Tattoo Marathon in Kelowna to raise money for Elizabeth Fry Society

Four tattoo artists will be tattooing non-stop on Saturday, March 9, but it’s all for a great cause.

In honour of International Women’s Day, Kelowna’s Jays and Arrows Tattoo Inc. is holding a 99 Red Balloons Tattoo Marathon.

From 9 a.m. until 9 p.m., the four artists will be tattooing a single red balloon on 99 different people.

Each tattoo will cost $99 and 100% of the money raised will go to the Central Okanagan’s Elizabeth Fry Society (EFS).

The EFS provides support to women and children affected by sexual abuse, exploitation or violence.

“Women and children’s services are near and dear to me,” says owner and artist Darcy Cameron.

“There was a time in my childhood when we had to call on services like Elizabeth Fry. They helped us get through a tough time and thankfully now I’m in a position to give back.”

Donations will also be accepted on the day of the event for those who want to contribute to the cause but not get inked.

In addition, participants will have their names entered into a draw for two hours of free tattoo time with Darcy Cameron.

To reserve your spot in the 99 Red Balloons Tattoo Marathon, email tattoo99redballoons@gmail.com.

Participants must be 18 years of age or older with a valid ID.
