New Zealand tattoo artist offers to give temporary tattoos to sick children
A tattoo artist has offered to airbrush temporary tattoos on to patients in New Zealand's Starship Children's Health hospital.

Benjamin Lloyd posted a video of himself using an airbrush to tattoo a young boy to Facebook on Saturday, and offered to tattoo similar sleeves on Starship patients if he received 50 likes on one of his images.

"Nothing brings me more joy than boosting a kids [sic] confidence with a custom tattoo 50 likes and ill [sic] go to starship hospital and tat all the kids up. It's airbrushed on (not permanent) peace," he wrote.

He later clarified that the ink used in the airbrush was organic and non-toxic.

His posts have attracted thousands of replies, including from parents of Starship patients who have expressed interest in the offer.

Some users have criticised Mr Lloyd for tattooing a child, although it is mostly unclear whether they realised the tattoo was temporary.
