On Saturday, Om Tattoo will be hosting the sixth annual “Ink to End Lyme” event.
Tattoo shops around the country work in February to raise funds that can be used to improve testing and treatment of the disease.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that Lyme is diagnosed in more than 470,000 Americans each year.
Emily Drayer, a tattooist, said that it is important to give back to the community whenever possible. “In today’s society, most people don’t care if it directly impacts them. That’s what I think is one of the best things about an event such as this. Even if Lyme disease is not something you are familiar with, it’s still possible to support a worthy cause and help the community.
The event will run from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. Walk-ins and appointments are both welcome.
