CHARITY MATTERS: Tattoos for a good cause
5:00pm Thursday 1st November 2012 in News
A TATTOO artist has raised nearly £2,000 for charity after carrying out a tattoo marathon.
Warren Jeffrey, 41, pictured, from Thame, more commonly known as ‘Bugs’, took part in a charity tattoo marathon on Friday and Saturday at Oxford’s Black Mumba parlour in Windmill Road.
The joint owner of the parlour had just 30 minutes to provide visitors with a tattoo sized between 1.5 inches to two inches square for a donation of £50.
In total he tattooed six people on Friday and 14 more on Saturday.
It was the culmination of a week’s worth of fundraising for charity Cash For Kids, which totalled more than £1,900.
Mr Jeffrey said: “I have never done any fundraising like this before – but I had a good idea to raise money and thought I would give it a go. I may try and do it again on an annual basis.”
