Your favorite shop & COVID-19

Recommended Posts

I follow quite a few local shops on social media along with others that I'd some day like to travel to and in the last week I'm seeing a reoccurring theme.  The lock down of tattoo shops in many states is quickly causing financial problems for the shop owners and tattooers.  Many are selling merch and paintings or prints and offering to do commissioned artwork.  The shop that I've gone to the most is selling gift cards to carry them thru this lean times.

I realize many collectors are also laid off or facing reduced hours, but if you are in a position to help consider throwing a little something their way.  It'd be a shame to lose a bunch of good shops and artists that we'll be wanting and needing when this whole nightmare is over.

yep, I feel bad for these tattooers. they are all closed here too. plus all the ones we all follow & know around the planet.

I am very fortunate to have an "essential" job here in probation, and my wife is retired so she is good at home.

I commissioned this from Yoni Zilber!

Just saw it reposted on a new page called Tattoo Love Care, https://www.instagram.com/ttt_l_c/, created by @blackclaw @tttism @zacscheinbaum. Their description is "Aid-Promote-Educate. A place to help tattooers in need and discover new artists, causes and events."

Check it out!

    • I have 12 tattoos and my last few have healed so badly that I am reluctant to get anymore done. I stick to the healing routine everytime using mild anti bacterial wash 2/3 times a day, make sure it is dry before I add a pure moisturiser. I used to use bepanthan but no matter how well I air dried it, it still gunks up. I then tried just coconut oil which is better but im still not healing well. My last 5 tattoos have been colour and I'm wondering if this may be the issue. So desperate to find a reason for it as I absolutely love my tattoos and have so many more I have spent a lot of time designing that I want done. Maybe I am destined to only get black fine line ones.  
    • I got this tattoo back in November. I had it touched up in mid-December from the same artist and it still looks like this. You can see on the “N” that it almost looks like my skin is coming through the ink on the right side. Is it time to get it touched up for a third time but by a different artist? The missed ink is very noticeable. Thanks for your help!
    • Yep. Where do you live?  Maybe we can steer you to a couple of quality options . . .
