Who: Helios Tattoo Supply is proud to announce its first annual community fundraiser for suicide awareness and prevention called “Make More Birthdays,” to benefit the National Suicide Prevention Hotline.
What: The “Make More Birthdays” event is a 24-hour family-friendly tattoo-a-thon event to support suicide awareness and prevention. The Helios Tattoo Supply Fundraiser will include world-class guest artists, tattooing marathons, food, and family-friendly entertainment.
During the 24-hour tattoo marathon, attendees can pick a tattoo from a list of supplied tattoo options and schedule their time to have their tattoo done by one of our team Helios tattoo artists.
When: The event will take place on Saturday, August 18, 2018, at 11:00 am and run until 11:00 am Sunday EST.
Where: Helios Tattoo Supply will host the event at it’s Long Island office, located at 3180 Express Dr. S Unit AB, Islandia, NY 11749.
Why: Suicide is a bigger issue than most people realize, affecting people of every income level, race, and religion. It is the second leading cause of death in the US for people ages 15-34, and every day, approximately 121 Americans take their own life. Education can lead to prevention, allowing us to recognize the signs in our loved ones before it’s too late. To help raise both awareness of the issue, and money to support prevention education, Helios has created a signature tattoo ink called Suicide Black.
100% of the proceeds for this event will go toward raising awareness for suicide prevention. Additionally, a percentage of all sales of suicide black ink goes toward suicide prevention.
