I started leather work in the midst of still establishing myself as a tattoo artist. Eventually through out my tattooing journey I landed at a wonderful shop where I had a constant flow of clients, a great group of employees but I still felt like I was missing something. One work day I sat down with the shop manager and we started making lists of different short term and long term goals we wanted to set for ourselves. It was definitely an eye opening and pivotal moment in my life and I believe for hers as well. She moved to Colorado!!! and I decided I wanted to fully commit to doing leather work and start my own business. BOTH TERRIFYING!!! I knew it was and is going to be a lot of work, but I have always been so passionate about animals, art, people, really anything I am involved in I put my entire heart into. I think taking risks, no matter how scary the situation may be, is so so SO important. Stop making excuses, be prepared to fall and get back up numerous times, but if you want it bad enough....Take the leap. I am so glad I did.
