We pause a moment for an announcement...
Chris, who I met on jury duty, and shared his tattoo here, sent me the following message:
Dear Friends and Fans of Red Rocket Tattoo,
A very loved artist in our tattoo family has suffered a tremendous loss. His eldest daughter was tragically killed on the night of February 26th. As he and the rest of his family suffer this loss, we suffer right along side and are doing everything we can to lend support.
Red Rocket Tattoo is putting on a TATTOO DRIVE to raise funds to help with funeral arrangements, legal fees and anything else necessary to aid in the resolution of these unhappy times. We are ASKING FOR YOUR HELP! Wednesday March 4th in the Manhattan Red Rocket Tattoo Studio we will be donating all earned income towards helping our family. Red Rocket will make no profit from this day's efforts.
Along with a few scheduled appointments, we are running a crazy tattoo special and are looking for as many willing participants as possible. We will do everything to accommodate all clients and will work into the night. We will tattoo any name, any kanji, flowers, skulls etc. or any Sailor Jerry style design smaller than your palm for $100. In addition we will do any regular piercing for $20 or exotic for $40 all day long. The first ten clients get a FREE RED ROCKET T SHIRT!
PLEASE HELP US HELP OUR FAMILY! COME IN AND GET THAT TATTOO YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED. TELL ALL OF YOUR FRIENDS! TELL ALL OF YOUR ENEMIES! JUST COME IN AND SHOW SOME LOVE FOR ONE WHO LOVES YOU!
We cannot thank you enough!

The artists over at Red Rocket are top-notch. Their work has been featured on Tattoosday here.
I encourage anyone looking to get tattooed to check out this opportunity, as your participation would not only get you a great tattoo, but would also help a worthy cause.
