Ninja has raised over $300,000 in the name of charity to get his first ever tattoos – one of which will be inspired by the Fortnite Llama.

Since rising to unprecedented levels of popularity on Twitch and YouTube, Ninja has been using his huge following for some good recently, taking part in charitable events such as the GuardianCon streamer marathon.

The money raised went to children’s research hospital St. Jude’s, a cause which Ninja has shown particular care for in other charity events too.

And once more he has chosen to raise money for the hospital in the name of a tattoo, his first is ‘Ninja’ in Japanese lettering, and the second will be the Llama from Fortnite.


He recruited celebrity tattoo artist Romeo Lacoste, who has tattooed the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Ariana Grande, Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd, and a host of YouTube and Instagram stars.

Ninja has said he didn’t have time to get the Llama tattoo on this visit, but will stick true to his word and the charity and get it soon.

Ninja was out at the ESPYS show in Los Angeles when he linked up with Lacoste, so fans may have to wait until his next trip to LA before we get to see the anticipated Llama tat.

Despite some suggesting it may be a tattoo he’d regret, the impact Fortnite has had on Ninja’s life over the past year is undoubtedly worthing of commemorating permanently with some ink.
