6 Weeks in :)
So...... Today i'm starting a blog :) here i'll be updating about whats gonna be going on in and out of the studio regarding guest artists, the team, the shop and conventions.
Today we have been open 6 weeks and we cant thank the the people of Looe enough for there huge warm welcome and help within there individual skill sets to get our lovely little business off to a flying start. From day one, it was easy to see that we were going to love it here, Sun, Sea, Sand and smashing people are a great mix for a perfect life :)
Re-modelling the shop was a rough old slog for 2 girls from the Midlands with no background in any form of handy work, because after all, thats what we've got dads for!!!
Sooooo we worked all day and night for 3 weeks with help on mass to sort Plumbing (Darloe) Wallpapering (Annie) Wood work (Steve) Flooring (Scott) Painting (Ellie & Chloe) and Electrics (Olly) not to forget the legend that is Mel's Dad :) who without his love, support and hard work, none of this would have been achievable, however, we all came through together in the end and we were able to open the door on schedule doing a cracking 7 tattoos on the first day :)
We have been overwhelmed with the amount of bookings that we have had and are really looking forward to the Summer kicking in to be able to tattoo the tourists and spread Cats art work across the country from the shop or through guest spots and conventions, starting in July with the brand new Cirque Du Tattoo Festival (http://www.cirquedutattoo.com/)
Just to add a huge thanks all of our friends and family from the Midlands and beyond, that listened to us winging about our dream for so many years and helped it become a reality, we love you all and cant wait to see you down our neck of the woods :)
