebook
Thanks everyone.

i lost my hole shop in a fire in december its a real kick in the ass, in the end the insurance payed after many sleepless nights waiting for a yes and a cheque .

while the builders rebuilt the shop i made good of the time off from drawing designs for customers and painted. spending time with the family and trying to not let it get you down is my only advise, thoughts go uot to you all.

    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.  
    • Hi there! So I just got two tattoos last night, one on top of each other. The one on the top seems pretty normal to me, it’s red and is a little uncomfortable like any other tattoo, but the one below that one is more red, has some bruising it looks like? The skin is tighter and it stings a little bit more than the one above it. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the placement, because maybe that one was more over worked than the other one? I know it is still very new and fresh, but my other tattoos have not reacted this way but I’m wondering if maybe because it’s in my arm? And the stinging feeling feels like sun burnish, but only on the bottom one. Does anyone have any advice for me??!
