This fundraiser event will be all roses, all day, to raise money for cystic fibrosis. Come in and get a rose tattoo and support a great cause. All the rose flash (created special for this event and not normally available) will be donation based with a $100 minimum, you can choose how much more you want to donate. All proceeds go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Oregon Chapter. This annual event was created by our own Douglas Lamb.
What to expect: Doors open at 11am and it will be first come, first served. There will be flash (pre-designed) roses to choose from. Some of the flash may be posted to view before the day but most will only be available at the shop for this event only.
Sixty-five roses started when tattoo artist Douglas Lamb in 2013 had a client ask for a rose tattoo in honor of his sister. A rose because to the small children diagnosed with the disease, the unwieldily words cystic fibrosis, can instead sound like sixty-five roses. Click here to learn more.
