A CANCER sufferer has designs on a charity money-spinner after daringly getting tattooed with the names of his friends and family for charity.
Rob Hansler, 28, has raised over £1,200 for The Rowans Hospice after going under the needle to etch 73 names on his back for the cause.
Rob, who was diagnosed with cancer three years ago, charged £20 for people to have their names and a personal message scrawled on his back.
He braved the challenge at his cousin’s tattoo shop Kingston Ink in North End.
Rob, of Lind Close, Waterlooville, said: ‘I thought it would be a funny idea because I don’t really take myself seriously. But I’m glad I did it because I’ve raised a lot of money for The Rowans Hospice.
‘I’m proud of the tattoo as well because my mates are on it. It makes it personal.’
A former builder, Robert hopes to raise more money for the Hospice next year in a five-a-side football match arranged by Waterlooville side Co-op Dragons.
