65 Roses Project- Fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis

  • Tattoo 34 on Hawthorne 3401 Southeast Hawthorne Boulevard Portland, OR, 97214 United States (map)

This fundraiser event will be all roses, all day! 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.

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. This annual event was created by our own Douglas Lamb.

From Tattoo Artist Douglas Lamb:

The 65 Roses Project started in September of 2013 after a client told me about his family's experience with Cystic Fibrosis, and the meaning behind 'sixty five roses'. My original plan was to paint tattoo flash or roses and sell them for $65 each, with the money raised going to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's local Portland branch.   

Since then it has evolved to include dozens of incredibly talented artists from within the tattoo community donating artwork for sale as well. In the first few years we raised around $3,000.  

In May of 2016 we got together with a few tattooer friends and did our second tattoo fundraiser and we were blown away at the response. We had five tattooers working for about 14-15 hours, we did over 50 tattoos and raised $4,700!
