**Warning: Emotional post about 2018 and 2019**
This past year has been absolute hell but yet there were so many incredible moments that outweighed the bad. I’m going to get a little personal in this. Last January I was very sick, mentally and physically. I was sick with chronic Lyme disease and severely depressed. I was 93 pounds and suffering through anorexia. I was in numerous toxic situations on top of that.
I tried killing myself and ended up hospitalized. I promised to never tattoo again. I was at rock bottom.
A month later one of my best friends and coworkers passed away. I had to heal a lot to then realize I need to be tattooing. For him, for me, and for you guys.
This year I experienced hell, healing, and so much hope. I published a book explaining what I endured this year, gained all of my weight back, healed for 9 months, got to experience life changing events that I thought were impossible, meeting heroes, being a part of an incredible and healthy work environment and tattooing, got my dream car, and meeting all of you.
The biggest part of 2018 is that I survived and I am alive. 2019 is full of dedication, bettering myself in so many aspects, personally and professionally. I’m going to do better this year and try to improve in so many aspects. Thank you for supporting me. You are the reason I’m here. You guys give me strength and love and I am extremely grateful. I love you. Happy new year.
