Woman With Down Syndrome Gets Free Tattoos Every Friday
Suzie Barry, a lovely woman with down syndrome gets free tattoos every friday.
For the past four months, Suzie Barry Hamilton, has gotten inked by a good tattooed samaritan named Jason Ward in Hamilton, New Zealand. (Tattoo artist at Muscle & Ink Tattoo studio).
"First time she came in, she just walked in & slapped a couple of stick-on tattoo packets on the desk & asked me to put them on her arm; Jason told the NZ Herald. "I said, 'what?!' and she said it again so i sat her down & put them on."
Suzie, who is a regular, coming in every Friday, says it makes her feel 'equal'. "It started out as something quite funny though, I mean, who does that? Who walks in a tattoo shop to get stick on tattoos?" laughed Jason
;But if she was a member of my family & she had have walked into another tattoo shop & they had told her to bugger off, i'd be angry;
And so he treated him as he would any other client (with sterile materials, gloves & spray) but doesn't charge for the service.
