CordovaInk Raising Funds for Mobile Tattoo TruckBusiness Profiles — By Susan Post on June 2, 2014 at 8:00 am
Columbus has food trucks and retail trucks but CordovaInk wants to add a new truck to the mix – a mobile tattoo truck. Husband-and-wife duo Abraham and Katie Cordova are the creatives behind the truck that would be the first of its kind in Ohio.
Originally eyeing a brick-and-mortar location, the duo decided to take their dream of opening a tattoo studio on the road. They found a truck to be a unique concept that also lowered the financial commitment to get started.
Discovering they would be the first in Ohio to mobilize the concept after speaking with the health department, the couple became smitten with the idea.
“It’s rare that you’re the first to do anything these days,” Katie says.
CordovaInk started a Go Fund Me campaign to raise the necessary funds for the truck, which they already have picked out. An old ambulance will be converted to a mobile tattoo parlor with only a few changes necessary.
Once the truck is purchased, the Cordovas are eager to get rolling to Columbus Festivals. Katie hopes the shop will be ready for their debut at Independent’s Day in September.
The truck will also help them achieve their long-term goal of opening a retail storefront.
“With this mobile shop we will spread CordovaInk’s name and raise funds for our store front location,” The Cordovas say.
