In support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month during the month of October, Good Times Tattoo Studio in East Islip and Horifudo Tattoo Studio in Smithtown will take part in a month-long “Ink For Pink” campaign. Starting October 1 at noon, customers can get a tattoo of the breast cancer ribbon at either studio done for free; in exchange, they can make checks payable to Breast Cancer Help, Inc. in the amount it would cost for the design. The campaign runs until October 31 at 8 p.m.
On October 6, Good Times Tattoo Studio will host a “tattoo marathon” between noon and 10 p.m. Those who choose a design will get their tattoo done, with all of the sales proceeds of the design going to Breast Cancer Help. There will also be limited-edition T-shirts and artwork on sale, with proceeds also going to benefit Breast Cancer Help.
“We would like to thank Good Times Tattoo Studio and Horifudo Tattoo Studio for their participation in this unique fundraising event,” said Lorraine Pace, Co-President, Breast Cancer Help, Inc. “These studios are helping to bring the issue of breast cancer awareness to the forefront by providing designs of the breast cancer ribbons for their customers. These designs will definitely get the message across in a more prominent fashion.”
Good Times Tattoo Studio is located at 9 Meroke Lane in East Islip. Horifudo Tattoo Studio is located at 1020 Jericho Turnpike in Smithtown. Those who wish to get a tattoo done must be at least 18 years old and have a valid form of identification. For more information, call Frank at Good Times Tattoo Studio at (745) 520-3075.
