First off I'd like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support. I sold a ton of T-Shirts this past week and it really means a lot to me that all of you stepped up to help me out. I'm going to get all these orders off to the printers this Monday and hopefully have them out to you a couple weeks after. If you haven't had a chance to order a shirt and would like to, please make sure you get your order in before Sunday.

On another note, I just had 3 new articles drop in Europe (Skin Deep issue 181, Rise, and Bodyfication). I sent them a bunch of new tattoos that I've never posted on the internet before so if you wanna see them you're gonna hafta scoop yourself up one of these magazines:)

Till next time!!

Last Friday I messed up my drawing hand pretty bad playing soccer and unfortunately it has put me in a position where I can't tattoo. So I was trying to figure out a way to supplement my tattoo income and I came up with an idea. I had always wanted to see what would happen if I drew up something left handed and thought this was a good opportunity to try. I sat down with the intention to draw a T-Shirt design to sell to people who were interested in giving me a hand financially and to my surprise it turned out better then I had expected.

I ended up sketching a squirrel (go figure:) named Basher who was the sole survivor in the battle for the Golden Acorn. I also wrote a short story about how he ended up breaking his wrist that can be found behind the image on the T-shirt. If you are interested in scooping up a T-Shirt I would greatly appreciate it. All shirts will be printed on American Apparel and run $23 a piece. They are available in Men's (Grey or Sepia) and Girl's (Grey or Muave). Thank you all so much for your continued support, Jesse Smith
