Hello Maverick Family!
With 2022 coming to a close I wanted to send this end of year note to all of you. Thank you for being apart of this Community, for radiating positivity to others, and allowing us to make your day with our hand written notes. Your response to our team, projects, and feedback on our products brings us to an exciting new chapter in 2023!
Looking back at this year has made me very proud to be a Tattooer. Spending 21+ years of my life dedicated to the tattooing industry has allowed me to grow, learn tough lessons, work on my communication, and (thanks to my wife, and some solid advice for all of you) stop to celebrate and appreciate my accomplishments. If you’re anything like me, it’s so easy to critique and go over what could have been done better, but at the end of the day, I’ve added value to others' lives and I’m very proud to be in a profession where I can do that on a daily basis.
This year we started our Maverick Family Artist Spotlight! A really cool interview format blog/newsletter that lets you get to know some other amazing Tattooer’s throughout the Country. This Spotlight makes me very happy because it also allows the featured Tattooer to donate to a non profit of their choosing through our “GiveBack” program. I am extremely honored to share with you, that through your purchases we have donated over $6k to organizations that help support women subject to abuse, sea turtles and pollution in the ocean, transgender youth, and countless others. To see the organizations and months of donation, please go to the "GIVEBACK" section on our home page.
ALL OF YOU. Everyone that has purchased a product has contributed to helping improve the lives of others and the world around us. From the top all the way to the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU.
We also launched the SideHustle project and we have seen amazing support around this effort and learning about other Tattooer’s and Creative’s Hustles. Showcasing the unbelievable talent is one of my favorite parts about Maverick. I’m always blown away over the talent that’s in and entering our industry.
To the Tattooer’s and people who have reached out to share people they know with Side Hustles, THANK YOU. You took the time out of your day to reach out and share some talented folks with us, sometimes even yourself and we truly appreciate it.
Next year we are working on expanding our offering with some great new products! Our goal is to become your #1 choice for tattoo products, shop swag, ALL things Tattooer related, and awareness and good articles on other talents and artists.
