My fellow readers,
I am a 26 year old girl with a Bachelor's degree in Marketing. I currently live in Mexico City, and as you may (or may not know) the living conditions here are very rough for us, as we have a corrupt Government and the drug dealers are taking over the peace & tranquility of us, honest hardworking citizens. I am reaching out to you because it's been hard on me and my family these past 5 years as I live with my parents, my dad got laid off 10 years ago, and my mum has been unemployed for about 8 years also.
So, here comes me, their daughter, and came up with an idea to start a business in order to help my family make it through, and behold! To make this city a little bit more of an interesting place to live in.
Here's the deal: I have worked in multiple corporations, but I haven't gotten paid well enough to support me and my family, and the working conditions are very rough. Haven't even been able to save up for a place of my own to live in! My idea is to create a bar/tattoo parlour in Mexico City, at the very heart of the City (Centro Historico), which is crowded with tourists and locals, so I know that it could be a very big hit. Let me state that in Mexico, the tattoo boom is only beginning, as the new generations are very open about them, but the older generations can be a nightmare. There is no such thing as "Tattoo acceptance in the workplace" over here. In theory, yes. in practice? Hell no. Let's fight the discrimination by showing a twist as to whom would walk into a tattoo parlour and who wouldn't, while in time, helping me and my family make it through!
Why would this be different that any other tattoo parlours/bars around here?
Well, first of all, this would be a place medieval-style decorated. The lighting is going to be dim (Please get in touch for further details, as I don't want to reveal all my ideas on here. Might get stolen! =/) one could come in and have a pint of beer and a general good time, while in the back, people are getting tattooed by pure artists (please do look up recognised tattoo artists around the globe, and a lot of Mexicans will pop up - in Mexico we are pretty damn good at it, so there's success spelled all over it).
((Look up "Last Rites" in New York City. Not quite as dark, and imagine a bar in it also)).
What I am asking for is your help me kickstart this project, (since my faboulous Government won't help at all). I need money to rent a store, to buy all the decor, and to get the necessary permits.
What's in for you?
If this idea is successful and this project becomes a reality, all of you will have the option of getting a tattoo for free! And if this project becomes a really big hit, I will grant the top 20 donors free meals/drinks for as long as my store is in business! I will get you a dragon memento as well.
