Pooling

I am in the midst of a lot of traveling but will be able to offer to tattoo the flash piece at the end of January on Arapaho, Cheyenne, Ute, and Oceti Sakowin territories (Denver, CO). I will be able to offer the flash piece on Choctaw and Chitimacha territories (New Orleans) in February and March. In April onward I will be able to offer the flash piece on Salish territory (Olympia, WA). Apologies for the moving location but hopefully that will open the tattoo up to more people! It is important to share that I am a white settler. As far as accessibility goes, my studio spaces in Denver and Olympia require a couple steps to access.

i am a white, queer, nonbinary, settler descended mostly from from english colonizers and irish immigrants. colonization and white supremacy are violences that white settlers have to heal in our own ancestry and we can only do so while supporting indigenous sovereignty, black liberation, and building real, close connections with one another across our struggles. this flash piece is about the sludge we must move through to forge such connections. i work in a private studio with four stairs to enter that is not chemical/scent free. x
