OCEAN SPRINGS, MS (WLOX) - People on the coast walked away with some new body art the held an underlying meaning. On Saturday, Dragon Den's Tattoos in Ocean Springs held the second annual tats for a cause.
It's not uncommon to see a busy tattoo parlor full of people anxiously waiting to add to their collection of body art. Among the choices at the Dragon Den were a few that went far beyond the surface.
"A few people have come in wanting to get just regular tattoos. We've told them that we're doing a benefit and that we're doing the $30 awareness ribbon tattoos. It makes us feel real good," said tattoo artist Jason Brodhead.
"We are doing our second annual tattooing for a cause benefit. All the proceeds are going to a little boy named Brodie who has Mitochondrial Degenerative Disease," said owner Cecilia Kinkade.
Brodie Haselden, who was also diagnosed with Pierre Robin Syndrome, was born 2 months premature. He weighed one pound, six ounces.
The complications that followed left his family with a long list of hospital bills.
That's why the owner's at the Dragon Den thought their store would be perfect for this year's benefit.
"Last year we heard about a little girl named Rebecca who had Leukemia. We decided on a spur of the moment decision to do a benefit and raise money to help with medical expenses. It was a huge success with only a weeks worth of planning. So we decided to do it again this year and put a little more time and effort into it," said Kinkade.
That extra time and effort paid off in the end. Partnering with Big Hoss Barbeque, they raised $2,300.
"I hoping they get the money to pay some of the hospital bills off. To help the mother and father, to help with some Christmas. Also to show them that they have friends and family outside of their regular friends and family," said Brodhead.
