Youth association to benefit from every etch
A Steveston business wants to leave a local impression beyond the tattoo artistry they create every day.
So, for the month of December, the Steveston Tattoo Company will be donating $20 from every tattoo to the Richmond Youth Service Agency.
Ryan Halter, owner of Steveston Tattoo, said the agency does a lot of good work with Richmond youth.
“I think that as a whole, we need to help our youth out. It goes without saying, we need to help the up and coming generation,” said Halter.
In selecting a local beneficiary, Richmond Youth Service Agency hit all the marks, helping kids find employment and doing other outreach work.
“They have so many outreach programs...they could always use a little extra help with that. It’s just a little way for us giving back. Any little bit helps.”
Steveston Tattoo Company opened last year, and during its first year of operation, made a donation to Covenant House in Downtown Vancouver.
This year, it wanted to focus on a Richmond group, he said.
