Each year, we at Mt. Idy choose one Saturday to work our tails off, tattoo everyone we possibly can, then donate the proceeds to a local group or organization. The first year we tried it out we donated to the Montrose library. Last year our group was the Montrose Riverfront Museum. This year we are working to help a group that is a crucial part of our education system, and that is the music program at Central Lee High School, specifically the marching band.
We will be opening our doors an hour early, at 11 am, in hopes of accommodating more tattoos, and will be tattooing until roughly 8 pm so everyone can head down to see William Elliott Whitmore play at the Montrose Watermelon Festival that night.
If you’ve are a new customer, a loyal client, or simply a loyal member of the community and would like to see your hard earned cash go towards a good cause and get a tattoo in return, please come down and get tattooed or just drop a donation in the jar. This project will allow Central Lee’s marching band to purchase some much needed equipment and sheet music for their program.
Here’s a sample of what we’ve been up to lately:
