Not Opening The Shop Again... at least not where it was

A lot of people have been asking me about the shop... when it will open and all of that. Somewhere on my site there must be a mention of the fact that I opened April 1st (which I did, years ago) and are reading that thinking that I am opening again on the first. I am not. I have no earthly idea when I will get the shop open again, if ever.

You see, I have not gotten a single cent from my insurance company yet, and, until I do, I do not have the funds to open another shop or to replace some vital equipment that was in the shop that I would need to tattoo with. I have been tossing the idea of working for someone around for a little while, but I do have full time job (not tatooing) right now, and I am not willing to give that up with the finacial situation being what it is in New Orleans.

I can't tell you when that will change. I never would have guessed before all of this that it would take my insurance company over eight months (at this point) to come through on a claim which is pretty much straight forward. I mean, isn't that why we get insurance in the first place. I don't mean to sound bitter, but I get phone calls and emails every day asking me when I will be working again, and I have no idea what to tell people.

As soon as I know anything else, I will be sure to let you all know. But until then, it is still all up in the air.
