Tattoo For The Philippines by Things & Ink

Last week tragedy struck in the Philippines as thousands were affected by Typhoon Haiyan, destroying the lives of many people. Charities are already working hard to do all they can to help, but tattoo fans can do their bit too by taking part in the ‘Tattoo For The Philippines’ campaign highlighted by this heartwarming and informative post on the Things & Ink blog. Here you’ll find information about how tattoo artist Claire Goldilox started the campaign and intends to raise money for those affected by the typhoon and how you too can help out. Although it’s cool talking about fashion and ink, sometimes there are bigger things in the world to be concerned about, which this post demonstrates.

So those are these week’s choices, we hope you’ve enjoyed the posts and have come away from them feeling enlightened. Stay tuned next week for even more alternative fashion blogs, courtesy of us at Blue Banana!
