Thoughts on my first year at Off The Map Tattoo

Today marks my first year at Off The Map Tattoo! Its hard to believe the changes that have taken place in my life over such a short period of time. I have this overwhelming sense of gratitude towards the people in my life, I'm truly lucky to have the life I have. I can strongly remember how nervous I was to move, I was unsure if I would be able to measure up, if I would be able to book regular clients, If my tattoos and paintings were even good enough to be at such an amazing shop. I chose to ignore the fear, and continue to put myself out there, I feel like I have repeated that process every day for this last year. I'm grateful for the ability to work as hard as I do, I am so grateful for everyone that I work with, they were all so welcoming and really pushed me to be better. I so fortunate to have met so many amazing people over this last year that have inspired me in ways that I could not have imagined. This pas year has completely changed me and my outlook on just about everything. For the first time in my life everything I have learned, every failure, every success, every life experience have merged into one path, and I truly love my direction. I will continue to push myself daily, with the help, love, support of those around me, along with hard work, I am excited to see what this year will bring. Thank you to all the people in my life who support my work, you fuel the fire that allows me to create.
