Pure Art Tattoo Studio owner and manager, Megan Fetch with son Joe, 6, will be raising money for seriously ill children with the help of tattoo artists Adam Kidd, Sean Young, Cole Jackson and Delaney Reuben.

FOREST Lake's Sean Young is one of many parents who owes the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation a debt of gratitude.

Five years ago, his twin boys Rhyley and Bailey were born premature and without proper medical assistance would not have survived.

So when Mr Young, 32, was approached with an opportunity to help raise funds for seriously ill children, he was delighted to help.

For a week, Mr Young and his colleagues at Pure Art Tattoo and Body Piercing in Acacia Ridge will donate $20 from every tattoo towards the 1200km for Kids charity bike ride.

Further funds will be raised through sausage sizzles and raffles.

The bike ride event will see cyclists pedalling 1200km from Brisbane to Sydney to raise money for the Humpty Dumpty Foundation and the Royal Children's Hospital Foundation.

Owner and manager of Pure Art Tattoo Megan Fetch, said the business aimed to raise $5000.

As an added incentive, participant Darryl Dixon, bank manager at Westpac Forest Lake, promised to get a tattoo himself should the target be met.

"It's been overwhelming having so many community groups and businesses like Pure Art step up and do their best to help raise money," Mr Dixon said.

Pure Art's donation week will run from September 29 to October 5.
