Charity by design with Movember body art at Norwich tattoo studio
Submitted - November 2012
True commitment to the Movember cause has been demonstrated by around 20 people at a Norwich tattoo studio.
Inkaddiction Studios, in Wensum Street, has been getting into the spirit of the men’s health campaign by offering fun Movember tattoos.
Run and owned by 23-year-old Keiron Bullen, a body piercer, the studio is offering £20 Movember tattoos and donating £5 from every tattoo to Prostate Cancer UK.
Along with tattoo artists Jamie Gibbons and Dennis Greer, they all decided that they would like to do something to raise awareness of the Movember cause.
Mr Bullen said: “Due to the success of the fundraiser we are already planning others for the new year, which could involve a parachute jump. If we can all just do something to raise awareness and raise money then at the end of the day we could help someone, and that’s what we need to concentrate on.”
To get one of the tattoos, search for “Inkaddiction Tattoo Studio – Norwich” on Facebook.
Meanwhile, with Movember moustaches now starting to show full growth, attentions are already turning to end-of-Movember parties. One of the biggest in Norwich looks set to be at Epic Studios, in Magdalen Street, from 7pm on Friday, November 30. People will be encouraged to ‘dress to suit their mo’ and the entertainment will include music from Dumbfoundus, T Bone & The Horn and Lee Vann, and comedy from Donnie Rust The Naked Busker and Dan McKee.
Photographer Chris Taylor will be taking professional photos of people’s Movember efforts for £1 and all ticket sales will be donated to Movember.
Tickets are £3.50 in advance or £7 on the door and can be purchased from the Epic box office on 01603 727727 or http://bit.ly/EPICMovember
