A tattoo parlour in Sheffield is inking the Manchester bee symbol on more than 50 people in aid of the terror attack appeal today.

Half a dozen tattooists at Tenacious Tattoos have given up their bank holiday day off to draw the city's symbol on to people from all over the region.

They asked for a £50 donation from anyone wanting a bee tattoo and had all of their slots booked up within days of launching the fundraiser.

All proceeds will go to the fundraising appeal to support the victims of the Manchester Arena terror attack that left 22 people dead last week.

That's what I do best, tattooing, so if I can do anything to help by tattooing people then of course I want to get involved and as soon as I saw tattooists in Manchester had started this movement I just wanted to join in, I just thought it was a brilliant idea...

It's the absolute least we could do, we've all got a day off on Monday.
