Inflicting Ink and 401 Motoring will Team up to Host
a Blood Drive for the Rhode Island Blood Center

Portsmouth, RI March 19th-20th 2011 — Inflicting Ink Tattoo, a one of a kind mobile tattoo studio based out of Portsmouth, RI, will be teaming up with 401 Motoring to host a blood drive for the Rhode Island Blood Center.

Inflicting Ink Tattoo will be set up at the 401 Motoring parking lot from 10am until all scheduled tattoos are completed. The Rhode Island Blood Center will be on site from 10am-2pm on Saturday, March 19th and 20th collecting blood donations. Inflicting Ink teamed up with the Rhode Island Blood Center last November to help dispel the myth that “you cannot donate blood if you have a tattoo”.  The drive proved to be successful for both parties; therefore a two-day blood drive/tattoo event will help kick off the spring season.

Participants can donate blood and either set up a tattoo appointment later in the day (Jeff will decide the amount of time needed in between to ensure safety for all clients) or schedule an appointment at the shop for a later date. Individuals may schedule tattoo appointments with Jeff prior to the event, but all walk-ons are welcome. All donors will receive a free Inflicting Ink T-shirt.

 

 

Inflicting Ink Tattoo and Cardi’s Furniture will Team up to Host a Blood Drive for the Rhode Island Blood Center

South Kingstown, RI. November 6, 2010 — Inflicting Ink Tattoo, a one of a kind mobile tattoo studio based out of Portsmouth, RI, will be teaming up with Cardi’s Furniture to host a blood drive for the Rhode Island Blood Center. Jeffrey Goyette, renowned tattoo artist and owner of Inflicting Ink Tattoo Shop, created the traveling studio.

Inflicting Ink Tattoo will be set up in the South County Commons parking lot near Cardi’s Furniture from 9:30am until all scheduled tattoos are completed. The Rhode Island Blood Center will be on site from 10am-2pm collecting blood donations. The concept of the day will be “give blood while you wait to get tattooed”. Participants can donate blood and either set up a tattoo appointment later in the day (Jeff will decide the amount of time needed in between to ensure safety for all clients) or schedule an appointment at the shop for a later date. Those who donate blood can either have a free Inflicting Ink t-shirt or receive a $10 off coupon for their next tattoo. Individuals may schedule tattoo appointments with Jeff prior to the event, but all walk-ons are welcome.

All attendees do not have to donate blood and/or receive a tattoo. The event is to simply highlight the fact that these two elements can come together. Inflicting Ink and the Rhode Island Blood Center are looking to create awareness about tattooing and donating blood, with hopes of dispelling the myth; “you cannot give blood for a year if you have a tattoo”. This event will take place rain or shine.

Dear Inflicting Ink Tattoo,

Thank you for sponsoring the Cardi’s Furniture blood drives on November 6th. Your support helped the Rhode Island Blood Center to ensure a safe & adequate blood supply to our hospitals. A total of 42 pints were collected between all 4 locations. Since one pint can save up to three lives, your blood drive potentially benefited up to 126 people in Rhode Island and beyond!

  • South County Commons: 15 (5 sign ups to become bone marrow donors)
  • Swansea: 6
  • South Attleboro: 16
  • West Warwick: 5

Also, the Inflicting Ink event at the South County Commons was a huge success. Not only did we have the 2nd highest collection we have ever had at that drive, we really got the message out that you can donate blood if you have a tattoo in the state of Rhode Island. Below is a link to their facebook page which included some pictures of the event.

All blood donations will make a difference in someone’s life. A significant amount of the blood collected at our blood drives will go towards treating children with leukemia, automobile accident victims and patients needing organ transplants. It is because of generous folks like yourself, who host blood drives, that we are able to give hope to patients and their families.

Please extend my thanks to everyone else that helped to make the day a success. It was a pleasure working with you again and I look forward to our next drive. Saturday, February 12th 2011.

Also, I believe Frank & Glenn will be working on a new Providence Journal ad for our 2011 blood drives and will be in touch soon once they have some proofs to show.

Till then, take care.

Sincerely,

Jennifer Siegal

The traveling studio, created by Jeff Goyette, renowned tattoo artist and owner of Inflicting Ink Tattoo Studio, and featured his son Corey and he as artists as well as Guest Tattoo Artist Ben Dixon, owner of Lone Wolf Body Art in Nashville, TN.

In early May Goyette, a country music lover, offered this all expense paid trip to listeners of Cat Country 98.1 WCTK’s (Providence) online auction to benefit Rhode Island flood victims. Goyette experienced personal effects from the RI flood and after donating over $3,000 to the Rhode Island Red Cross his selfless attitude sent him packing to help the city of Nashville.

Goyette, who is currently being filmed for a reality television show that will air sometime in 2011, parked his 78 ½ foot mobile tattoo studio across the street from LP Field at Limelight Studios where he tattooed over 50 individuals during the Country Music Festival. Goyette decided he would not only temporarily bring business to Nashville but film his experience to create exposure for Music City and his Rhode Island based company.

The 2010 CMA Festival hit an all time high, selling out each night at LP Field. This was an important year for Music City because much like Rhode Island, the city of Nashville had experienced devastating floods. Tourists, country musicians and businesses came together during the four day festival and raised an unprecedented amount of money for the city of Nashville.
