Norma Hunter was one of nine people who had a new tattoo put on their bodies by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday. The tattoo fundraiser continues at Flesh Impressions Friday.
AMHERST – Norma Hunter offered up her forearm as a canvas for tattoo artist Harvey Bird in support of four-year-old Ryan Miller yesterday at Flesh Impressions in Amherst.
Miller is a toddler from Tatamagouche who is currently in the IWK being treated for leukemia, and Flesh Impressions is doing small tattoo designs Thursday and Friday for a minimum donation of $50 to help support Ryan and his parents as they care for Ryan and his three siblings.
Hunter said she loves tattoos, and wanted to get a new one in support of the Miller family. Her new tattoo is of a cherry blossom and a cancer ribbon surrounded by stars representing different kinds of cancer.
