Last week was a pretty big week for us here at PMA Tattoo! On October 4th, we celebrated our SECOND year anniversary! Holy smokes - we can hardly believe it! There have been so many positive changes over the last two years here at the shop. It’s crazy to think how it all began with our hero, Sara Eve, who opened up the shop with no idea of what to expect. She quickly became too busy for her own good, and brought in Abby Rose to help manage the shop, which then lead to an apprenticeship under Sara Eve to learn the craft of tattooing.
After almost a year and a half of working together, honing her drawing skills, managing scheduling and client communication, getting Red Cross certification, handling inventory, cleaning the shop, and studying, Abby did her very first tattoo on our 2nd year anniversary day! We laughed. We cried. It was riveting. Seriously, though, it’s crazy how far we’ve come and how much we have grown here at PMA! Speaking of growth, you’ll all be seeing a new face here at PMA!
Marisa Mathews is our new shop manager in-training! Marisa is a very talented artist (and has a ton of paintings that you should totally check out)! As of now, she is handling our social media and is slowly easing her way into taking on further responsibilities. She will likely start handling emails in the next couple of months, so if you’re emailing the shop to get scheduled don’t be afraid to say hello!
We are so excited to be opening up in our new location in December! Keep your eyes peeled for an announcement about our shop warming party - it’s going to be a rip roarin’ good time!
As always, thank you all for your encouragement and support. We wouldn’t be here without all of you!
