Benjamin Lloyd is a New Zealand tattoo artist who offered his talents to the children at a hospital in Auckland by giving them temporary airbrush tattoos.

He uses non-toxic water-based ink, stencils and an airbrush machine to give the kids the designs they ask for, helping to bring a smile to their faces and give them more confidence. The artist originally posted on Facebook with an update that told friends that he would tattoo all the patients at the Auckland children's hospital if he saw the post got 50 'Likes.' His cause ended up getting over 461,000 votes of support, and his inbox was soon filled with parents asking him to provide their child with one of his temporary airbrush tattoos.
