More Fundraisers for Japan Relief
Last week we wrote about fundraising for relief efforts in Japan that are being organized within the tattoo community. Here's an update:
* The Stand with Japan shirts are now available. Designed by Horitaka and Chad Koeplinger, the shirts can be ordered online or directly purchased at State of Grace, Strong Tattoo, and Yu-Ai Kai Senior Service (all located in San Jose, CA). US orders are $25, and for those beyond, the shirts are $35.
* Many tattoo artists are also auctioning off artwork. Tattoo Art for Japan has a list of some auctions, largely by German artists.
* In NYC, Dan Marshall of Tribulation Tattoo is holding a silent auction online of his paintings that will run until midnight Wednesday, March 23.
* And there are plenty of other sales and tattoo events being listed every day on the Tattooers for Japan Facebook page.
UPDATE: Beyond tattoo artists, some heavily tattooed Yakuza are helping out according to The Daily Beast.
