Tattoo fundraiser benefits Bangor Humane Society

Written by

BANGOR - Diversified Ink in Bangor is helping out the Bangor Humane Society once again this year, one tattoo at a time.

The Humane Society could always use food and supplies for the animals.

This is the second year Diversified Ink is partnering with them to help them raise money for supplies.

Wednesday, for a $50 donation, people could choose from a list of stencil tattoos artists drew up.

"I just think there's a big call for it. It's not just for, you know, the younger people today. A lot of it is for the elderly who have animals who they can't always feed at times during the winter when, you know, they have to pay for heating," said Ed Sheffer, owner and president of Diversified Ink.

"Their budgets are really small, so this kind of helps contribute to all of that and also helps take care of the animals that are coming in that they are getting from other places," Sheffer said.

Last year they tattooed around 70 people.

They hoped to do more this time around.
