Tattoo event to say thanks for saving baby’s life

4:00pm Monday 31st January 2011

A TATTOO-mad couple are to thank the doctors who treated their baby son by organising a body art fundraising event.

Paul and Carly Humphreys have invited body artists to their Evolution Tattoo parlour in Banbury Road, Kidlington, to raise cash for Oxford Children’s Hospital.

The John Radcliffe Hospital last month treated newborn Presley-Ray Humphreys after he was born with a twisted bowel.

He was delivered on December 12 weighing a healthy 9lb 2oz, but two days later started vomiting and was rushed back to hospital.

The twisted bowel had cut off the blood flow to his intestine and could have proved fatal.

Mr Humphreys, 33, said: “They said they had to open him up and have a look. They were pretty sure it was a twisted bowel, but did not know how far it had gone.

“They said that in the worst-case scenario he would not survive. They said if no blood was getting to it, he could have died quite quickly.

“Of course, you naturally presume the worst.”

He said: “When we got back from the hospital, we immediately thought we wanted to give something back, and this will be a bit different.”

Mrs Humphreys, 25, added: “It was all so quick I did not even have time to think or to get my head around it. There was so much going on.”

Just 20 minutes into the three-hour operation, the couple got the news that Presley-Ray would be okay.

Mr Humphreys said: “It was the biggest relief in the world.

“They caught it just in time, operated straight away and everyone was brilliant.

“We were told as he gets older, he should be made aware of the fact that he had the operation, but he does not have to be on a special diet or anything.

“He’s doing everything a baby should be doing: eating, crying, waking up every two hours, and keeping us all up.”

The proud dad has pledged to get a tattoo of Presley-Ray when he is two.

And Mrs Humphreys added: “I don’t think he knows anything about what he has been through. He’s got a scar on his belly, and I’m sure he’ll ask about it as he gets older.”

The February 27 event will include tattooing, an auction, music and children’s activities.

    • If you have ever worked as a tattoo artist, piercer, or any type of skin artist it's extremely important you contact the HubSpot corporation, and Certified Tattoo Studio, a HubSpot customer. Modern Driven Media's (a HubSpot partner) CEO Shana Steigerwalt, was hired by the owner of CertifedTattooStudio, Nando Mondragon, to collect the personal data of everyone that could be found by hacker's on the black market. Ms. Steigerwalt bought the data from hackers, with the number of individuals' data collected totaling more than one million people globally. You on this board almost certainly all had your data purchased illegally from hackers on the black market. CTS would pay MDM for this service, in violation of numerous state and federal laws, then would launder the money through their business accounts in violation of federal money laundering laws. HubSpot, and CTS, are required by law to inform you if they are storing your data, and how they got your data (in this case through multiple felonies). You have a claim (can file suit) against MDM, CTS, and the owners of both companies. If you discover your data was illegally collected and being housed by CTS, you should contact your local district attorney and a private attorney immediately. Numerous states have their own state statutes regarding data privacy and detail additional state level legal action you can take as a victim, and you are a victim of a crime. Numerous investigations are currently underway, but can take time to prosecute. In the meantime contact HubSpot and demand Modern Driven Media immediately be banned from the software platform for violating their contact, the law and your rights. The tattoo industry was intentionally targeted during this criminal enterprise that spanned most of 2022. Regardless if your data, your rights, were violated, contact HubSpot and express your outrage at one of their partners intentionally targeting your industry as a victim. Demand MDM be immediately banned. HubSpot: "One of the quickest ways to get in touch with us is to call our support line directly. The main number is easy to remember: 1-888-HUBSPOT ext. 3 (1-888-482-7768 ext. 3)."
