Tallaght Tatoo artists Tallaght Ink are hosting a fundraiser in aid of DEBRA Ireland this Sunday November 22nd. For 12 hours from 10am the artists will be running a tattoo-a-thon to raise money for the charity DEBRA Ireland.
It will be a case of all hands on deck as organisers are expecting hundreds to turn up from all over the country to get a tattoo for DEBRA Ireland. The charity supports patients and families living with the painful and rare condition epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Their logo is a butterfly as children born with EB have skin as delicate as a butterfly’s wing.
There will be seven designs to choose from – four butterfly designs, along with the words “hope” and “love” and the DEBRA butterfly logo. Tattoos are reduced in price for the day starting from €25 to €35 per tattoo. This is the second time the tattooists have organised this fundraiser and they know from past experience there will be queues of people lining up. So, if you’ve always wanted a tattoo but never knew what design, make sure to get there early.
Tallaght Ink Owner Vinny McEvoy says:
“We wanted to do something for charity coming up to Christmas and due to the success of our last event, Ink for Autism, we decided to do another tattoo marathon but this time for DEBRA Ireland, a great charity doing amazing work for people living with this painful skin condition. We will have all our own tattoo artists and some guest artists there on the day to tattoo as many people as we can. The artists give up their time for free as they know it’s for a great cause. It’s first come first served so we would encourage people to turn up early so they don’t miss out.”
