The Cape of Good Hope SPCA and Primal Culture Tattoo Studio have once again joined forces to bring animal lovers and tattoo enthusiasts the highly anticipated third annual Tats4Tails event from January 24 – 30 2022, which will see artists such as Craig Lucas returning to support the amazing cause.
Many well-known Capetonians have been inked by Primal Culture Tattoo Studio’s Clinton Naidoo over the past two events including Zoe Brown, Tanya Nefdt, Ryan Botha and Simon Orgill.
According to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA, for the first time ever, pre-booking registrations will be in full swing. If you decide to book, you’ll be sent a tattoo voucher that you can personalise for someone special this Christmas. What better way to spread joy while helping animals in need.
While it’s incredibly rewarding to keep animals awaiting homes happy and healthy, it’s also very expensive and costs the SPCA R100 per day on average to ensure that one animal awaiting their forever home is taken care of.
“With a 7cm x 7cm tattoo costing only R700 and with all proceeds of the tattoo coming to the SPCA, getting just one tattoo means that the cost of caring for 7 animals will be covered for a day or that one animal’s costs are covered for an entire week of care,” says Belinda Abraham, spokesperson for the Cape of Good Hope SPCA.
Primal Culture Tattoo Studio artist Clinton Naidoo says: “I have been honoured to offer my assistance in various ways since 1992,” as he explains how the SPCA has always been of service to him and others in Cape Town.
“Finally, I was privileged to host the first Tats for Tails tattoo-a-thon in 2019… I see this as my way of giving back to the animals,” Naidoo adds.
