Here is what we're all about;
April is National Autism Awareness Month where we celebrate those in our lives that have autism by permanently showing our support by getting an autism themed tattoo.
Participating tattoo shops donate a portion of the tattoo cost to a local charity that provides autism services. The amount per tattoo is determined by the shop, not Ink4Autism. Shops have donated anywhere from $20 to 100% of the tattoo; again, totally up to the shop. Also, Ink4Autism does not receive any of the funds, rather they are donated to the local autism charity of their choosing. To date, participating shops have raised over $80,000 worldwide.
Last year over 275 tattoo shops participated, and have inked over 800 autism themed tattoos. We have shops participating in Canada, the US, Australia, the United Kingdom, Romania, Norway, South Africa, Germany, Hungary, Sweden and Israel and we hope to do even better. We have been profiled in the March 2013 issue of Skin & Ink Magazine and the April 2013 issue of Inked Magazine.
If your shop is interested, please contact us and we'll be happy to talk!
