Guinness World Record attempt for the longest tattoo session for CanTeen

It has been a weekend of great Freo community initiated activities. And in true Fremantle-style they have been very diverse too – from record breaking tree planting to record breaking tattooing to raise money for young people with cancer.

Kris Barnas, an internationally-renowned artist now residing at Modern Ink in Fremantle will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for the longest tattoo session performed by a single artist, of which FULL proceeds will be donated to CanTeen.

Kris (like me as it sadly happens) lost his father a few years ago to cancer, and so as his way of giving something back and honouring his father’s memory, he decided to undertake this amazing task. Kris will tattoo for 72 hours consecutively with set breaks as per the Guinness rules, with the intention of making the biggest donation possible.

To donate go to the CanTeen fundraising page below. He started Friday arvo so by today I imagine he’s struggling just a bit!
