Fife tattoo artist Ronnie Carroll aims to make a significant mark on a fundraiser in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support.

Glenrothes man Ronnie (50), who owns Tattoo Krazy in Leslie, is now offering customers the chance to get a special cancer ribbon tattoo in any colour to represent the cancer of their choice.

And £10 from every tattoo completed will go to Macmillan.

“We have the official backing of Macmillan Cancer Support in this initiative,” Ronnie said.

“I have chosen to raise money for this particular charity in memory of my wife Beverley’s stepfather Bill Drummond, who died from cancer a few years ago.

“It will be good if we can raise at least £500.”

Ronnie, who has been a tattoo artist since 1983, has run Tattoo Krazy for the past 16 years.

He has already etched the first cancer ribbon tattoo on the wrist of regular customer Morag Murphy.

And it seems that Ronnie, who has every area of his body tattooed other than his face and neck, will never grow tired of his job.

“It’s the variation of my work that I enjoy,” Ronnie said.

“No two tattoos are the same.

“Tattoos are more popular now than they have ever been and I think that’s simply because they are in the media all the time.

“The most popular types of tattoo I do are sleeves and Japanese ones.”
