Dark Hour Ink says a flash tattooing session is just their small way of trying to help the families affected by the Humboldt bus accident.
On Sunday, the shop will be doing an open tattooing session, with all of the money from artist-designed Humboldt Broncos tattoos going towards the families. Owner Desiree Wile says that this tragedy hit close to home having both family from Humboldt and being a part of the hockey community herself, and the shop wants to help in any way that they can.
“We just wanted to do our thing. [Tattooing] is what we do on a day-to-day basis so if we can just donate a little bit of money. Like money doesn’t make happiness, but if we can help out in any way we can, that’s why I put it together.”
Right now, the two tattoo artists at the shop are working on meaningful designs to honour the Humboldt Broncos, and Wile says anyone can get involved.
“They can come down and get tattooed Sunday April 15th. We’re going to be open from 10 to 4, and we’ll be getting people in and out as quick as possible, and it will be all pre-designed tattoos.”
Wile adds that she is working on getting the designs on social media, but people can see the full designs when they drop in on Sunday.
