WINOOSKI, Vt., Feb. 3 (UPI) -- A tattoo shop in Vermont is offering free tattoos to allow visitors to express their support for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.

Aartistic Inc tattoo shop in Winooski is offering a free tattoo that shows the outline of the top of the socialist Senator's head for anyone who requests one.

"We wanted to support him someway and with the caucus coming up there was a rumor that there's a shop in New Hampshire that's giving away Donald trump tattoos ... and we just couldn't have that," owner Tyre Duvernay told News10.

Duvernay said the idea began with offering free cover-ups for anyone with a Donald Trump tattoo but soon evolved into the Sanders design. He said that he has been contacted by shops in other states that plan to offer the design for free.

Duvernay said they've received several calls a day and have already done 30 tattoos.
