Eternal Image Tattooing and Body Piercing is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a two-day concert to benefit Community Hospice Care of Tiffin.
The concert is to take place 6 p.m.-2 a.m. Friday and Saturday at The New Nest, SR 18, Fostoria.
Music starts at 6:30.
"Every year, I combine my birthday and an anniversary bash," said Jim Cook, who owns Eternal Image, 285 N. Sandusky St. "For the 10th anniversary of the shop, we decided to have a special bash."
He said 14 bands - seven each night - have donated their time and talents, and standup comics have donated their time to perform between band sets.
Cook said his friend, Zach Ballas, and the band, Groundscore, are making the trip from Washington, D.C., to participate in the concert.
"And there's a bunch of local bands from northwest Ohio," he said. "They'll be playing a variety of music from acoustic reggae and rap to rock.
"There's nothing for the metal heads this year," he said. "But there's a lot of good local talent."
Cook said the concert gets bigger every year and has become known as a good place for bands to get their name known.
"I've got bands fighting over it now," he said. "It's grown so big that we moved it to this venue. The New Nest donates the place."
Last year, Cook said the concert raised $500 to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
"This year, my father passed away in November and Hospice was nice enough to help us," he said.
The fee is $5 at the door, and Cook said he expects at least 300 people to attend.
"We had 250 last year and we hope it grows," he said.
Kuzma Concessions is to have food available.
