Kiwi artist gives back to sick kids in need
When New Zealand artist pledged his support to sick children, he never thought he would get such an amazing response.

Let’s face it. We all have a little rebellious streak inside of us, and these children are no different.

New Zealand artist Benjamin Lloyd recently took to Facebook to announce that he would partner with the Auckland’s Starship Children’s Hospital, to give all the sick children temporary tattoos if he received a mere 50 likes on his post. To his amazement, Lloyd received over 400,000 in no time – a number that seems to only be growing by the minute.

The artist, who has been airbrushing for over 10 years, decided to help out the children and provide them with a much needed distraction from their day-to-day lives in the hospital.

He is about to start his tattoo-a-thon, taking to the wards of the Children’s hospital to bring an afternoon of joy to all the little kids.

The ink is completely safe to use on sensitive skin and washes right off.

“Nothing brings me more joy than boosting kids confidence with a custom tattoo,” wrote Lloyd on Facebook. “The only bad thing is that they don’t want to take a shower afterwards.”
