WHO ARE WE?
Alex Néron is a visual and tattoo artist native to the Nation's Capital, and Marta Jarzabek is a tango aficionado originally from Brantford, Ontario. Together, we are an enthusiastic, creative, passionate couple with a vision, an undying love for the arts and an entrepreneurial spirit to match.
We're working day and night towards our goal of opening a new tattoo studio and art gallery in Hintonburg, Ottawa. Railbender Studio will bring a unique style of tattoo design to one of Ottawa's most creative communities, while offering a beautiful gallery space featuring works by local and international artists.
BRICKS 'N MORTAR
The journey towards making Railbender a reality involves lots of elbow grease and significant hard costs. As you can see, our new space needs some major work before we can open our doors...

- Plumbing and installation costs towards a new toilet, sink and vanity

Risks and challenges
Our greatest risk, undoubtedly, is that we will not reach our target with Kickstarter; our greatest challenge is to complete all renovations to our specifications and within budget. Eeeeeeek! But what's a project (of a lifetime!) without a few risks and challenges?! Our answer: one not worth pursuing!
Our passion and commitment to this project leaves us no time to fret. Rather, it inspires us to be innovative. We will continue to work hard to ensure the renovations are done right - and done well, and promise to keep you posted on our progress along the way :D
Thank-you for looking at our Kickstarter, let's gather the nuts and bolts we need to get this project off the ground!
Our love and gratitude,
