Tattoo for charity
Interested in getting a small tattoo and help out a charity, too? Expert Body Mod’s 2nd Tattoos for the Red Deer Food Bank is running an event on Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Individuals can bring in a four-by-four-inch tattoo design and for $80 and a nonperishable food item, they’ll get a tattoo. All proceeds will go to the food bank. There is a limit of one tattoo per person so the shop can get as many people tattooed as possible. The address is #202 4734 50th St. in Red Deer.
