@iamjakesteele Relief Fund

Hey everyone! It’s Jake Steele! I’ve been traveling a lot lately and transitioning into California living for the last 6 months. I moved out to LA from Pittsburgh last August to pursue my tattooing. There’s been a lot of ups and downs along the way, and I’ve learned so much about my craft along the journey. I am posting this because I need your help!

I am making this fundraiser because I recently had the tools of my trade stolen from me and I don’t have enough resources to continue pursuing my career. I am incredibly attached to my work and it is what gives me strength and inspiration. Inside the bag I had: An IPad Pro, Asus Laptop, 3 rotary Tattoo machines, art supplies, cash, shchedules, hand made gifts and autographed artwork, and my passport.

As a traveling artist, my life is constantly changing and I have to learn to adapt to new situations quick. This was a tough blow and I absolutely cannot do it by myself at the moment. I’m currently between living arrangements and have been couch surfing and staying at hotels. I am tired, run down, and I don’t have much energy left.

I am asking for a simple donation so I can get some new gear. I made the amount for the stuff I gathered values for, but I will never get back the sentimental items missing. Any help will be seriously appreciated.

I will mail out some custom drawn artwork if you donate and send an email to iamjakesteele@gmail.com.
