Do something fun and get a tattoo to raise awareness and funds for tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).

Don’t worry, they’re just temporary!

You can join this year’s TSC Global Awareness Day celebrations by joining our #Tatts4TSC campaign.

Getting involved is easy:

  1. Talk to your workplace about holding a gold coin morning tea on 15 May. You could also host an event at home, playgroup or school.
  2. Register your event here or contact Kate on 0434 391 430.
  3. Send an email to your colleagues or friends letting them know what’s happening
  4. On May 15, decorate the event space with posters we will supply, take your collection tin and temporary tattoos and talk to your colleagues and friends about TSC and why we need their help.
  5. Donate the funds raised to TSA by making a direct deposit to our bank account, send a cheque or donate online using a credit card.

Everyone who registers an event gets twenty free temporary tattoos to share with their supporters to raise awareness of TSC. Get in quick to secure yours.

If the Cancer Council can raise millions each year through The Biggest Morning Tea – surely we can raise awareness of TSC and a few dollars too with some gold coin collections around Australia.

Why the wave?

You’ll notice our temporary tattoo design features a wave. People living with TSC liken their journey to riding waves. There are highs and lows and unpredictable tides that threaten to tow you under. We believe that even though we often can’t control the TSC waves, we can learn to surf.

Everyone who supports #Tatts4TSC can wear their temporary tattoo with pride, knowing they’ve helped someone with TSC learn to ride the waves.

Go social

We’d love to see your events and your tatts on Instagram and Facebook. Use the #Tatts4TSC hashtag and tag us @AuTSC

Organising an event is not your thing?

You can still join us by purchasing a temporary tattoo. Individuals tattoos are $10 including postage. Or buy 3 for $20.
