There's been quite a few changes over the past few months at Sweetwater Collective and we've been stoked on all the progress taking place while getting the studio aesthetic dialed in, bringing on new artists (myself included) and updating our website. There are still plenty of projects in the works, but we're getting close. As of recent, our website has been updated and we're pleased thus far with the results. Head on over to www.sweetwatercollective.com to take a look and feel free to get in touch about your next tattoo. We're open Monday through Saturday, 10-6 and we'd love to chat with you about your tattoo ideas!! Talk to you soon!
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” - Aristotle
Every day I wake up early. On most days I watch the sun rise over the beautiful mountains in the not too far distance from my quaint and modest home nestled in this lovely little valley of the Siskiyou Mountains. I am so grateful for the positive people in my life, for all I've experienced and all I've worked for and achieved, and that alone is a great motivator to strive for more, always.
I try to live every day, every moment, with intention and purpose. It's not always easy. Some days I want to sleep in, some days I want to do nothing but go with the motions, being carried to some destination not of my choosing, and some days I just want to give up entirely and let the world take me where it will. Yet I rarely succumb to these desires because my desire to achieve my own goals and forge my own destiny always wins.
I bring these habits into tattooing. If I need to stay up late and get up early to prepare for a client than that's what I do. If I need to hustle more because my current hustle isn't achieving my desired results, than I do that too. I know what I want out of life, out of tattooing, and I intend to get it by any means necessary without compromise. I know what it will take to achieve my goals, and while it is a daunting task, I am eager on a daily basis to actively engage in this struggle, to dare to win. This isn't to say I never falter, because I do, but I pick myself back up a keep moving forward.
I believe this is what it will take to reach the kind of success that I have defined for myself, and I won't hesitate to push myself beyond my own perceived limitations and boundaries to get there. To strive for something more than what I currently have, constantly, and with an unmatched determination. Victory is in the attempt and I won't let the potential for failure deter me. I welcome it with open arms as every failure is a lesson learned and a chance to grow.
In a world where mediocrity reigns, I intend to try more, harder, and to strive for an above average pursuit. I intend to be realistic and demand the impossible. It's really the only way I know to be. I'm not very good at settling, always restless and discontent by nature. I want to climb the highest peaks, travel the longest distance, take my life and tattooing as far as it will go with all my heart, with all my will and with everything I have to offer. Nothing less than everything will do!
