It is hard starting up a small business. I stopped a well paid career to paint miniatures and the financial fall out has been a challenge. A good friend of mine has followed the same path, she has also stopped a well paid career to walk the path as a tattoo artist. She is damned good at what she does as well. Nansi Twice combines her immense real life drawing skills with the needle to create what I think is a unique look and feel.
Here are some examples:
Now, as a budding artist it’s a good idea to learn from the greats. She has applied to go to a seminar with a tattoo artist that she greatly admires, and got accepted! Win!
Now the tough bit. It’s in Berlin, she was told about it yesterday, and needs to pay for it by Tuesday Midnight. The problem here is that it costs £900, which is not a small amount of money to come up with in two days for anyone!
As a fellow artist in a small business, I said I would do all I could to help. Nansi has set up a GoFundMe and is doing all she can to raise the required money in the time frame. I don’t usually ask for money as it makes me uncomfortable but if there is anything you can do to help, please do.
