My husband is really into ancient norse culture and tattoo art and he has dreamed of getting a giant, norse style tattoo of a tree to cover his whole back ever since his early teenager years. There is a tattoo artist in Denmark who is quite famous for the sort of work my husband loves, so he got a quote from this guy on how much such a big piece would be. It's 7.000€... far, far more than we can afford!
The last two years have been pretty rough for us as a couple. We have recently started a family and we both had to work very hard to earn our living and take care of our kid. So now, more than ever, I want to make something good happen for my husband. He is such a kind-hearted soul and had to put up with a lot recently. I love him more than words can express and he deserves to have his dream fulfilled in return for everything he has done for me and for our child. I would love nothing more at this point than to wake him up on Christmas day or his birthday (which is only a couple of weeks later) and tell him "Darling, you're going to Denmark to get that tree!".
I know there are far more important projects out there, projects whose success or failure may determine someone's survival. I wouldn't want to draw attention or money away from any of those, naturally.
But if you do have a couple of euros to spare after helping out those in need, then - please - at least consider my project. It's nearly Christmas and you would be making a caring young father unbelievably happy!
