“Everyone here just loves animals so much they just wanted to give back and help them out.” Relatable words from Adept Tattoo & Body Piercing Studio’s Lisa Faulkner. She’s talking about this weekend’s third Annual Animal Charity Day, where the studio’s two locations (6267 Quinpool Road and 1274 Bedford Highway) dedicate their entire Saturday to tattooing for ACAP Cape Breton—and its work monitoring the dwindling little brown bats—and Hope For Wildlife. “The bat population is super important for pollinating plants and keeping down insects,” says Faulkner. “I think people don’t know these things and how important bats actually are to our ecosystem.” From 11am to 7pm (Bedford) and 8pm (Quinpool), Adept will have six of its talented artists tattooing specially designed flash art for $100 donations. It’s a first-come, first-served deal—meaning if you expect to get inked, you should show up early and be ready to wait (Faulkner is expecting lines). “We want to make a lot of money for the charities, but we want to pump out wicked artwork, too,” she says.
