how can i help?

South Africas professional Tattoo studios and their artists are currently out of work and struggling to cope financially due to hard lockdowns. We need donations to achieve our goal of getting money to these studios and artists so that they can put food on their tables, and have a place to work once the government deems it safe to do so. If you love tattoos as much as we do, please help our industry survive this crisis and donate.

Why Should You Donate?

We are living in an uncertain time. As an industry we are waiting, and hoping to return to work but in the meantime we cannot support ourselves or our families outside of tattooing.
If you have a tattoo, or you just love tattoos, please consider donating a small amount to protect the future of our craft.
We hope to help as many professional Tattoo Artists and studios as possible through these scary times so they can return to work when it is safe to do so.
Until then, we really need your help.
