While Friday 13th is a date shrouded in superstition, a local tattoo artist used it to turn around the luck of past and present service people in the area.
Chris Day, of No Regrets Tattoo Studio in Long Sutton, tattooed 13 customers for £13 in aid of Help for Local Heroes.
He said: “I’ve always supported the charity. My dad is a veteran and my parents are involved in The Royal British Legion, so it’s a cause close to my heart.
“The event went really well, thank you to everyone who took part. It was a great day.”
The profits from the 13 individual designs that Chris completed on the day, alongside additional donations, raised over £200.
Anyone who wishes to make a donation to the Help For Local Heroes fund can visit Chris’ Facebook page for further details or contact Harold at the Anglia Motel.
