Tattoo studio's special festive sessions will help benefit St Andrew’s Hospice
STAFF at a tattoo studio in Cleethorpes are providing an 'ink-redible' Christmas offer to help raise money for charity.
Skinworx, in the High Street, is raising money for Grimsby's St Andrew's Hospice – which supports people with life-limiting diseases and their families – by offering special sessions.
The 12 days of Christmas event will run from Tuesday, December 11, until Sunday, December 23, and there will be a total of 144 discounted half-hour slots at the studio.
Each session will cost £20 and £5 from each will go to charity.

Studio owner Samantha Pitts said: "This is our first charity event and we are hoping to raise as much as possible.
"We started with 144 slots and we have already filled 59 of them.
"We have chosen some designs that can be completed in half an hour but we are flexible over what we can do.
"We will also allow people to book blocks of time for bigger pieces.
"If anyone has any questions about the offer they can always come into the shop or give us a call."
Although the offer does not start for another two weeks, the staff at the studio have already been collecting money.
Tattoo artist Alan Gilliatt said: "We are hoping that this is the start of an annual event.
"We have already been using the collection tin to get as much as possible.
"If we fill all the slots we will double them to make even more, but only if the interest is there.
"We haven't really got any links to the charity but because they are local and do great work we chose them.
"The offer has already been popular so I can see myself being very busy just before Christmas.
"Anyone that books a slot with us will also be given a raffle ticket with a variety of prizes available, including a free hour of studio time."
