2016 Rendition toy drive

I’m beyond proud of the way our crew smashed yesterday for the toy drive.We had a line around the building by 11am and we tattooed solid from 11:30 yesterday to 7:30am today.I believe we did 180ish tattoos but didn’t get a exact amount.Im also really proud of the community for coming out and supporting.The amount of toys we recieved is insane.We also got a ton of canned goods donated and also filled the van with shoes and clothes again.I knew it was going to be nuts once again but we really never know exactly how crazy it’s going to be and without everyone’s support it wouldn’t be possible.
My wife @kimberlyrose84 is always there to make sure things run smooth and I don’t loose it.Adam,Angela,Kylie,Lindy and Jason always just show up and handle things all day and go with the flow.We have a solid group of friends and family that just know how to get things done and make it happen without any side stepping.
My tattoo family showed up strong. Our regular in house guys @rawbert81 @ancientastime @jhodsontattoo @worm_rodriguez smashed as always and @laurenalexandralux and @davidfloresatc made the trip up for another year and smashed as well.
My great longtime friend @buddy.holiday made trip out from @downtowntattoolasvegas and brought @ericmildlyhandsome along with him.Although they had no idea how many people really show up to get tattooed they put their head down and powered through and helped a ton. @xmarcxiex even made a surprise guest appearance and did a few tattoos which was amazing as well.This event means so much to me because I have seen first hand the effect it has on people so having everyone come together for it means so much to me and I can’t express that enough.
People drove for hours just to get tattooed and then keep their spirits high while hanging out for hours while waiting to get tattooed.So a huge thank you to everyone that showed up and we want you to know that we are already talking about how we can make next year even bigger and better plus it will be our 5th one at rendition so it has to be huge.
