IT’S ALMOST NOVEMBER!!!
Why is that so exciting? Well, for one thing it’s finally really fall here in beautiful Portland. On that note, look at this funny Onion article about…well, about all of us.
But the reason we’re really, really, super extra excited about November is because it’s WE LOVE BOOKS month at Icon! All November we’ll be celebrating our love of reading and writing with discounts, a flash day, and fundraising for two of our favorite literary non-profits, Write Around Portland and Fishtrap.
Pull up your tights, put on your sweater, and get ready to take them off for a tattoo!
-Get 10% of any literary-themed tattoo! Icon will be donating 50% of profits from literary tattoos to Write Around and Fishtrap.
-Get $10 off a tattoo or $5 off a retail purchase if you bring a donation for Portland Books to Prisoners! They’re looking for books or mailing supplies, although we’ll keep you posted as to specifics as November approaches.
-Look out for our LITERARY FLASH DAY (god, we are so excited about this)!!! That’s right, reading and writing-themed tattoos for super cheap! Annnnd we’ll be donating 100% of profits from the day to Write Around/Fishtrap. How effing awesome is that? You can get an awesome tattoo and feel good about yourself afterwards. We’ll be posting flash teasers and a date as it gets closer…but you have to keep reading our Tumblr to find out! Snap! (Hints…Lonesome Dove, anyone? Does anyone else besides Melanie LOVE JANE EYRE? Cause Melanie’s drawing some Jane Eyre tattoos).
