Things are finally feeling back to normal at the shop after the break-in in May. To get you guys up to speed: they caught one of the guys with a portion of our stuff. Our computer and the majority of our machines are still floating around, but the outpouring of support has dulled the pain of lost photos and possessions.
The thank you list for everyone who reached out to show us love and support is about a mile long, but we'll try to keep it short. A HUGE THANKS to: Al's Bar, who hosted our benefit event; Rhinegeist and Arcadium who teamed up to donate a portion of their sales; Rachel Bryant, who set up a donation page; Third Street Stuff & Coffee and Wild Fig Books & Coffee who fed us the day of the break-in; Minton's who fed us that day, as well as catered our benefit event; Limestone Blue who donated a portion of their sales; to all the bands that played at our benefit free of charge; to Mikey T who helped Erin orchestrate the music end of our benefit; Lance Heilman and Jerielle Hanlon who donated their skills and artwork for auction; all of our friends who showed up to the benefit or donated to the shop; everyone who sent us messages of tattoo gear for sale; and lastly, to the countless tattooers and shops that offered us machines, supplies, and support while we were still reeling. I'm sure we're leaving some people out, but every bit of love received has been appreciated beyond words.
A month later, the shop doesn't feel as hectic and scrambled. We finally got a new SD card for our camera too, so here are some shots from the week:
