A charity that supports older people at home has teamed up with a tattoo studio in a project aiming to empower older people by fighting the stigma around ageing, as well as raise funds.

Over four weeks, regular videos will introduce the participants (the Bucket Listers): a group of five people who are assisted by ALONE. The videos will outline each person’s experience with ALONE and their hopes for their new tattoo, before they are inked by The Ink Factory artists on Sunday 9 September.

What do you think about this new approach to raising funds? Do you think it's effective?

I don't get it. Why tattoos though? There's so many other things you can do for money?

I think they want to remove the stigma around things that old people can't do which probably including getting a tattoo.

If that's the case, there a number of other things they could do which does not include a permanent ink on their body.

This isn't the first time that people did a tattoo for charity - Here's one back in 2012 http://www.today.com/health/ink-cause-tattoo-fundraiser-helps-teen-leukemia-919428

I wonder if it's profitable though.

I think this is freaking awesome...?!?! Can you honestly say you would get a tattoo at their age...? I don't think I have the guts!

You have a point. I probably wouldn't.
