What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.


In response to the Manchester Arena terror attack, Manchester tattoo artists have come together to show true northern spirit by launching the Manchester Tattoo Appeal. They pledged to dedicate a full day in order to tattoo as many Manchester Bee’s as possible as a lasting symbol of Manchester's courage, strength & defiance, whilst raising money for the families affected by this terrible tragedy.

There has been an overwhelming response from studios across the UK, Europe and the World who have also opened their doors in solidarity.

We are hugely grateful to all the studios and artists taking part, and we ask that all funds raised are donated through the official Manchester Tattoo appeal Just Giving page: bit.ly/MCRtattoo, so as to keep an accurate running total.

There is a minimum donation of £50, but of course anything extra is greatly appreciated.

Due to high demand we are unfortunately unable to individually respond to enquiries, however if you would like a tattoo please see our page to find out where the
nearest participating studio is, or contact your local studio to enquire.

*Note 100% of your donation will go directly to the cause – Participating Tattoo Studios are kindly donating their own ink & supplies.


If you are an artist that would like to take part please inbox us with your details!
