Help Local Denver Artist
Chad Martin, long time and well known tattoo artist in the Denver, Colorado area, needs our help.
Chad was given short notice to vacate the shop he had for the past 10 years this past December 2014. He had put well over $60,000 into the remodeling and upgrading this shop and was a good tenant. He made it his mission to locate and lease another place and remodel it, get permits, and all necessary inspections for himself and the employees that were relying on him. He was in the final steps to opening his shop to find out that it could not be zoned for the area as a tattoo shop and the last $7000 that he had to his name was depleted. He was not able to provide a place for the employees to work in nor for himself. Now he is left with nothing and only a guest spot at another studio. He has no money to keep himself afloat and definitely nothing to open another shop. The landlord of the new place he remodeled for the shop neglected to inform him that it could not be zoned for his shop.
Chad has fought many obstacles in his lifetime, one being cancer. He has helped a great number of people unselfishly over the years and now I have started this fund raising campaign to help him get back on his feet and secure his dream.
Can you help? Even a dollar will help greatly. If you cannot financially help, can you please pass this along? Chad with Sinfultration is a very talented artist and to lose this great talent because of a few irresponsible people and unfortunate circumstances would be a terrible loss for the community.
