Valkyrie survives another year! Four to be exact this month!
I always think about the people that keep this place going, and I have such high regard for the people that come in here and support us. The close friends and clients know that having project Valkyrie is and has been my dream for so long, and to be endeavoring on just warms my soul. So, thank you clients and friends for coming in here and honoring your tattoos as much as we do. On the other side I want to say how much effort and energy goes into doing these tattoos. As of January 2012 the health department has new laws in effect, and we have had to do a lot of work for compliance and pay a lot of money to have a professional establishment. We spend hours and hours coming up with custom designs for your tattoos, that we don't charge for- and the setting up the stations and breaking down, and all the cleaning is very time consuming. Not to mention the cost for all the disposables we go through to make sure you are safe. So thank you everyone who thinks our charge for tattoos is fair and thank you everyone who tips us here. Tattooing is magic. But it is way more than just, Presto! There is so much sweat equity that goes into it, so thank you everyone who gets this.
Here is Gary's hawk tattoo I did last week. He was such a pleasure to tattoo. We both agreed upon the fine things in life, like good quality olive oil!
