forward-thinking leaders, inclusivity, and the future of the tattoo community

Hey there! I'm Russ Abbott.

 If you're an artist or studio owner facing problems, I've likely been there before. Let's Talk Shop! I founded LAUNCHPAD because let's face it, the tattoo groups on Facebook can be a hotbed of drama and negativity. But not with us!

Our mission is to shine as a beacon of positive vibes and forward-thinking ideas in the professional tattoo world. Our members are superheroes, paving the way for inclusivity and a bright future for the tattoo community.
