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. ]]
