Getting inked for Oklahoma tornado victims

KENNER, LA (WGNO) – A Kenner couple is encouraging people to get inked for Oklahoma.

Kayce and Henri Montegut own the Electric Expressions tattoo shop on Veterans Blvd.

For the next two weeks, they plan to donate at least 10% of their sales to help the victims of the Oklahoma tornado.

They say they’re motivated by Hurricane Katrina.  Kayce and Henri spent part of their evacuation in Oklahoma where they say people could not have been more supportive and helpful.

“We would go anywhere and people would just give us things.  They wanted to help out, especially the kids.  They would just give the kids toys,” said Kayce Montegut from her shop Tuesday afternoon.  “It was just awesome.”

The Monteguts say they are waiting to see how many relief groups and assistance funds make appeals for donations before deciding where to make their contribution.
