With the upcoming gag rule, Brooklynites take over by raising money for Planned Parenthood… by doing a flash tattoo event.
Getting Inked for Reproductive Rights
In lieu of the current presidency on Wednesday Feb. 9 at Magick City in Brooklyn, Magic Cobra Tattoo Society and Party to Protect collaborated a benefit event for Planned Parenthood. All proceeds from the feminist tattoos were donated to the organization.
Many tattoos from the flash sheet encourage ideas of equality, reproduction rights and feminism. Getting these images inked will serve as an empowering reminder to all.
“Our rights as women are being threatened by this current presidency and administration. It’s important we band up together and not give up our rights that we have been fighting for.”

“I’m here supporting my girlfriend. I think people in these numbers make a point, a view. It’s important to keep the fire going, I’m another body supporting.”

“I went there [Planned Parenthood] recently and they were so good to me, I could not have had a more positive experience and I’ve always supported Planned Parenthood by going there in person.”

“Planned Parenthood was founded on the revolutionary idea that women should have the information and care they need to live strong, healthy lives and fulfill their dreams — no ceilings, no limits,” says the Planned Parenthood website. Let’s keep it that way.
