2nd annual Tattoo-A-Thon


What a fantastic initiative!

Last year Tattoo-A-Thon raised over R70 000.00.  This year they aim to raise R500 000.00 by creating a recording breaking 1000 tattoos in 1 day!

From the Tattoo-A-Thon website –

The project originated out of an education course called the Self Expression & Leadership Program curated by {Landmark Education},  following the Landmark Forum.  In order for the participants in the program to graduate, each participant must complete a community-orientated project using the structure taught throughout the program.  Jordan Gray took part in this program in 2012 and what turned out to be a cool idea has snowballed into something with a life of its own.

So how does it work?

R700 gets you an hour of ink time and a set size tattoo.  The funds raised from the event go directly to {CHOC}.   The organisation does not receive funding from government and rely heavily on donations from caring corporates, individuals and parents of children with cancer.  Donations and fund raising projects like Tattoo-a-thon are therefore the lifeblood of the organisation.

How do you book?

Contact one of the participating studios in {Jozi}, {Cape Town} or Durban and book your slot.  That simple.
