Kiss of Ink Tattoo Fire recovery

On the early morning of august 21 a tragic fire ripped through Kiss Of Ink Tattoo studio on Hamilton ave in Trenton. Fire crews were able to extinguish the flames but in the end all was lost. 

Thankfully no one was injured due to the fire. However we have lost many valuable possessions, equipment, jewelry, artwork and personal memorabilia that has been collected these past 22 years. We have lost our studio which has become like a home to so many people. 

The building is a total loss. Although we only rented the building / now we are without a location.  We are in the process of finding a new building to rent. Rent and renovations can be costly, as we could recover nothing from the fire. As we strive to quickly find a new location and open back up so our employees and ourselves can continue to serve our customers and put food on our tables. We ask for help to make this happen as quickly as possible. 

All funds donated will immediately go towards equipment for our artists to get back in shop & any rebuilding to our studio. 

We thank you for your kindness and support at this time. As devastating as this tragedy is we are grateful for our amazing family, friends and clients who have come together.  We know we can make a new and better studio with your help. Kiss of ink has been a valued institution in TRENTON for over 22 years at this location and always on Hamilton ave. We have not given up on Trenton and never will it is the home of Kiss if Ink and where it all started for us. we love our community and it saddens me to have to leave our neighbors behind. But we will overcome this devastating loss. And try to rise above.

Even if you are unable to donate, please share this post to get the word around

Thank you.
