Lets Help Kate

I really wrote about an icon in the tattoo industry, Shanghi Kate, also known as the grandmother of tattoos.  She is a talented and respected tattoo sixty six year old artist that recently had a bad fall resulting in a shattered leg.  She has been tattooing since 1971 and has tattooed celebrities such as Howard Stern, Mike McCready of Pearl Jam, Jackdaw, David LaChapelle, Casey Affleck, during her career.  I just wanted to bring some attention to the fund raiser started to help Kate pay her crazy expensive health bills.  If you go to Kate’s MySpace page, or to a site recently erected solely for the purpose of helping Kate out with this unplanned expense.  Kate has lived as many tattoo artists do, living on the commission she earns through her craft.  If she can’t work she can’t make money.  If you want to give back to the tattoo community helping Kate would be a great way to show your love.
