Wild Bill’s Tattoo seeks to aid children’s hospital
By: Staff report
Wild Bill’s Tattoo will host its 11th annual “Tattoo-a-thon” on Saturday, with 28 dedicated artists who have volunteered to work 16 hours straight. All proceeds from the event — including tips — will go to benefit the UC Davis Children’s Hospital. The event raised more than $15,000 last year, with more than 100 clients getting “inked” with everything from baby footprints to portraits of their children. To date, the event has raised $125,000 for the children’s hospital, which named part of its new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit after the tattoo shop. “We are all so fortunate to have a world-class medical facility like UC Davis Children’s Hospital here in Sacramento,” said owner Bill Hill, in a statement. “The hospital and its renowned medical staff have a profound impact in our community. Each year, more than 90,000 children are seen and cared for at UCD.” The event will take place from 8 a.m. to midnight at 205 Vernon St., suite D, in Roseville.
