Wow, so much has happened in eight years in fact so much has happened since I last wrote a blog post on here five years ago...
It is hard to believe that on July 1 2015 Pure Steam Tattoo was founded, so much craziness has happened since then and most of that craziness had nothing to do with owning the business! We were shut down due to the statewide mandates from Covid for two and a half months. I never thought a pandemic would almost put my shop out of business. Every time they would extend the shutdown by two more weeks I would go through the five stages of grief all over again. I mean how crazy was the curfew during all of this? Not to mention all of the political unrest too, but thankfully the shop made it through and is doing better than ever. I am very exited about the new artist I just hired Beck and it looks like Bethany my regular guest artist will be officially coming full time here in about a year from now :) As I write this I am filled with so much gratitude to each and every tattoo and piercing client who help support my business all of the years! Thank you so much and I love you all!
