Florida artists donate tattoos for school shooting fund

CORAL SPRINGS, Fla. (AP) - A tattoo shop raised money for the Florida high school where 17 people died in a mass shooting by offering free tattoos in exchange for donations.

Shop owner Chris Blinston said he and other artists began working extra hours at No Hard Feelings shortly after the Feb. 14 shooting in nearby Parkland. On Sunday, they planned to do at least 350 free tattoos with a goal of raising $10,000 to support victims. Designs included "MSD Strong" and "Never Again."

Blinston tells the Sun Sentinel that artists donated their time for the event.

One of those getting a tattoo was 38-year-old Steven Porter, who graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in 1998. His tattoo was the school's mascot with the words "always an eagle" underneath.
