Following the events of Monday night in Manchester, it’s hard to know what to do.
But people from Manchester have taken to the streets and let out a voice of strength and solidarity. Donated time and money to support those affected. It’s been great to see businesses opening their doors to and supporting police and medical staff working tirelessly in the aftermath.
I have been procrastinating, perhaps too long. Fortunately I have seen the great work that tattoo parlours all around Manchester, the North and around the country in the Manchester Tattoo Appeal. The response has been so strong with studios and parlours seeing people queuing down the street to show their solidarity and make a contribution. It’s made me realise that Tattumi could do something too.
Not everyone is old enough for a tattoo, not everyone has a significant amount of money to donate, or perhaps even find a parlour right now with any remaining bookings. I think that so many people want to contribute something and show solidarity and support for those affected, but perhaps might stop short of having a permanent tattoo.
For the next week (until 3rd June), Tattumi will be featuring 3 Manchester bee designs on the website.
These are retailing at £3.50 each – all profits from sale will go directly to the support families affected by the attack. Simply order your design and Tattumi will send out a pack of 2 temporary tattoos featuring the design. We encourage you to wear one proudly yourself and give the other to someone who means something to you.
