SUPERIOR – without the love of his fiancé-to–be and no money to pay for her funeral, an aspiring superior tattoo artist falls apart.
His love, 25-year-old Jennifer Maciejeski, died just five days ago on February 17.
Family tells FOX 21 how the unexpected death is pulling support from across the nation.
Friends from the West Coast are coming out for her funeral on Thursday.
They knew from when she attended the University of Oregon, earning her degree in Marine Biology.
But the piece of paperwork most important to her boyfriend, a marriage license, will now be an impossibility.
“There will never be enough words to tell her everything that I want to tell her. it wouldn’t matter if I said everything before then. The opportunity to not say any of those things to her anymore is probably the hardest part,” her boyfriend, Michael Bargan, said.
The 27-year-old intended to marry Maciejeski when they saved enough money.
Instead, ulcerative colitis sucked away savings, Bargan said.
Last Friday, she died in Michael’s arms with blood clots in her lungs.
“There was more than 50 in both and one can kill you,” Bargan said. “Now there’s no money for a proper burial. They won’t give us her body, they won’t cremate her, they won’t do nothing unless you pay.”
The family is not using a locally owned funeral home.
“He is lost. He paces back and forth in the house,” Natalie Drummond, Jennifer’s sister, said.
Drummond says she raised Maciejeski when both of her parents died.
In the end, however, roles reversed.
“She was trying to go to college, but I was in an accident,” Drummond said, revealing a prosthetic leg. “She had to work so hard to work full time, sometimes three jobs to pay for college.”
“It was just the way that she was willing to give everything that she possibly could to help anybody. it didn’t matter who you were,” Bargan said, when asked why he loves her.
Without the funds to retrieve her body, family member say they are out of options and left only with what–ifs.
“All I could think about was marrying her, being by her side, spending the rest of my life with her. Walking down the aisle with her,” Bargan said.
Michael Bargan’s phone number is 515-570-0275.
He said he would be glad to hear any support or advice you have for him.
Question by Rocky B: Are Immigration Lawyers worth the money ?Are Immigration Lawyers worth the money for family class visa’s ?
I am marrying in January and the Canadian Immigration Website has a pretty well defined process on their website, making me believe paying k for someone to process paperwork is a bit excessive and unnecessary.Forgot to mention, I am a Canadian…
Answer by pianojangeeIn some cases, yes. if you have some issues, then it is better to seek expert advise and hire their service.

If you’re a barber in the District, you have to be licensed and regulated by a city board. But if you’re a tattoo artist or piercer, a certain libertarian ethos seems to govern your trade within city limits—currently, the District remains one of the last places in the country in which tattooing and piercing are wholly unregulated. that looks like it will soon change, but how dramatic the change will be is yet to be determined.
At a hearing in the D.C. Council yesterday, legislators, tattoo artists and regulators squared off over what regulations—if any—should apply to the industry moving forward. Under a bill proposed by Councilmember Yvette Alexander (D-Ward 7) and seven of her colleagues in April, tattoo artists and piercers would have to be licensed by the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs and abide by basic health and safety standards.
For some tattoo artists and parlor owners, that’s fine, but the regulations have to be drawn narrowly to recognize existing industry standards and to avoid burying small businesses in reams of paperwork and thousands of dollars in fees.
“Under controlled conditions and when performed by experienced practitioners, the risk of infection from a tattoo is minimal,” said Paul Roe, who owns Britishink Tattoos on H Street NE and has tattooed in the city for 13 years.
“In Washington D.C., reputable professional tattoo practitioners are using standard precautions to reduce blood-borne pathogen exposure to a minimum through the use of personal protective equipment, single-use sharps, correct disposal of contaminated waste, etc. Universal precautions are industry standard where each person and every point of contact in the procedure is considered potentially contaminated and treated accordingly,” he said, speaking in an authoritative tone that seemed to buck the stereotype of tattoo artists and piercers as a regulation-averse monolith.
