Dates: February 2019-August 2019
[[August 2019: Farewell to the incredible Alex Gama, Natalie and baby June Bug! Our relationship with Alex dates back to his tattoo apprenticeship, and carried forward to a serendipitous 2017 visit to the Asheville, NC region. That visit with Alex, Nat, and infant June — and to the River Arts District in Asheville — gave us inspiration to open The Collective. Alex moved out here and enabled the shop to find its early legs, doing some dazzling work and attracting clients when we needed a kick start. The Collective will always have a hitching post ready for Alex. The Gama’s are now in Jacksonville, Florida, so keep that in mind if you find yourself near the Florida-Georgia line. ]]
A Short Bio:
Alex started tattooing in Hawaii in 2009. Since then he has been traveling, started a family and opened his own shop in North Carolina while finishing a degree in acupuncture. Alex is a versatile artist who enjoys all styles of tattooing. After helping us get the shop established, Alex relocated to Jacksonville Beach, Florida.
