hi friends n folks - sorry for the delay in choosing a winner for my giveaway ! the winner is @garbagezamboni pls email me abt how to claim ya stuff !
on another note - i would like to say that since i have started tattooing, i have been able and privileged enough to be in a position where i can thankfully, make adjustments to my schedule and my output as an artist for the sake of my own mental health. that being said , since i have started tattooing I have had one vacation that wasn’t work related - and i have lately been feeling the weight of that more than i usually do.
i am very thankful to be able to be in a position where i can step back, acknowledge when i am starting to notice bad habits, bad feelings, and be able to recognize that my mental illnesses do prevent me from being able to perform at my best one hundred percent of the time if i am not taking time to make sure i am okay first beforehand. i try really hard to be honest w folks about where i am at and would hope that they could meet me halfway - and would know i would do the same for them as well.
anyways - what’s going on is that i am feeling the weight of things more lately, and i am going to be taking an extended time off from my oakland trip until the end of august. if we have an appointment together you’ll recieve an email about rescheduling, refunding your deposit, as well as the other things that moving things around is going to entail.
this is something that i feel will give me some time to process my trauma, step back from social media, and be able to heal and move forward more than i have been able to in the past since i simply haven’t had the time.
i appreciate the understanding and hope folks can find ways big or small to be able to feel okay again
