Annual Tattoo-a-thon Battles Childhood Cancer

The second annual Tattoo-a-tho,n created by Jordan Gray in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Program in Cape Town, with the goal of helping kids battle cancer, took place on March 29. Twelve tattoo studios around South Africa participated in the event, which raised about $8,000 in 2012.

This year’s event was expected to raise even more money, with each studio donating a portion of the proceeds to the Childhood Cancer Foundation SA. This year, the event became truly national, as studios from Johannesburg, Pretoria and Durban joined those in Cape Town to raise money for the foundation.
