East Coast Tattoos, Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape
If you read the news, you probably already know how important it is to be an organ donor –organ donations help save many lives every year. To help create more awareness and encourage locals to become organ donors, East Coast Tattoos in Port Elizabeth will be giving free TELL tattoos on 16 May.
Yes, you can now get that tattoo you have always wanted, but it will have a greater meaning as it is for a worthy cause, which organ donation is. According to the Organ Donor Foundation of South Africa, there are approximately 4 300 South African adults and children awaiting a life-saving organ and cornea transplant.
Originally known as East Coast Kustoms, East Coast Tattoos are the longest running tattoo parlour in Port Elizabeth to date. So, you will be in safe and professional hands when you visit their shop at the Baywest Mall in Port Elizabeth.
TELL stands for ‘Transplant Education for Living Legacies’. The campaign focuses on creating awareness for organ donors with the tattoo symbolising support for this generous act.
TELL your story with East Coast Tattoos
The TELL logo incorporates quotation marks (“) for their campaign. As in literature, you cannot start a conversation without them, and the conversation is the most important part of organ donation.
The campaign functions similarly to the semicolon (;) tattoo, which is used to send a message of affirmation and solidarity against suicide, depression and any other mental health issues.
Customers will be able to get their free TELL tattoo at East Coast Tattoos on 16 May from 12pm until 5pm. They will be taking walk-in clients so no bookings are necessary, however tattoos will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis.
Any add-ons customers would like to put on the tattoo will be charged. The tattoo is micro-sized – which is especially ideal for anyone wanting to get a feel of tattooing before they get a bigger tattoo. It will also only be place on limbs, no other body part.
