VALDOSTA, GA (WTXL) -- One local business has organized a unique way to help the victims of the Orlando shooting.

The Brass Quill Gallery will hold a special tattoo fundraiser on Tuesday, June 21.

The parlor will sell customized designs in honor of the victims. all proceeds will go toward an online fundraiser to support victims and their families.

The parlor says since some people are unable to give blood, giving tattoos is another way to show support.

"They give hope to people," said tattoo artist Ben Stubbs. "They give closure to people. Sometimes, they look cool and will get them just for fun. They're memories. We give people memories, which is kind of cool."

The event is walk-ins only. Tattoos are $50. The parlor will open at 10 a.m. that day.
