A York County tattoo artist is using his talents to help the families of two men recently killed in a motorcycle crash.
Jason Kapp, an artist at Westside Ink, is offering a number of special tattoo designs on Sunday and the money raised will be donated to the families of Steve Elicker and Jarod Counts.
Both men died from injuries they received in a motorcycle crash in Lancaster County that happened July 20th.
“We’re all family, so we decided we were going to put this benefit on to try to help their families out and raise as much money as we can,” Kapp says.
Kapp was close to both men. He plans to work until 9 p.m. Sunday doing the tattoos, but says he will continue in the night as long as customers are coming in the door.
His goal is to do at least 40 tattoos in honor of the crash victims.
Westside Ink is located at 2227 West Market Street in West Manchester Township, York County. All of the tattoos being offered today cost $60, cash only.
Money is also being collected, if you’re not up to getting a tattoo.
