P.ink Day Philadelphia
P.ink Days are private events that have been taking place in cities across North America since 2013, where tattoo studios close their doors for a day and artists donate their time and talent to provide decorative tattoos to breast cancer mastectomy survivors and previvors – whether reconstructed or not. The purpose is to provide these women, who apply for and are selected through our annual sign-up process, with an alternative healing opportunity that they may not have access to or be able to afford on their own. Recipients are paired with qualified tattoo artists who donate their time and talent to create designs of superior artwork. It is through this process that we can raise awareness of this unique and empowering option - inspiring others to seek out this healing alternative on their own. These amazing and empowering events result in recipients reclaiming their bodies and discovering a newfound beauty in themselves.
I know firsthand the impact of participating in a P.Ink Day. After two bouts with cancer in 4 years, I received a tattoo in 2021. It allowed me to continue healing and focus on the beauty of the tattoo, not the scar and what I'd been through.
As these events are all volunteer driven, we are looking to you to help us cover our costs of hosting these events,
Our goal is to create all-out incredible and special experiences for these women, who have been through more than many can imagine. P.ink Days are about more than getting a tattoo, they are end to-end healing experiences. Our artists and volunteers are not just donating their time and talents for the day, they are cultivating an experience that is going to see these women go back to their lives in a new way and impact them in ways far greater than anything we can see outwardly.
Your donation will help us cover the costs of food and beverages for all participants, decorations, printing costs, thank you gifts for our artists, and special gifts for our recipients.
We thank you from the bottom of our collective P.ink hearts for your consideration.
