Founded in the summer of 2000 by Duke Riley, East River Tattoo is located on Brooklyn’s historic Greenpoint waterfront. The artists of East River Tattoo specialize in high quality custom tattoo designs in a variety of styles, heavily influenced by maritime folk art and 19th century traditional tattooing often evoking antique nautical charts, woodcuts, engravings and scrimshaw.

Threads For Teens & FLASH TATTOOS! at East River Tattoo Saturday (7/27)

 

Kitty Joe & Allyson Ahlstrom

East River Tattoo (1047 Manhattan Ave) will be hosting a charity event for Threads for Teens on Saturday, July 27th from 10am-1pm.

Raf Delalande  (guest artist who just arrived yesterday from France!), Rob Banks and Rachel Hauer will be tattooing their own flash pieces ranging from $50 ‘charms’ to $150 flowers/other stuff and donating the proceeds to Threads for Teens from 10am to 1pm.

Duke Riley’s Project Manager Kitty Joe, an awesome Greenpointer, wrote in to let us know about this charity that her niece Allyson Ahlstrom started in 2011 when she was 14.  Allyson runs a boutique in Windsor, California that welcomes teens in foster care and cases of extreme poverty to ‘shop’ for free in an upscale boutique.  The project started out simply to satisfy 10 hours of required community service through her school.  After graduating from high school in May, she outfitted a 62′ trailer as a mobile boutique and is currently on the third leg of her 48 state tour of the country, making daily stops in cities to distribute clothing to deserving teens recommended by social agencies.

Temporary Tattoo Project & Flying Kites

There is a local charity based right here in Greenpoint called Flying Kites that is building The Flying Kites Leadership Academy, a home and school for abandoned, abused and orphaned children in Kenya, which currently has 27 children in their care.

Another Greenpoint organization called the Temporary Tattoo Project has created some amazing temporary tattoos that you can buy, and all the proceeds are donated to Flying Kites.

Right now Groupon Gives is running a campaign for Temporary Tattoo Project. Take a minute, spend $10 (less than a fancy cocktail), get a cool tattoo and help a child in Kenya. It’s pretty simple.
