Jason Oosthuizen is a well-known South African Drummer for bands like Van Coke Kartel, The Narrow and frontman for Oooth. He has decided to use this lockdown time to play it forward and give back to the tattoo artists of South Africa.
How are Jason and Oooth playing it forward?
Just like the musicians, tattoo artists are struggling through this time not being able to work and generate an income. Throughout Jason’s career he has made many friends in the tattoo industry who sponsored him with so many tattoos, that Jason decided it was time to give back in the form of a Facebook Live & YouTube performance and raise awareness through social media.
The show will feature 4 of the top tattoo artists in Gauteng as well as a mystery online guest in an Interview and Q&A session followed by a live performance by rock band, Oooth.
Questions to the artists can be sent in prior to the event as well as during the event and donations raising funds for the supporting causes (Tattooers Unite SA, the SOS Charity Fundand #FeedOurCrew) are
This unique experience will be hosted live from the MGG Stream Studio and the organizers would like to give a special thanks to MGG Productions & DWR Distribution for all their assistance.
Since lockdown, many industries have been left unable to trade, including musicians, theatre and entertainment technicians as well as minimum 380 tattoo artists.
Jason explains the aim of the Tattooers Unite SA & #FeedOurCrew Fundraiser
“We want to encourage people to donate any amount they can afford. Tattoo artists and technicians are in a tough situation right now and we want to do our bit to help.”
