WILKES-BARRE TWP. — Local residents hoping to get a great deal on a tattoo and at the same time support a worthy charity came out to the Tattoo for Life fundraiser at the Wyoming Valley Mall on Saturday.

The first annual event was sponsored by Town Hall Tattoo and featured 13 specially designed tattoos at a cost of only $40, with 50 percent of the proceeds benefitting the Make-a-Wish Foundation.

“We hope to do over a hundred tattoos and send a check for $2,000 to Make-a-Wish,” said owner Chris Longo. “We’re really excited about the response today.”

The fundraiser is the brainchild of professional body piercing artist Leeann Campas, who organized the event as “a labor of love.”

The event will also be held on Sunday, May 12 at Anatomic Body Arts in Bloomsburg.
