In owning the tattoo shop and working in education I have learned that it is all about the people we serve. There are times where we have long nights and go above and beyond the call of duty!
In education we wear several hats Including: chaperone, fill in parent, teacher, colleague, counselor, disciplinarian, fundraiser, and many more. The same is true at the tattoo shop from: fundraiser, counselor, artist, friend, supporter, and many more.
We work hard in both professions to what is best for our students and clients alike. It truly is all about them!
We host events each year to support our Tattoo famile as well as our community. We always want to given back. Recently, we hosted a Friday the 13th event. We do not host these events for us. We host them for our clients and their friends. This is our way of giving back for all the amazing members of the Electrik Needle family. During these events we don’t make any money and we even stay up until the wee hours of the morning to make sure we get to all the customers who signed up. We also host events to collect canned food and school supplies to meet the needs of our community! As much as we love making amazing art it is more important to love and support the community we love.
The same is true for our educational community! We work long hours and even on the weekends because it is all about the students and their pursuits of their dreams. We constantly work more than 40 hrs a week we chaperone dances, attend graduations, work fundraisers, attend competitions and watch our student compete to win awards! It’s all about those light bulb moments and the students having a smile on their face.
In both worlds, we always give back and strive to be the best version of ourselves! It’s all about their success not our! We get to accomplish our dreams all while making others dreams come true in return!
