Support My Tattoo School Journey

People have been encouraging me to start a career in tattoo work since I was a young girl drawing Pokemon characters on my friends. After getting the oportunity to practice with a tattoo machine, I think I'm ready now.
To become a tattoo artist in Oregon, you are required to attend (and pass) a certified tattoo school. Because I'm avoiding more debt added to my current college loans, I'm asking my community to help with the tuition. I need $1,000 to secure a spot (there are currently two openings!) and then $2,000 to start school. The rest of tuition can be paid in installments over a 3 -4 month period. 

I'm not a fan of taking without giving back, so if you choose to help with the cost of tattoo school, I will make it worth your while! 
Here are some perks I'm offering:

$200: One custom tattoo of your choice (sized no larger than 5 inches).

$100: One tattoo (no larger than 5") from the provided page of designs.

$50: One original drawing from my available 2017 daily drawings -or- a henna tattoo drawn on your hand

$40: One custom pet portrait of any animal of your choosing. This is a great option if you’re wanting to make a donation AND create a gift to a friend or family member. Win win for everyone!

$25: Your choice of a digital print from the provided page of designs.

$15: Two 3" temporary tattoos 

Perks will be redeemed after my completion of tattoo school, which will take about 6 months. 

Availability to tattoo school is filling up, and so I'm hoping to enroll as soon as possible. Thank you for being a part of this transition in my life! <3 <3
