A tattoo shop owner in Koreatown, Los Angeles is asking the public for help after falling victim to a burglary that left his place of business in shambles.
This would have been the first time the shop opened since the last COVID-19 lockdown orders took effect, according to owner Hiromitsu “Hiro” Huffman Yoshida.
In a YouTube video, Yoshida, who hails from Japan, shares the extent of the damage and explains how important Bad Hands LA is to him.
“They took everything, leaving me nothing. This is my heart. This is my passion. This is my life,” Yoshida says. “This is why I’m asking you, any of you, or all of you, if you guys can help donate. Anything [that can] help me get back to my life, my heart, my passion.”
Yoshida says the shop needs to replace many things, including equipment such as printers and a stencil/thermal machine, power supply, computers, tablets and merchandise. Doors, windows, glass shelves and their back door also need repairs as a result of the break-in.
Yoshida has organized a GoFundMe page to receive donations. NextShark has reached out to Yoshida for further comment, but you can head over here to help.
