Relief For Artists

Good day to all,

My name is David Eisener, and to those that read this, please give consideration to the following story.

For those that know, there has been great loss felt by many in the Bridgewater area. On Sunday, October 22nd, there was a fire that engulfed a number of businesses on King Street. One of them was a well known tattoo parlour called Artistic Issues.

Many can and will speak at length of the quality of art that is produced by the two artists there, Aaron and Rennick. Day in and day out, they devote their time and energy to creating masterpieces that literally last a life time.

However, through recent events, they have lost thousands of dollars in equipment. If anyone is familiar with tattooing, they will know that a power supply alone can run up a couple hundred dollars (at least) and good machines can cost thousands. Not to mention all of the high quality inks, needles, and decorations that Aaron had collected through his life so far - all gone. The hardest part of it all; there is NO insurance to cover any of it.

Having been tattooed by, and ultimately having known Rennick for the vast majority of my life, I can say with full confidence that this is a difficult time for him, his coworker Aaron, and all those who seek to receive beautiful, permanent pieces of art from these gentlemen.

I’m am hopeful that through the number of people who have known these two kind humans, that we will be able to help relieve a part of the financial burden that they are now facing.

Please share this page in as many places that you can think of. I know that for me and many others, this is a big deal for a small town business that makes a large impact on those fortunate enough to know them.
