Tattoo Flash day
On Sunday the 10th March my wonderful cousin Dean and his awesome partner Claudia arranged a flash day of tattooing at Black Letter Tattoo in Gloucester.
Claudia and Dean even managed to get the event some press and some much appreciated publicity for the fundraiser and EDS. To read the article follow the link: https://www.gloucestershirelive.co.uk/news/gloucester-news/tattoo-marathon-taking-place-gloucesters-2626750
A big thank you to Kim from Gloucestshire Live who took the time to research and write this article.
4 tattoo artists took part donating their time and skill. They tattooed from 10am to 10pm with a few extra people coming on another day as they were so booked out.
A huge thank you to all the tattoo artists working on the day, Dean Eberhardt, Chey Heyden (who travelled from Wales to be involved), Lewis Turner and Jack Collis. And a huge thank you Deans friends James, Bela, Pete, Claudia and Ricky who all played a big part in making the day run smoothly and making it extra special! And of course a massive thank you to everyone who went and got a tattoo and supported.
Sadly I was too sick to go but my brother Ben (pictured left) went with some pals on my behalf and got 2 tattoos and said it was very busy and a great atmosphere!
My brother also told me that Deans partner Claudia was managing the day, clip board in hand! Thank you so much again Claudia :-)
Deans friend Ricky was there generously selling band merch in aid of Chance4Charlie and helping promote the event and fundraising campaign. His band is called Elessar and you can check them out at: www.elessaruk.com
Check out some of the incredible tattoos inked on the day. Pictures taken by James Musker.
James Musker also created some awesome paintings for the day.
The event was a huge success and all the tattoo artists were tattooing for most of the day/evening. They raised an outstanding £4560.
