5th Annual Urge Tattoos Remembrance Day Poppy Drive


Once again this November 11th, Urge Tattoos will be honouring Canada’s standing, fallen and retired vets with a full day of Poppy Tattoos! What better way to honour our brave soldiers, airmen and sailors — past and present — than a poppy tattooed in remembrance?

In support of military both past and present, Urge Tattoos will be giving away poppy tattoos on Nov 11th by donation immediately following the Moment of Silence at 11AM. The moment will be observed by the staff, after-which they will move into the shop and get started.

All are welcome and invited to the shop on November 11th where we will be toiling throughout the entire day to give as many poppy tattoos as humanly possible. Service will be on a first-come-first-serve basis.

Other locations have joined on this year, they include: The Burly Beard (Rockey Mountain House) and Incendiary Tattoo (Esquimalt) plan to hold their own Poppy Drives as well.

Last years event shut down Cook Street with the turn out and they are hoping to do it again.

There will be food and coffee on hand.
