Jesse Smith’s Left Handed T-shirts

by | Jan 13, 2010 | POLITICS

Jesse is a ridiculously talented tattoo artist here in Richmond. He’s out of commission for a while, though, after injuring his hand:

Last Friday I messed up my drawing hand pretty bad playing soccer and unfortunately it has put me in a position where I can’t tattoo. So I was trying to figure out a way to supplement my tattoo income and I came up with an idea. I had always wanted to see what would happen if I drew up something left handed and thought this was a good opportunity to try. I sat down with the intention to draw a T-Shirt design to sell to people who were interested in giving me a hand financially and to my surprise it turned out better then I had expected.

Emphasis mine, to highlight a fantastic pun. Here’s the link to pick up one of his shirts.
