The Tattoo

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Bryan Health Vice President Bob Ravenscroft fulfilled his two-year-long promise and got inked after Iron Brush Tattoo donated surgical gloves early on in the pandemic.

Iron Brush Tattoo donated 29,000 surgical gloves back in March 2020 as personal protective equipment was in short supply at the time.

“To the good folks at Iron Brush Tattoo. When we get through this, I don’t currently have one, but I’m coming in to get a tattoo,” Ravenscroft said.

Ravenscroft finally fulfilled his pledge two years later at Iron Brush Tattoo.

Ravenscroft’s tattoo design represents a two-year journey, a health official’s pledge to be truthful and honest with the public and a Bible verse about what love is and is not, according to a press release.

Iron Brush Tattoo staff refused payment for the tattoo and instead asked Bryan Health to use the money to buy nurses a beer and thank them for their work.

Ravenscroft then personally delivered gift cards from a local brewery to nursing units at Bryan’s east and west campuses.

“The honor of working with all of our staff the last two years under previously unimaginable circumstances was awe-inspiring and absolutely incredible,” Ravenscroft said. “I hope they enjoy this gesture on behalf of Iron Brush Tattoo and all of us at Bryan.”
