Occasionally I have some bad news to post, and unfortunately this is one of those times. Jordan Teear, a tattoo artist from Frith Street Tattoo in London was in LA to start a road trip to NYC when his bike was struck by another vehicle. Presently Jordan is in the hospital awaiting surgery for two broken legs. Aaron from True Tattoo Hollywood, another artist and Jordan’s friend was with Jordon on his road trip when the accident occurred. He’s since set up a fundraising effort to help not only Jordan, but any other tattoo artists who have been injured in bike accidents. If you would like to donate to this charity that can help other people in Jordan’s situation please send a donation as a gift via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also keep track of Jordan’s recovery via Aaron’s twitter account, or the Frith Street Tattoo website. Everyone here at BME wishes Jordan a speedy recovery.
That’s Jordan on the right, taken shortly before the trip began.