Roe said that almost no good tattoo parlors in the District will work on anyone under the age of 18, that machines are regularly tested and that detailed disclaimers are signed by customers before a tattoo artist goes to work.
The real problem, Roe and others said, isn’t many of the existing tattoo artists or piercers that work in established shops, but rather “amateurs and hobbyists” that work from home or at weekend tattoo parties. those, they noted ironically, would be hard to regulate, new law or not.
Regardless, witnesses from DCRA, the Department of Health and the Board of Barber and Cosmetology pushed Alexander to move ahead with some basic health and safety regulations, though each department seemed to have its own idea as to what would be appropriate and who would be responsible for enforcing them. In one possible scenario, DCRA said it could license tattoo artists, while DOH would be in charge of licensing the actual establishments in which they work.
Alexander also raised the specter of testing tattoo artists, but what exactly would be tested was left to debate. While she seemed more interested in establishing a training and testing regime for their actual craft, Roe and Matt Jessup, owner of Fatty’s Tattoos in Dupont Circle, seemed to think the most important training would be in cross-contamination prevention.
“I think the only test that should be taken to qualify somebody to do body art of any kind is disease prevention, cross-contamination prevention,” Jessup said. “My concern is not the skill level of a tattoo artist, I feel like the consumer can weed out how talented somebody is or untalented somebody is. what shouldn’t be up to the consumer to weed out is whether it’s safe or not.”
According to Jessup and Roe, tattoo artists traditionally serve in apprenticeships for at least two years, and that tattoo art remains a trade that is passed down from expert to beginner.
“You can’t legislate good tattoos,” said Jessup, who opened his first shop in Maryland in 1994 before moving to the District in 1998. his experience in Maryland was instructive, though—he said that regulations were imposed there in 1997 that were welcomed by tattoo artists and parlor owners, and that he hoped Alexander would look there for guidance.
Alexander didn’t hint that she would, nor did DCRA and DOH regulators, who said that they’d be finalizing their own proposals for the bill by early next year.
It can be a challenge trying to decipher which tattoo shops are good and which ones are not. after all, they all have a sign in the window that says Tattoos. How do you tell the difference between a hack and a real tattoo artist? Spend some time in a shop just talking to people and watching before you decide to let them create your new tattoo. if you are not comfortable with their work or the atmosphere, then move along.
A good tattoo shop will always have a tattoo flash or books of their work available. Photographers and other artists are required to keep portfolios and show clients their previous work. the artists who work in tattoo shops should be held to the same standard. in addition to looking through their portfolio of tattoos, each tattoo artist should display the paperwork identifying their state certification.
Good tattoo shops, which are proud of their business’ quality, will gladly have all of the certificates on display, which address things like cleanliness and their policy on new needles. Some will post copies of the artist’s hepatitis immunization records. Stand around and watch them work for a while. Make sure that all tattoo ink, needles, and ointments are stored separately and that they are always new.
Find a place where you are comfortable. a good tattoo shop realizes that its clients may be a little nervous, especially if the tattoo is your first. if a tattoo artist tries to intimidate you or to coerce you into something that you are not comfortable with, keep shopping around. Plenty of great tattoo shops believe in customer satisfaction. Remember, your tattoo is permanent, so take the time to make sure that you are really getting what you want.
In reputable tattoo shops, an artist will tell you if they don’t feel comfortable with your design. this is the ultimate display of integrity. if a tattoo artist feels the tattoo that you want is above his or her skill level and is willing to turn down the job, then trust them. ask them for recommendations. if they can’t do it, chances are good that they know someone who can.
The best way to find good tattoo shops is by word of mouth recommendations. Check internet forums, go to trade shows and ask your friends. Find out where people are going to get great tattoo service. Remember, anybody with a machine can buy advertising space and talk about how good they are. You want to talk to their customers and find out for yourself. in the same way, if you do find a great tattoo shop, spread the word. I’m sure that the artist will appreciate the acknowledgment and the business that you bring his or her way.
