The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, including those who are self-employed artists, like myself.
I work as a Tattoo Artist at a lovely tattoo shop located in Soho, London. Unfortunately, due to the government's advice the shop has been shut for the foreseeable future, meaning I have no means of working or earning money.
Working as a Tattoo Artist has been the best experience of my life, although it's been hard, hard work, don't get me wrong :) There's nothing I love more than meeting my clients, hearing their stories, designing their tattoos and seeing their reaction, once it's all done.
Those of you who know me personally will know that there's nothing more I'd love right now than to be able to come back to work.
Given the uncertainty of the situation and me having no means of making money I've found myself in the spot of not being able to make rent, meaning I'll have to move out, perhaps even leave the country.
It would mean to world to me if you could support me in any possible way. As a thank you I will prepare designs, posters, tattoo discounts and tattoo vouchers, which can be used once the shop is back an running.
I hope all of you are well at this tough time and that I'll be able to see all my returning and new clients as soon as it is possible.
