HIgh Voltage is proud to introduce our new tattoo artist, Dan “The Man” Manhardt. Dan is originally from Pembroke, New York and currently resides in Corfu, New York. Dan always figured he would be good at tattooing since he had loved taking art classes, sketching and taking things apart. He started getting into tattooing after high school when he was 18 years old. He began researching tattooing and experimented on himself and few close friends at home for about a year. In January 2014 Dan moved to Jersey City, New Jersey to apprentice at Body and Soul Tattoo under Oksana Weber and Guy Prandstatter. He finished his apprenticeship in September of 2015 and started working at The Ultimate in Rochester, New York in October 2015­­­. Dan started working at High Voltage Tattoo & Piercing this March.

Four years ago Mark Fanara, whose Batavia tattoo business High Voltage had become very successful, thought he should do something to give back to the community that had nourished him his entire life, so he decided to hold a charity tattoo event and donate the proceeds to local community groups. The event was so popular and raised so much money for local charity that he decided to do it again the next year, and the next, and the next.

This year, Mark needs the community's help. Hospitalized with lymphomatoid granulomatosis, a rare cancer, the father of little two boys has only limited means to deal with his illness.

To help him out, two of his employees, Andrew London and Jeremy Fridman, are holding their own three-day event of tattoos and piercing to benefit Mark. The event is from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 23 through Oct. 25. Customers can select from a specific set of designs for a small tattoo for $30. Piercings are $15. Proceeds benefit Mark Fanara.

High Voltage is located at 110 W. Main St., Batavia.

There will also be a spaghetti dinner at 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 1, at the Alexander Fire Hall. Live music with Nix Vega starts at 6 p.m.
