Autism parents have tattoos to raise awareness
Published on: 01 Aug 2016
SIXTEEN parents of children with autism have had tattoos to raise awareness of the condition.
Their effort has raised more than £2,000 for Bristol Autism Support, a local group that provides help for families of children affected by autism.
The tattoos were donated by Freak or Unique Custom Tattoos in Quakers Road, Downend. Tattoo artist Mike Heal designed and gave all of the tattoos himself, during a session of more than five hours.
“I’m really happy to do it. This is such a good cause and a nice group of people,” he said
Each participant was asked to raise at least £50 in sponsorship. The £2,176 raised will go towards providing training for volunteers and pamper sessions for parents and carers.
