Tattoo artist shows he has plenty of heart

PROVING that tattoo artists do have a heart, Alfy Coulstock from Innocent Ink at Tweed Heads South is using his talent to raise money for a worthy cause.

Mr Coulstock is raffling off a 1.5m by 0.5m oil painting of an oriental dragon he painted to raise money for the Heart Kids Foundation.

"Instead of me giving money, I can use my skill to raise money," said the tattooist of three years.

The raffle tickets are $5 each and on sale at the Machinery Drive store until September 30, when the prize will be drawn.
