EVANSVILLE, In. (WEHT) — A local business is working to eliminate student lunch debt in a colorful way.
Crescent City Tattoo and Museum in Evansville gave tattoos to raise money to pay off thousands of dollars in lunch debt for the EVSC.
Tattoos were $100, and all money raised is being donated.
Some of the tattoos were even lunch themed.
“I think we’ve seen a resurgence of small businesses opening in Evansville in the last 3 years or so, and I think all those people who operate those businesses are also are wanting to give back and put back into their community,” said Crescent City Tattoo co-owner Heather Vaught. “So, I think it speaks a lot about shopping local and going to locally owned restaurants and locally owned shops because those are the people hwo are going to invest back into the community.”
About 75 people were signed up for tattoos by 3 p.m. Sunday.
