Are you looking to kick off the new decade with some fresh ink on that unfettered piece of body real estate?
Well, now is the perfect time, with FLT Tattoo Studio set to host a flash day next month with ALL profits going to bushfire relief.
The Hamilton-based inkery will be throwing open its doors and firing up the tattoo guns on Saturday 15 February and artists will be tattooing from their original flash with and Australia flora and fauna theme.
The best part is that all profits from each piece will be donated to the WIRES Wildlife Rescue Emergency Fund and Red Cross Disaster Relief.
“Millions of animals are dead, people have lost their lives and more are missing, homes have been lost and over 6 million hectares of bush, forest and parks have burned as a result of killer bushfires terrorising Australia,” a post on Facebook promoting the event read.
“We want to do our bit to help and are holding a Flash Day on Saturday the 15th February to raise money for the WIRES Wildlife Rescue Emergency Fund and for the Red Cross Disaster Relief.
“We hope you can come along to our flash day and help us raise funds for this worthy cause but if you can’t make it to our flash day you can donate to WIRES directly at https://www.wires.org.au/ or to the Red Cross directly at https://www.redcross.org.au/…/disaster-relief-and-recovery-…“
The designs will be posted a week before the event with set prices listed on the day. But, in the meantime check out the artist’s Instas – @eddylou, @sophielewistattoos, @brookesteele_tattoos, @siarnthecatwitch, @jadelomaxart @paulmartintattoo, @jcmtattoo for a sneak peek at what to expect on the day.
