Wild Bill’s 16th annual Tattoo-a-thon raised $18,500 for UC Davis Children's Hospital. Thirty tattoo artists volunteered to work 16 hours during this year’s event on Feb. 25. All proceeds – including tips – were donated to UC Davis Children’s Hospital. 

"Every year, Wild Bill and his artists donate their time and talents to give back to our kids. Their donations make a big impact in supporting what we do at UC Davis Children's Hospital," said Jacquelyn Mills, senior director of development at UC Davis Children's Hospital.

This year's donation brings the total amount raised over the past 16 years to $218,500. Wild Bill and his artists are recognized for their contributions on the UC Davis Pediatric and Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.
