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!

Heres 3 that have tattooed me recently (ish) and are selling stuff (I've put in orders to Elharper and Swearjar- Ben is doing Vans) - UK based of course.

And... Ive attached a 3 years (give or take a month) photo of one of my magpies by Mr Dunning  - just done on the right - today on the left - yes I know it's the wrong way round

Actually  - while none of us is getting tattooed - how about a pic of your favourite that you have had inked  (or favourites that you have had inked) and a link to Instagram for the artist  (or artists) what do you reckon?🙂

My appointments with Garver and Rubendall were cancelled. Blah. That being said, I do have a cool commission happening. 🙂

I had appointments on April 7th and 21st for my next half sleeve that were obviously canceled. That shop, and others around here, are offering discounted gift cards. I bought a $100 gift card towards my eventual appointment for $85. When they get more sweatshirts in, I will be ordering one of those as well.
