A group of local artists are inking clients for a good cause this Saturday at Goldstream Tattoo.
A group of four local tattoo artists, including Goldstream Tattoo co-owner Al Murray, will be inking by donation out of the shop at 201-797 Goldstream Ave. from 11 a.m. until late into the evening on Saturday, Oct. 7 to raise awareness for mental health.
“It’s something we’ve wanted to do since we opened … There’s been a ton of community support,” Murray said.
“I think we’ll have more interest than we’ll be able to support.”
A minimum donation of $100 is required for each session and all of the funds will go to the B.C. Schizophrenia Society to be used for peer support to help people with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression and psychosis.
Each session is expected take a little less than an hour, with roughly 2,000 pre-drawn designs available to choose from.
Appointments for the day will be on a first-come, first-served basis but anyone interested can check-in with a phone number and then return when it’s time.
