Why did you start streaming?
Honestly, I was just bad at video games so I decided to stream what I was mildly mediocre at and do on a daily basis which was tattooing! It was a new way to expand my social media presence and show everyone my artwork.
Not only does it bring a whole new experience to my client but it holds me accountable daily to provide the best possible work I can because what’s more intimidating than having a bunch of people on the internet watching your every permanent move?
What made you stream on KICK?
I made the choice to stream on Kick to prove a point in the beginning and after a handful of successful streams, I went full send. The amount of pride that the platform takes in its creators and trying to get anyone on any level to be the best creator they can be is amazing.
People will always have their opinions on what is right and what is wrong but overall this platform allows the creator to do what they do best..create.
95/5 Revenue Split at Kick
The revenue split as a whole allows the creator to put back into their content and community. This is huge for anyone looking to step their game up to the next level to follow their dreams of being a full-time creator.
What type of Content do you produce?
The content I make is a little bit different than the norm. I create permanent doodles (tattoos) on people 5 days a week.
It creates an entire experience for those with and without tattoos. From learning pure basics of standard sanitation/sterilization to even aftercare.
Let me elaborate this is not a substitute for a proper apprenticeship. I have helped people successfully acquire apprenticeships themselves by helping with their art/portfolio and even explaining how to get their foot in the door.
It allows people to see that this industry isn’t as intimidating as some people make it look. It gives people an idea of what tattoos could look like and what to find in an artist if they’re looking for tattoos themselves.
First Verified Tattoo Artist on Kick
From being the first verified Tattoo Artist and now the First Class partnered Tattoo Artist on the platform my community and I have set a nice foundation for any other artist coming in to do the same.
We have even done charity events where we raised the most money across the board ($6000+) during the BBJess Kick vs Twitch event. Making KICK community the winner!
