What do you get when you combine a super talented tattoo artist and reality TV star and the ASPCA?
A second chance for some beautiful animals at a new life! (And a great day out filled with new homes and new ink!)
I first saw Tattoo Artist Megan Massacre’s awesome work when she starred on N.Y. Ink and was awed by her talents. Her super cool NYC store GRIT N GLORY has incredible clothing, accessories and more for rockers and her big heart equals her huge talent.
Megan developed a “Tats For Tails” event, in conjunction with the NYC ASPCA, at her Grit and Glory tattoo studio at 186 Orchard Street in NYC. “Tats For Tails” gives tattoo lovers the unique opportunity to get a rare appointment with Megan and members of her awesome staff (without the wait list) at a discounted price of $100 and receive a phenomenal tattoo. 100% of all proceeds go directly to the ASPCA as well as proceeds from limited edition shirts being sold in store and online. The day extends itself past Grit N Glory and offers animals for adoption from the ASPCA, games, fun, and an awesome experience with cool people and cool animals.
The last event happened in April. “We had an overwhelming response, more people then we could imagine!” Grit and Glory posted on Facebook. ” Thank you so much everyone that took the time to come out and get tattooed, donate, adopt, and simply support a great cause helping the @aspca finding dogs and cats in need good homes! This was our biggest event yet!”
Megan tells PGR about her artistic history, her love of animals and why she decided to use her incredible talents to help these animals that need it most. Pets Get Rocked is psyched to welcome TV star, tattoo goddess and animal advocate Megan Massacre to the PGR podcast!
