Coworkers elevating cash to assist tattoo artist hospitalized after bike crash

CINCINNATI (WXIX) – After her friend and work colleague was hospitalized after a motorcycle accident, Beelistic Tattoo raises money to help one of their own.

Ken Hutchinson, 32, was driving to Beelistic Tattoo to start his work day on Tuesday when he was hit by a car on Westwood Northern Boulevard.

According to Serenity Baumer, manager at Beelistic Tattoo, Hutchinson suffered broken ribs, a broken pelvis, a bruised heart and bleeding in the brain.

Hutchinson is now in a medically induced coma in the intensive care unit on a ventilator.

To make matters worse, his house was robbed the day after the crash.

“He had a girlfriend who lived with him and she went to the house she lived in and the door was open and the safe was open and it was empty,” Baumer said.

To help Hutchinson get back some of the stolen money, his employees try to raise $ 15,000.

“He has five children to look after, all of them pretty small. He wanted to save money for them, ”explains Baumer. “He has no insurance and no medical bills, I can’t imagine, so we all have to put people on deck to raise the money we can.”

To raise more money, Beelistic is donating $ 10 from every piercing and tattoo to the fund this week.
