A charity tattoo day has helped to raise thousands of pounds to support the fight against cancer.
The event, organised by the team at Love Hate Tattoos studio in Catton Grove, Norwich, saw people get a cancer ribbon tattooed on themselves.
The event raised £4,052.82p for Cancer Research UK and owners - husband and wife team - Dean and Michelle Mayhew, thanked everyone for their “massive generosity”.
Mrs Mayhew, 32, said: “The support you all gave us was overwhelming - we didn’t expect to raise this much or see as many faces as we did.”
The studio opened two years ago in memory of Mrs Mayhew’s younger brother Dan Edmonds, who died four years ago after receiving a fatal blow to the head during a kick-boxing match.
Every penny raised on the day will go towards Cancer Research UK.
