Hundreds of people queued in Manchester, England, on May 28 to get bee tattoos as part of a <a href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BUiWrl9BJLh/" target="_blank">fundraising campaign</a> to help those affected by the deadly <a href="https://newswire.storyful.com/collections/manchester-incident_3813" target="_blank">May 22 attack</a> in the city.

The bee is <a href="https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/3657416/manchester-bee-tattoo-video-tribute-attack-victims/" target="_blank">reportedly</a> a symbol of Manchester’s industrial past and people got bee tattoos in the wake of the attack to show their solidarity with the city and the victims; Charlotte Campbell, a mother of one of the victims, also got a bee tattoo in honour of her daughter, Olivia.

The event on Sunday was run by Sacred Art tattoo parlour: people <a href="https://www.facebook.com/sacredartmcr/photos/a.195630923808880.44509.178264592212180/1498146893557270/?type=3" target="_blank">paid £50</a> to receive a small bee tattoo, and 100 per cent of fund raised were to go to people affected by the attack, according to the parlour.
