A thanks and a look at whats new at HST!

So here is my first HST news blog...If you are a client of HST, a fan of our work, a friend, or someone looking to expand your business or social event by adding the services of the HST staff, this blog will keep you informed of all the goings on with Giovani, HST and the staff...
     First off, I'd like to thank Bob Trankey and BT Inc. for doing a great job remodeling the back section of the studio...The new space really looks great, with plenty of natural light, and a great, open feel...Thanks to Dustin, Drew, and Craig for helping out and finishing the job while I soaked up some much needed sun in beautiful Florida!
     The HST staff was invited to attend the Abercrombie&fitch 5k and charity benefit, and we are proud to say that we raffled off $750.00 in gift certificates for an event that raised thousands of dollars for local charities!  We are looking forward to doing some great tattoos on the A&F management and staff!
      HST is proud to have helped raise nearly $1000 along with 99.7 the blitz, for the USO, and the benefit of our brave fighting men and women!!  We are all strong supporters of those who serve, and are very proud to have been a part of such a great event!  Plus, I got to tattoo the legendary Ronni Hunter!!
     HST will be hosting our 5 year anniversary party at the studio during the November gallery hop!
     Lots of prizes, free food and drinks, and a great time celebrating all the successes of 5 years at HST!
     HST presents A historical Tattoo retrospective in conjunction with Bicknee tattoo supply and the Ohio tattoo historical society.  Our great friend Rich T. will generously open his archive of some of the most unique historical tattoo artifacts in Ohio and present them to the public in a limited engagement at the HST studio...This exhibit will include original vintage flash art, along with antique tattoo equipment, and a pictorial history of Ohio tattoo history.  We will also be doing historical tattoo demonstrations, giving clients a look back in tattoo history.  This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, that HST is proud to present to Columbus!  Don't miss what is sure to be the most unique gallery show you will see this year!

     Look for new HST promo items coming soon: Pint glasses, Shirts, and some other good stuff still to come!

     Well, that's all the great stuff we have in the works right now, be sure to check back as I will do my best to update this blog as often as we get new info!  As always, thanks for your support of HST, we will continue to bring you "the mark of distinction that lasts a lifetime"
