Getting a tattoo to help raise money for kids battling cancer

Black Diamond Tattoo Studios in Radford is donating money this week

Some people in the New River Valley are getting inked for a good cause this week.

A Radford business is raising money for a good cause in a unique way. Black Diamond Tattoo Studios is donating money from its customers’ new ink.

The money made throughout the week will benefit childhood cancer treatment, going to Carilion Children’s Family Camp Weekend. There are more than 200 designs to chose from with prices ranging from $20-$60. Ten dollars from each tattoo goes to the donations.

After a similar event last year, the business donated $5,000 to a humane society.
