A tattoo-athon in Honiton has left its mark on the East Devon Day Hospice Appeal - raising more than £600.

The two-day event was hosted by New Street tattoo studio 13 last Friday and Saturday.

Chrissi Seward, who runs 13, said: “It went brilliantly. Everyone was so pleased to take part and the atmosphere was great.”

Around 20 people got tattoos from resident tattooist Nekeisha Horn and hand poked tattooist Martin Poole.

Staff and supporters dressed in themed costumes during the event.

Chrissi has thanked everyone who supported the tattoo-athon. A further £150 was also raised for the RSPCA.
