P.INK DAY 2015: Announcing Cities & Artists for Survivors of Breast Cancer day 2015

Announcing that Day 2015 is coming to 13 North American cities on the weekend of October 10. This year we’ve enlisted 45 artists across our network to ink mastectomy tattoos for 45 remarkable breast cancer survivors. WHAT IS P.INK DAY? Day (“pea-ink day”) is our all-volunteer day of healing with ink. And more: it’s our make-a-wish day focused on an amazing experience for breast cancer survivors, which culminates with a mastectomy tattoo to help survivors reclaim some of the personal property that breast cancer stole.

Anyone wishing to bring Day to their area must first participate as a volunteer in a prior Day. REPUTATION EQUITY. All artists working with us must come recommended by other artists ... Read More »

The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum is the first museum that is totally dedicated to tattooing. It shows the world’s largest tattoo collection, collected by Henk (Hanky Panky) Schiffmacher. Fighting tooth and nail along side of Henk is his lovely wife Louise ‘The Queen’ Schiffmacher. In the midst of their year-long battle to save the Museum, Louise recently got news that she has liver cancer and needs a transplant. (Letter from Louise: Now they need our support more than ever. That’s where we come in! We have recently teamed up with an Non-Profit Foundation based here in Huntington Beach, CA called “Fxck Cancer” a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Together, I think all of us in the tattoo community, along with Fxck Cancer can raise the funds needed to help out Louise, Henk and the Foundation…  Read More »
