A local tattoo shop is looking to leave its mark on the Niles community.

For the third straight year, Paparazzi Tattoos in Niles will offer a $20 discount on tattoos and $10 off any piercing for those who bring in a donation for the Ferry Street Resource Center.

The artists have dubbed the program “Toys for Tats” and are accepting new and gently used toys and clothing.

“We just wanted to help families less fortunate in the community,” said Kristie Phillips, floor manager and piercer at Paparazzi. “We can help the community through our tattoos.”

The shop is collecting items from Nov. 1 through Dec. 21.
