Food Tattoos For Hunger
Help us reach our goal of $150,000.00!
TattooNOW, along with an international collection of shops, will be hosting the Food Tattoos For Hunger benefit. This benefit will focus on raising money with shops doing "Food Flash" tattoos and artists donating their earnings on November 18th.Together with the public support, Food Tattoos For Hunger is going to do its part to help the millions struggling with hunger. According to the USDA, over 16 million children live in food insecure households. Our goal is to donate $150,000 to the support systems that serve those in need such as Kids Cafe, the Backpack Program and local food banks.
Many internationally acclaimed studios and artists are rising to the call such as Off The Map Tattoo,Seppuku Tattoo,Immaculate Concept Tattoo & Piercing,Calgary Tattoo,Bohemian Tattoo Club,Studio Evolve, Steve Peace, Ram Lee,Timothy Boor, Nikko Hurtado and Bob Tyrell. Along with dozens of other studios, each will be creating tattoos of food from flash and donating their earnings.
This is similar to past benefit events in which 7 artists did over 61 tattoos in 13 hours to raise $3,747 to the Emily Williston children's summer reading program. The custom for-the-day flash was created by the artists and chosen by the customer for $50 with the tattoo averaging 30-40 minutes. This year we look to create a much larger impact as a community. Also, we will be holding a virtual food drive with http://FeedingAmerica.org in which anyone can donate.
