Tattoo You, Boston

bledimageVolunteering is about giving what you have to those in need. It’s about feeling good through giving and making a difference. We are always amazed at the variety and creativity of volunteers, but this story really caught our eye.

Last year after the Boston Marathon bombings, a group of tattoo artists stepped up to donate all proceeds of Boston-themed tattoos to the One Fund. Now there’s an exhibition of photographs of those tattoos, Bled for Boston, opening this evening and up through the month of April, at the Boston Center for Adult Education. The photographs are by Chris Padgett, a BCAE instructor. Here’s a Boston Magazine article about the tattoo campaign.

And, why yes, we’d love to see your Boston Strong tattoo!
