Tattooist to repay Japan
A TATTOOIST is to give something back to the country that has helped earn her living by holding a charity event.
Debbie Horabin of Armadillo Ink in Bassingbourn decided to organise a Tattoos for Japan day to raise money for the nation’s earthquake relief fund.
Debbie said: “Japanese art is extremely popular and has been the inspiration for so many tattoos I have done over the years, so organising this event is me giving a bit back.
“Tattooists all over the world have been talking on the internet about how we have made so much money from Japanese designs so quite a few of us have decided to do something about it and raise some money.
“I have more or less made a living from Japanese art, so putting a bit of money back was the least I could do for such a terrible disaster.”
