Customers began lining up in front of Tapestry Tattoo a little after 8 a.m. Sunday, even though the shop wouldn’t begin tattooing until noon. The line quickly swelled to more than 100 people, so owner Chere Hall, 41, started tattooing a little earlier than anticipated, at 11 a.m.
People flocked to the tattoo parlor on Southeast Stephens Street in Roseburg as it held a fundraiser Sunday for victims’ families and those who were injured in last week’s shooting at Umpqua Community College. Hall, along with tattoo artists Chris Bellville, an employee, and Robbie Mills, who came up from Medford, offered UCC-themed tattoos in exchange for donations.
“We were just thinking about the families and the aftermath and the things that people don’t think about,” Hall said of the fundraising idea.
