LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – Meghan’s Mountain Charitable Foundation donates money to patient care for those who are battling cancer.
Tattoo Charlie’s invited community members to come out and support tattoos against cancer.
Jacqueline Higgins got her very first tattoo on Sunday.
She said it is in honor of her neighborhood cat Roman, that she and her neighbor Stacy had a close relationship with.
“We were tore up. He had kidney, aids and we had to have him put down and he was our baby so the picture of the cat reminded us of him,” Higgins said.
Stacy got the tattoo as well.
They say it’s great to do something so small that can help make a big impact in someone’s life.
Cecilia Virtue works at Tattoo Charlie’s of Lexington.
She said this day not only helps the foundation but has benefits for those who participate.
“I feel that everyone who comes in here has a story of somebody in their life and sometimes even several people in their lives who have passed from cancer,” Virtue said. “I think that people coming out here and also having a story to share, I think that’s pretty important.”
There were about 20 cancer themed tattoos for clients to chose from including the phrase “cancer sucks”, a ribbon, butterfly, paw print and many more.
Tattoo Charlie’s asked people for a $30 minimum but Virtue said most people gave a lot more.
