BRISTOL — Some local residents are making a bold statement, in honor of breast cancer victims, patients, and survivors.
Katie McDonald, for example, got inked for breast cancer awareness. Boardwalk Ink in Bristol tattooed a one-and-a-half inch pink ribbon on her shoulder at no charge. They simply asked for at least a $10 donation to the American Cancer Society.
“My grandma on my dad's side is a 2-time cancer survivor, breast cancer, so I kind of wanted to get that for her,” said McDonald.
Boardwalk Ink has been inundated with people who want a pink ribbon tattoo. They gave more than 200 free tattoos the first week.
