SheKnows Ink Fundraiser

On Saturday the 7th of September, sisters, mothers, daughters, best friends and some men came together for a good cause at SheKnows Ink. Owner and tattoo artist, Shelby Downey, was horrified at all the news about femicide in South Africa and one night, whilst she was sketching a woman inspired drawing, she decided that she had to do something about it. #enoughisenough
