Update on our fundraiser in association with Act for Meningitis

Last Sunday, we had a fundraiser in association with Act for Meningitis Ireland in memory of Ross' daughter, Lola. 
We opened the doors at 12pm and by that time, there was a que around the corner of the street. It was fantastic to see so many people from Limerick and all over the country supporting our day! There was tickets on sale all day for our raffle, it proved very popular as there was some amazing prizes up for grabs!

Ross Nagle, Paul O'Rourke, Jesse Gordan, Eric Zona and Damion Ross were the men that were looking after business and did over 200 tattoos between the 5 of them over 14hours! Some people were waiting up to 9hours which we were overwhelmed by and we are delighted that we got to everyone! 

The last tattoo started at 2.45am with the photo below taken with our beautiful family at 4am! It was time to go home then! 

Monday evening, the figure raised was at nearly 20k but over the last week, the donations have continued to come in and we are in the middle of our online auction now! 

Thank for to every single person that donated, stood in line, supplied food, coffees etc, sold/bought raffle tickets, the list is endless... we are still overwhelmed and eternally grateful!

Save the date for Sunday, June 14th. We will be having a fund raiser in memory of Lola, Ross's daughter, in association with ACT for Meningitis Ireland to create awareness all over the country. We will be doing €50 butterfly tattoos which there will be a sheet of designs to choose from. There will be raffles with various prizes, face painting for the kids and an auction. Donations will also be welcome on the day and 100% of money raised will go directly to ACT for Meningitis Ireland on behalf of Lola. If you would like to donate any painting, prints, or vouchers, please send them to 44 Wickham Street, Limerick, every little helps. This will also be filmed by RTE for an upcoming documentary that we are involved in. Thank you in advance, we hope to see everyone!

Last Saturday was like any other Saturday here at Allstar (or so we thought), both Ross and Paul were busy all day, 80's music pumping, customers having a laugh! Paul created a tattoo on a lovely man from Cork that has now caught the worlds attention and we could not be prouder!!! It has been reposted thousands of times, been featured in numerous online well known websites, along with tattoo forums and other social media sites!!! Here is the picture of the tattoo below! You can check out Paul's work, along with Ross's, on our Facebook page "ALLSTAR INK TATTOO" or on our Instagram page "ALLSTARTATTOO_IRELAND".

Hey all! So as some of you might have noticed, we are undergoing a complete make over at the moment. We started with the outside of the shop, which is completed. A lot of work has gone into this and we could not be happier with the end result.  All the signs are hand painted , even our fancy girl heads! We definitely will not be missed now! The inside is in progress at the moment and we do apologise for the disruption but it will be worth it once it is all done! We have a few surprises in store so we will post pictures once completed!
Christmas is only a few weeks away and we have vouchers available in shop, perfect gift for any occasion!!! 

Over and out, 
Allstar crew!
