Me, my lovely wife Shannon Young and our friend Sara Ray operate Fine Art For Life Studio in beautiful Crestline, CA. This winter season we have been hit with a massive and damaging amount of rain and snow. The shop has been flooded 3 times in the past month, ranging from minor to major damage and the property owner and landlord are not concerned about the inches of standing water in our studio. Any attempts to control the issues have now left our storefront a total mess and the space is inoperable. I have invested a lot of time and my personal funds to making this vintage building more presentable and accommodating to clients and artists. Even the issues we have personally fixed are ruined.  At this point it is in our best interests to close the current location on Lake Dr. and change locations as soon as possible. Due to structural damage and health concerns for our clients and ourselves we are closed indefinitely and we are actively seeking a space to relocate. With this being said we will be out of work due to the condition of our current building and we would appreciate your help over the next month or so while we make the necessary adjustments to transition into our next location. All funds raised will go towards relocation of the shop, health department fees and other necessities in the interim.  This is not a charity case by any means. We have set up donation amounts for you to choose from and with each amount comes a gift card reward. You can use your reward for any of the items listed below: 1. Existing artwork in the shop or a custom piece from the artist of your choice - Mike Tuten, Shannon Young, or Sara Ray. 2. Tattoos: Your reward amount will be applied to future tattoo sessions. 3. Rock of Ages Pigments (tattooers only option) : Your reward amount will be given to you in the form of a www.roasupply.com DISCOUNT CODE for you to use on your next order So for example (according to the chart below) if you donate $50 you will receive a $75 gift card that can be used towards: $75 towards a piece of art from one of our artists or $75 towards your next tattoo or $75 gift card for ROASupply which will be sent to you in the form of a digital discount code through our online store.  *Every donation of $20 or more will also come with an additional choice of 1 free Sara Ray print (4 to choose from). These prints are valued at $20 and are printed on archival heavy weight Heidelberg paper. Thank you in advance, Mike Tuten and FAFL Studio Rewards 1. $5 donation will receive a $15 gift card  2 $10 donation will receive a $20 gift card 3. $15 donation will receive a $25 gift card 4. $20 donation will receive a $30 gift card 5. $50 donation will receive a $75 gift card  6. $100 donation will receive a $125 gift card 7. $200 donation will receive a $250 gift card 8. $300 donation will receive a $400 gift card 9. $500 donation will receive a $ 600 gift card  10. $1000 donation will receive a $1500 gift card 11.$10,000 donation gets tattooed for 2 years free of charge by Mike Tuten
