A Tattoo shop in Seminyak has handed out free food aids to many affected tourism workers.
A tattoo parlor named Hendric Shinigami Tattoo that is located on Jalan Mertanadi, Seminyak handed out dozens of food aid packages to the local people around their shop on Wednesday afternoon (25/8). As a form of support to the tourism workers who were deeply affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, the owner of the tattoo parlor, Hendric decided to hand out 120 packages of food to the people around his shop.
Hendric admitted that the Covid-19 pandemic has affected the economic sector in Bali, including his tattoo parlor, causing many people to lose their source of income and become unable to provide for their family. “I’m actually living in Jakarta, and this tattoo parlor is one of our branches. So I decided to help the local community here, by providing their basic needs, so they have the ability to survive.” Hendric said. Hendric also wants to dissipate the bad image about tattoos and tattoo shops among society.
“I wanted to show the people that tattoos are just art, and could show empathy to other people as well.” Hendric added. One of the residents who received the food package named Gede Sunarta admitted that many people in Seminyak who have been relying on the tourism sector to survive are now financially struggling. “We have been living in this situation for almost 2 years, and I hope there will be more people like Hendric. This is a lesson for us that we won’t forget our people when we have the ability to help them in the future.” Sunarta concluded.
