Thankful

Hey Everyone!

I'd like to take a moment to say how truely thankful I am to be tattooing. Tattooing has been the one true constant in my life for the past 5 years from the commencement of my apprenticeship to now. It has given me so much and made me sacrafice a lot as well. I honestly cannot imagine myself doing anything else, the investment that is tattooing  has returned more that I could have ever hoped for. I'm thankful to aslo be now working at a studio that genuinely cares about me as a person and the work that is produced. It's been almost 2 years now that I've been at Off The Map, and I couldn't be happier. When I first started I compared it to being thrown into the deep end of the pool with just barely knowing how to tread water. It wasn't the case it was in reality that OTM and tattooing that has kept me afloat, and taught me to swim.... It's humbling to say the very least. Thank you.
