On October 20th, 2013, Fallen Owl Tattoo Studio in Lakewood, Colorado hosted “Save a Fallen Owl” – a benefit with proceeds going to Nature’s Educators. The benefit involved more than 75 Denver locals getting owl tattoos (flash art that the studio’s staff created) and donating in support of the all volunteer run educational wildlife program. Because the event was on a first come, first serve basis, people began lining up early. By the time doors opened, there was a line that curved around the block. The cold and rain did not stop people from getting InkSpired for a good cause. Aleasha Bram from Fearless Flower Coffee warmed us all up with fabulous cups o’ joe.
In money raised from the tattoos alone, the Fallen Owl donated more than $1,800 to Nature’s Educators. The benefit included live owls on location and Nature’s Educators staff to further educate participants about the wildlife they represent. It was an event in which Denver’s community came together to get tattooed in support of a good cause. A few families of numerous generations bonded as they got their owls tattooed. There were even a couple of first-timers getting their first tattoos in support of this benefit.
The entire staff of Fallen Owl: Adam Rose, Freddie Arroyo, Chris Hamilton, Sherley Escribano, Kasja Mo, Eracema Souza and Cody donated their time and energy to making sure that this event was a success. They personally thank each and every person that contributed to this cause. Additional thanks to Studio-B-Tattooing in Marion, Indiana for participating and helping by doing owl tattoos and donating to the cause on the same date.
In addition to InkSpired Magazine, Sean Hartgrove, Moo Dog Productions, LTD. and Bella Rage from TattooInk.TV were also at the event getting press coverage. Philanthropic in nature, Fallen Owl is preparing for its 3rd Annual Tattoos for Toys Drive. From November 1st through December 1st, bring in 3 unopened toys and receive a $40 gift certificate from the studio as a “thank you”!
Stay tuned for the video coverage from Moo Dog Productions, LTD. on this event.
