Pieta House Charity Event
On Saturday the 17th of November across our two studios on 15 Wellington Quay and 19 Parliament Street, our yearly Suicide Prevention charity drive in aid of Pieta House will be taking place from 12pm-6pm! Tickets will be dispensed on a first come first serve basis, so arrive early to avoid disappointment.
We will be Tattooing ‘Self-love’ on the day for a donation of €50 which will go directly to this incredible organisation. In the last two years we’ve raised up to €25k and we hope that with your help we can continue to tackle this massively important national issue.
We chose this years motif of self-love because we believe that self-compassion and empathy for one’s own well being is the bedrock for a healthy mental state. Taking the time to invest in yourself, caring and nurturing and cultivating your spiritual, emotional and physical welfare is the key to maintaining a healthy mind.
As always, there’ll be food, entertainment and a lot of positive vibes on the day. This year we’ll also be adding an online donation facility- so if you can’t make it down on the day you can donate remotely. Remember, you don’t need to get inked on the day in order to make a donation!
Talk on Self Love
As a part of our annual Charity Tattooing event in aid of Pieta House, we are going to wrap up the day with a talk on SELF LOVE.
We are blessed to have our health and wealth and feel a responsibility to be proactive about the wellbeing of our community. For some people, it is a strange concept to comprehend and hard to get a grasp of. It takes courage and support from the people around us. It is an honour to provide the space and bring along amazing human beings to share the message of SELF LOVE.
