TBS is proud to host it’s 3rd Annual $100 Cancer Ribbon Tattoo Fund Raiser for the Incredible Daffodil Place. Over the last two years we were able to raise $15075.00 by doing 124 cancer ribbon tattoos, donations and all of our T-Shirt and print sales and this year we plan on beating last years number and were offering the mugs up too! If you are interested in being a part of this fund raiser we are now starting our list for cancer ribbons tattoos and we will be contacting those that we could not fit in last year!

All tattoos are 2″ or smaller with small modifications (we are able to add names and dates but not much else). Thank you for all your support!

To get your name on the list for the Benefit please call the Studio @ 709 754 5590 or email us:

They provide 24 rooms for patients and family as well as support, food, transport and advocacy. Since it’s opening has had 2160 guests from over 293 communities. The role that the Daffodil Place plays in helping those with Cancer is quintessential and we are more then happy to lend our talents to their fight.For more information on Daffodil Place please follow this link:
