If you are visiting Manchester soon you might notice more bees than usual.

No, it’s not an increase in the insects.

The increase in bees is thanks to Manchester’s tattoo artists.

Tattoo parlours pledged their own time and resources to tattoo as many Manchester Bees as possible over two days as a lasting symbol of Manchester’s courage, strength and defiance and to raise money for the families affected by the terrible tragedy in May 2017.

The Manchester Tattoo Appeal has been supported worldwide, with tattoo parlours as far as New Zealand also taking part. So far, more than £559,000 has been raised through the tattoo appeal for the families of those killed or injured in the Manchester Arena attack.

If you are interested in getting a Manchester Bee tattoo and donating to the appeal, please contact a local tattoo artist to see if they can help.
