Tattoo for a Cause this weekend

Posted: Updated:
BOWLING GREEN, OH (Toledo News Now) -

Anyone who gets a cancer ribbon tattoo this weekend at Studio 14 in Bowling Green is helping a local non-profit organization.

Kele Pallitta lost her 7-month-old son to cancer, and now she's made it her mission to help families who are dealing with the same. She puts together baskets filled with goodies and delivers them to various hospitals.

This Saturday, she's having an event called "Tattoos for a Cause" at Studio 14.

The doors open at 9 a.m. Saturday and will stay open as long as people are coming in. The first 10 people through the door will get a $50 gift certificate toward their tattoo.

Pallitta says there are a ton of door prizes, there will be music, and temporary tattoos for those who don't want to commit to a real one.

The best part: 100 percent of the proceeds will go to Elias Adin's Comforting Hearts.

"I kind of went to [Studio 14] asking if they want to do this event, and just a percentage of each tattoo go to the charity," Pallitta said. "They decided on what they wanted to donate."

Participants can get a cancer ribbon tattoo of any color, or a tattoo of Elias Adin's Comforting Hearts logo.
