I will Be working this Tattoo Charity Event for cancer in Huntington Beach, all day sunday with a bunch of my friends. I proud to be able to do a small part in such an important event.

By Thomas Morgan
What up y’all, for those who don’t know who I am, my name is Thomas Morgan from HB Tattoo in Southern California. As most of you already know, on November 21st the Amsterdam Tattoo Museum was taken away from all of us, doors locked forbidding access and collection taken hostage! The Amsterdam Tattoo Museum is the first museum that is totally dedicated to tattooing. It shows the world’s largest tattoo collection, collected by Henk (Hanky Panky) Schiffmacher. Fighting tooth and nail along side of Henk is his lovely wife Louise ‘The Queen’ Schiffmacher. In the midst of their year-long battle to save the Museum, Louise recently got news that she has liver cancer and needs a transplant. (Letter from Louise: http://ow.ly/gQj7f.) Now they need our support more than ever. That’s where we come in! We have recently teamed up with an Non-Profit Foundation based here in Huntington Beach, CA called “Fxck Cancer” a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization. Together, I think all of us in the tattoo community, along with Fxck Cancer can raise the funds needed to help out Louise, Henk and the Foundation… 

Here is the plan: Our goal is to raise over $200,000.00 in a 72 hour period. How are we gonna do that? We are going to make Tattoo HISTORY by setting the Guinness Book of World Records of most tattoos by a group of 50 artists in a 72 hour period. Per the Guinness guidelines, all tattoos must be the same design so we will be using the “F skull C” from the Fxck Cancer logo (See below). The tattoos must be 1.25 x 3 inches, have a minimum of two colors so we will do black with multiple grey-tone shades, and must be on a first-come-first-served basis. Every tattoo has to be recorded for Guinness Book eligibility.

 Now in order to set the Guinness World Record of most tattoos in a 72 hour period and hit our goal we are going to need 50 artists total. 25 artists will be working at one time, putting in three 12 hour shifts over the 72 hour period, each artist hopefully doing about two tattoos an hour. Each tattoo will be $100 donation per customer(remember this is for charity). If each of us do only one tattoo for each hour we work it would be a total of 36. That’s $2500.00 an hour for 72-hours which equals a minimum total of $180,000 raised. Well known and famous artists will be the attraction and equal record-breaking results if you ask me. So if we can get everyone’s support to start hyping and getting the homies to show up I think we can make this dream a reality. Also, on top of the 50 artist needed we will need helpers as well to help set up, break down, etc… So if any apprentices are out there that would like to give us a hand this goes out to you too!
