[TL;DR version at the bottom.] °°°
Hey Pals, I'm bummed to say that the Champion Tattoo DC location is being forced move, & the doors will be closed after Feb 24th until further notice. After a 6 year lease, our landlord surprised us by not renewing, because landlords aren't people. But if you've been to Champs, you know we're a tight-knit crew & we're staying the fuck together. We're in the process of looking for a new space, & we'll announce any solid details on the search as soon as we have them. DC is a tough city to tattoo in, & the industry itself sheds integrity & commitment on a daily basis in the pursuit of wealth & fame. Fuck that. I'm gonna stick to doing the best tattoos I can, in fucking DC. But also in other states, too, while we find a new spot. Please keep an eye out for upcoming conventions & guest spots, & if you're tryna get tattooed please shoot me a DM. I'm in the process of solidifying my travels, so definitely let me know if I should hit your town.
Also! If you have work in progress with me, now is a great time to finish it up. I'll absolutely give steep discounts to clients who are trying to finish big pieces. But if you can't make it out in the next 2 weeks, don't worry, we will definitely finish your tattoo.
And finally, just for kicks & to help with the cost of moving, we're having a flash tattoo event on Sunday Feb 18th, 1pm - 8pm. All designs from the flash sheet will be $50, one per person, first come first served. If you can't make it & wanna help out, you can donate at the link in my bio.
Thank you to everyone who has shown me love & support. This moment is tough, but I'm determined to get through it.
