Those who want to get a little ink for themselves this holiday season can also give a little to a needy child at the same time.
Sensation Tattoo, located at 2031 Wilton Drive, is having its annual Toys for Tats toy drive. Customers who bring in a child’s toy valued at $10 and up will get a 25 percent discount off their tattoo. Higher discounts will be offered for more expensive toys.
Santiago Gonzalez, manager at Sensation Tattoo, which opened its doors on Wilton Drive last year, said he expects his clients will participate like they did last year, but even more so this Christmas. “We expect a better turnout in Wilton Manors. Last year, we had people bringing in multiple toys. We had the whole backseat and the whole trunk full.”
The haul of toys included action figures, dolls, board games, and toy cars. “It was kind of all over the place,” Santiago said.
The discount starts Nov. 24 and goes until Christmas Eve.
“We go out Christmas Eve to parks that are in the worst parts of the neighborhood and give them to kids who need them. We pull over to the side of the street [if we see a needy family] and give out toys,” Santiago said.
