PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

A Paducah tattoo shop is offering half off all Marshall County High School memorial tattoos.

Tattoo artist Patrick Duffy at Iron Anchor is offering these tattoos.

"Some people want to forget," said Duffy. "I mean there's a lot of people that want to remember and it's hard for them to just look back and to have something that they can just remember all the time on them it's probably even better."

Benton, Kentucky native Billy Cotham spoke on why he got his memorial tattoo, "My hometown does not have to have a tragedy to come together, but when the unthinkable happens we always find a way to come together and fight back harder...The two halos are for Bailey and Preston, to remind me to love everyone that has helped my town become what it is today."

Also, Hannah Walker, who went to school at the High School, discussed her reason for the memorial ink.

"I didn't just get the tattoo just to get it," she said. "I want to remember all the good times that happened I don't want to remember what happened that day. Because I've had a lot of really good memories in that high school."

Duffy says he wants anyone who needs a tattoo to help heal to have one. Anything Marshall County related he will help make it happen. As for all the proceeds from these tattoos, they'll be going back to the high school so they can help the victims. 

"I figured that it's my only way that I can give back to the community with doing what I need to do," said Duffy. "I love tattooing, it's my way to give back."

Helping those going through a troubling time with a reminder in ink.
