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.

Hi Sage..Phyllis here...I dont blame you for not wanting to come back to this virtual "HELL" of a city. It looks as though someone filmed a doomsday movie here and forgot to tear down the set. At least two murders EVERY nite as gang members claim abandoned homes to live in and they all fight for turf. There was an incident last week on BOURBON ST...five people were caught in the gunfire. N. O. used to be dangerous if you didnt know the rules but now everyone is fair game for crime. If you remember Tracy, she and her husband were mugged right in front of a bunch of people in the afternoon on Royal street...She was knocked to the ground. But inspite of it all she and her hubby are doing well after dozens of setbacks. Im on the out with the pagan community as of now. I was much more forceful in voicing what I believed and was "censured" from the original eclectic group. They have since formed a tighter group which is MUCH more particular in who they allow in..needless to say I was not on their "IN LIST"...oh well not the first time I've been told to keep my mouth shut...lol..I've since repented and come to grip with my belief system ...and it leads me to Atheism, which is so NOT COMPLICATED and I feel very comfortable...BTW my daughter, the one whose nose you pierced is working at The Body Shop a tattoo place in Slidell... she loves it..If you ever come to town let me know, Id love to just give you a hug..hope you get your insurance worked out..dont stress my mother in law is living in a garage apartment in Metairie after her gentilly home was destroyed and underwater for three weeks...it may be another year for the insurance/FEMA/and the City powers that be get their act together. Peace kiddo...kiss the little wolves for me...

Sage... i am just another weary soul looking to add some colour back into my LIFE... i will continue to hold out for the stars to align for "us." (over these past several years, I have come to actually pray for it, oddly enough.) Till then... G_d bless you and yours!

Haven't heard from you in a long time, so the husband and I were wondering what has become of you and whether or not you are back in NOLA, or somewhere else, and most importantly - are you still tattooing.

Hope all is well.

Heather, You haven't heard from me in ages, but I just tracked you down after hearing your name from an old friend I hadn't seen in 20 years - I am sorry to hear about your crappy time with Katrina and the and the icing on the cake from the corporate bastards in the insurance industry...

I tried to shoot you an email at sage@tattoosbysage.com a few days ago, but it looks like that account is no longer active. If you are interested in a little nostalgia, shoot me an email at aardvarklove@yahoo.com - either way, I hope things are going better for you now.

good day ppl. I'm actually into shoes and I have been digging for that particular model. The prices as regards the shoes are around 200 bucks on every site. But definitively I bring about this area selling them as a remedy for half price. I really love these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]gucci sneakers[/url]. I will definetly purchase these. what is your opinion?
