Announcement: Gretsch Guitar Giveaway!

By Posted in - General News on March 9th, 2018 0 Comments

The Tattoo Collective and Gretsch have a very special prize up for grabs in support of The Teenage Cancer Trust…

We are excited to reveal that our lucky visitors will be in with a chance to win a unique Gretsch guitar, and 2 pairs of tickets to the one and only London Tattoo Convention 2018!

Our incredible Gretsch guitar giveaway is one of a kind. The Gretsch Streamliner 2622 guitar is a special one-off, adorned with our psychedelic poster artwork by attending tattooer Sam Ford.

The Gretsch model is designed for the guitarist who demands more than the mundane from an instrument – more performance, more style and most importantly, more volume—while retaining all you expect from a Gretsch. Nearly impossible to put down once you pick it up and start playing, the G2622 Streamliner has the updated sound and classic style that has earned Gretsch accolades since the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll.

But that’s not all! The travel case has been hand painted with Japanese irezumi-inspired designs by our talented exhibitor Gina McQuen. Gina specialises in creating one of a kind painted leather goods. The case itself is a work of art, perfectly fitting for such a stylish guitar.

The lucky winner will also receive TWO pairs of weekend tickets to The London Tattoo Convention 2018! The September event is a must-see, with over 400 of the world’s finest tattoo artists in attendance and live music, art exhibitions, performance art and much more on display. This convention is widely regarded as one of the finest tattoo events in the world. Visitors will also find our stunning Gretsch guitar exhibition at the show, with even more artists contributing to the display – watch this space!

This competition is open to all visitors at The Tattoo Collective. Raffle tickets will be sold on entry for just £2.50 a ticket or £10 for a row of 5. All proceeds will be donated to The Teenage Cancer Trust. Winners will be announced on Sunday 18th March at 7.3opm.

About Teenage Cancer Trust

Teenage Cancer Trust makes sure the seven young people aged 13 to 24 diagnosed with cancer every day don’t face it alone. They help young people and their families deal with the many ways cancer affects your body, mind and life. The charity works in partnership with the NHS, providing expert staff and specialist units in Principal Treatment Centres for cancer, and bring young people together so they can support each other.

Teenage Cancer Trust also gives presentations in schools, teaching young people about cancer and empowering them to go the doctors earlier. The charity also helps medical professionals and politicians understand why young people with cancer need specific support.

Almost half of young people with cancer are not treated in Teenage Cancer Trust units. Instead they are treated in hospitals where there isn’t the same level of expertise, and they might never meet another young person with cancer. This is a scary and lonely experience. This must change. So Teenage Cancer Trust is building a wider Nursing & Support Service within the NHS to help all young people, wherever they receive treatment. To make this happen, they need to raise more than £20 million every year.

Teenage Cancer Trust relies on donations to fund our vital work. Find out more, get involved or make a donation Teenage Cancer Trust is a registered charity: 1062559 (England & Wales), SC039757 (Scotland).

Don’t miss this amazing opportunity for a very good cause, along with all the fantastic exhibitions and tattoo art The Tattoo Collective has to offer.

Join us March 17th-18th at The Old Truman Brewery for a weekend celebrating the very best of UK and Irish tattoo culture.
