On Sunday, November 2nd, we will be hosting a tattoo benefit to raise money for our dear friends Jenn and Brendon Whitney. Jenn was diagnosed this fall with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, a type of blood cancer. Thankfully, Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a treatable form of cancer. Once in remission, survivors are known to lead healthy, normal lives.

That said, Jenn’s ability to work during her 6 months of treatment will be very limited. She is an early childhood educator, primarily working with special needs children and low income families, and if you’ve spent any time with a roomful of toddlers, you know what a petri dish that environment can be. Chemotherapy significantly lowers the immune system and makes patients highly susceptible to germs and other illnesses. As a result, Jenn will likely need to be out of the classroom for the duration of her chemo. This benefit will raise money to help support Jenn’s family weather the difficult days ahead. 100% of our earnings go directly to them.

PHUC, CYNDI LOU, and special guest BETH POTTER will be offering $150 lucky little birds and lobster claw tattoos on Sunday, November 2nd, from 9A to 7P.  If you are interested in getting tattooed during the benefit, we encourage you to make an appointment as there are only 10 available appointment slots per artist. Please note that all benefit tattoos will be limited in design to what will take each artist no more than 1 hour from start to finish – remember, friends: this is about raising money!

Please e-mail us at tsunamitattoo@hotmail.com with questions or to schedule your benefit tattoo. If you think of it, please include the subject line “TATTOO BENEFIT.”

Thank you!

How are we doing?

October 4, 2014

As we prepare to embark on drafting our next ten-year plan for Tsunami Tattoo, we’d like to get a better sense from you, our clients, about what we’re doing right and what areas need improvement. So we’ve created a short, anonymous survey: 


It should only take about five minutes to fill out, and we would really appreciate your feedback. Thanks so much for your help!
