Inkspiration Tattoo Fundraiser

In the early evening hours of July 19th, a possible tornado ripped through the small town of McGregor, Iowa. It left extensive damage to many of the historic buildings in it's path. Sadly, the storm destroyed a three story building which has been home to artist- Crystal Scarff, and her business- Inkspiration Tattoo, for the last two years. The shop was open for business and thankfully everyone inside was physically unharmed.

Crystal is known by many for her amazing work in the tattoo industry. She is also one of the best people I know. She would never ask for help like this but she needs it. She gives everything she has to the beautiful art she creates and to her business and now she has to start over.

It's unknown what will be done about the building. At this point it could end up a total loss, be condemned and torn down. She could need a new business location along with a new place to live. It's likely appointments will be rescheduled. Her personal belongings, from her apartment on the top two floors, that cannot be salvaged from the debris will need to be replaced.

She has no place to call home and has lost her source of income for the immediate future. However, if we choose to look on the bright side- wherever Crystal goes, her exceptional talent will follow and we're so lucky everything that was lost can be replaced.

Tattooing is Crystal's passion. I want her to be able to get back to it as soon as possible and I'm sure all of her clients agree. If you can donate anything to help her get through this difficult time it will be greatly appreciated.
