Local Tattoo Shop Giving Back

4-18 tattoo fundraiserMEDFORD, Ore. – A local tattoo shop is raising money for one of Portland’s biggest child-care charities.

Rogue Tattoo is planning a fundraising event for next month. On May 17th customers can come in and get a tattoo of their child’s name for $80. Nearly all (90%) of that money will go to the Ronald McDonald House.

The owner of the shop, Josh Ludlow, says he became motivated by the loss of his son. He says after the charity provided care and support for his family, he knew he wanted to give back.

“Our eyes were opened and our hearts were turned to something that was so amazing and giving that if I didn’t give back, I think it would just haunt me for the rest of my life,” said Ludlow.

The fundraiser event will take place all day on May 17th. Ludlow says that’s a day before what would have been his son’s second birthday.

Walk-ins are welcome that day for anyone who wishes to get a tattoo of their child and give to the charity.
