SCRANTON, Pa. -- People in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre could get a haircut or some fresh ink on Sunday, all to help a man and his family with health care costs.

Electric City Tattoo and Loyalty Barber Shop partnered for an event called "Flashes and Fades" to raise money for Brian Craig, co-owner of The Bog in Scranton and a Loyalty barber.

Craig was recently diagnosed with cancer.

The event took place at both businesses' locations in Scranton and Wilkes-Barre.

People tell Newswatch 16 they are more than happy to support a friend in need.

"It's just really amazing to see what an impact Brian has had on the community because he's had such an impact on me as a friend. He's just an amazing person, so seeing everyone come out for the benefit last week and for this tattoo benefit is just really awesome," said friend Heather Davis.
