Have you been thinking about getting some ink? Do you want to help out some local elementary students?
A local tattoo shop is holding an event that allows you to do both!
House of Ink Tattoos and Piercings, located on 2252 Frayser Blvd in Memphis, is holding its annual Backpacks for Tatts Drive. This drive is will be going on July 29th – 31st from 1 p.m. until 9 p.m.
The goal of this drive is to help the students of Coldwell/Guthrie Elementary School that are in need of school supplies. The Backpacks for Tatts event uses a barter system; clients trade a backpack filled with school supplies for a tattoo. If you bring in one backpack filled with the following item, you will be eligible for about a $25 tattoo. However, if you bring in more than one backpack filled with items, you can get a bigger one.
The following is a list of the required items that you must donate to be eligible for the tattoo.
