About this project
Over the recent years, fans of geek and culture alike have had a growing interest in getting tattoos from their favorite shows or comics. There are an estimated 20,000+ parlors operating in the United States, the issue with this is that very few tattoo shops in the United States are currently trained in tattooing geek related tattoos or are willing to put the time into them, and that's where we come in.
GlowFly Ink is an up-and-coming tattoo parlor in Milwaukee, WI., run by fans for fans of the geek culture. By partnering up with local establishments, GlowFly Ink will be able to bring you some of the best tattoo artists of the area along with all the latest and greatest comics, shows, and games of today to pass the time. GlowFly Ink strives to establish a friendly, care free, at home environment.

With opening a new parlor, there are many expenses that come along with it. Such as Licensing, Rent/Deposit, Supplies, Furniture, Etc. Having already made partners with some local businesses in the area, we currently have some expenses covered but in total we still need your help. With a building already in mind, some minor supplies covered, and some other minor expenses covered as well we have been able to bring down are amount needed to only 5000.
