Is it really December already? Did we make it? It’s an odd feeling when the urge to celebrate our survival of 2020 overtakes December’s typical festive traditions.
There’s no melodrama or moroseness intended here, though. It was just an unprecedentedly tumultuous year. A plague, an economic collapse and mass riots, with threats of murder hornets and apocalyptic comets; that’s not your average trip around the sun.
For the greater part of the tattoo and piercing community, it was touch and go there for quite a while. For many, that’s still the case. We’re not out of the woods yet; Covid-19 case numbers are still surging and ebbing around the country like a giant game of whack-a-mole and our leaders have yet to get a lid on the situation. We’ve felt the crunch.
We want you to know that we’re here for you, to continue to keep you informed and connected, as well as act as a source of comfort and inspiration through these trying times. Stay connected with us, not just through the print magazine, but also through our digital offerings. We’re in this together.
Meanwhile, we’d like to wish you all the happiest of Holidays and a very, very delightful, cataclysm-free New Year.
