NZ Earthquake Appeal

We were relayed the following message late last night from Mike Hicks of Spike at the Art studio, Plymouth. The tattoo community is renowned for its generosity and we hope that all of you who read the following can take the time to re-post or help in any way at all.

I write in the hope of raising awareness to the
recent earthquake in New Zealand.

Sadly tattoo artist, Matti Makeekan from Southern Ink,
lost his life, with his receptionist left with a broken back.
At least five other studios have been destroyed,
possibly more, a number of artists and
tattoo enthusiasts were injured.

An artist fund has been set up to aid all
concerned in the tattoo community and help
cope with the loss.
Any donations will be gratefully received,
Tattoo Artist EQ Fund Acc No-3890110425988000.

For more info re donations or how to show support,
please contact Sue Moore via, or

Our love and best wishes go out to all concerned.

Thanks for your support.

Mike, Julia and staff at Spike at the Art
