Local Tattoo Shop Aims to Help Abused Children
People are going under the needle to benefit a good cause at Gulf Coast Tattoo in Waveland.
For 13 hours straight, the tattoo company has been inking people up. All proceeds are going to Court Appointed Special Advocates, also known as CASA, an organization that helps neglected and abused children have a voice in court.
Tons of walk-in customers have been donating the $20 for tats. Scott Wiecek, owner of Gulf Coast Tattoo, tells News 25 his wife is a CASA volunteer and they both wanted to do their part to help out the community. “I think that it’s really in need of some help. Funding for these things is hard to find, hard to come by. So anything these people can do to contribute directly is always going to help.”
If you have been wanting to get a tattoo, this is your chance to get your ink while helping out a good cause. Gulf Coast Tattoo will end the benefit at midnight.
