temp tattoos, good hearts

temp tattoos, good hearts

I got to read about it on Saturday while on my way to my fav half-marathon of the year and it really made me smile. A woman with Down syndrome comes regularly to a tattoo shop to get some temp tattoos applied by the owner of the shop. How many people would actually go for it instead of just laughing it off or treating the woman rudely? Seemingly it’s not a big deal and yet it makes a huge difference! As the tattoo artist put it himself:Β β€œIf you just do one thing for one person every day that makes them smile, then that’s your day.”

It’s also a good piece of advice to all of us tattooed and treated badly – kill’em with kindness and just being good both as a person and as an employee!

tattoos can make a difference, too!

The article about an 11-year-old boy who wanted to commit suicide because he was bullied for what he likes – My Little Pony toys – struck a cord! No one should be bullied or persecuted for what they like or believe in! A big thumbs-up then for the tattoo artists from this shop who decided to step up and support the boy: ‘boy inspires mean lookin guys [to get] My Little Pony tattoos.’

As one of the tattooers said: “Tattoos are about freedom of expression. Michael should have been free to like My Little Pony if he wanted to.” Amen to that, eh? πŸ™‚

On a similar note, today I came across an article about another alone/ friendless boy who’s going to turn 11 soon. His Mum decided to create a FB page (and this time no words from me about FB, promise!) to show him that he has loads of friends from all over the world after all. If anyone who reads this wants to help, then you can either go and visit Colin’s FB page or send him b-day wishes via post (his address is on his FB). I and my little and awesome niece are definitely going to send best wishes Colin’s way! πŸ™‚
