29 May Bee Tattoo takings go to the Charity
Tattoo studios up and down the country are offering £50 for bee tattoos, all profits are going towards the families of the victims of the Manchester Arena attack.
All the money raised goes directly to a dedicated Just Giving page set up for the families of those affected.
Please join us and get involved!
There has been an overwhelming response from studios across the UK, Europe and the World who have also opened their doors in solidarity. This was organised by Stalybridge tattooist Sam Barber, a fundraising event with each customer paying £50 to get a tattoo of a bee.
The appeal originally just started in the Manchester area but it quickly picked up in many studios across the UK, and even as far away as Australia, wanted to get involved.
Why is the bee symbolic?
The history of the worker bee as a motif for Manchester dates back to the city’s industrial past.
The worker bee has since represented the hard work and community spirit of Mancunians, and can be seen subtly incorporated into the city’s landscape including on buildings, bins and clocks.
