As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Tattoo, a tattoo and piercing shop in Sherbrooke, held a special fundraiser on Wednesday for the Canadian Cancer Society.
Amélie Dostie, a co-owner of Tattoo, told The Record that one of her colleagues proposed the idea last April. The entire team, six full time artists and several support staff, eagerly jumped on board in support of breast cancer awareness and the Canadian Cancer Society.
The event, which they called Pink Ribbon Day, brought in 63 clients, Dostie shared. She said tattoo artists normally see between one to five clients every day. On Wednesday, Dostie personally inked 17 clients, noting it was a rewarding, albeit exhausting, day of tattooing.
