Manchester residents honor victims with bee tattoo

MANCHESTER -- After a suicide bombing during an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester claimed 22 lives, the city's residents honor those who died during the horrific attack by getting bee tattoos.

The bee is a traditional symbol of the city. It symbolizes a "hive of activity" in an industrial city.

Now, the symbol will represent those lost, strength and the city's unity.

ORIGINAL STORY: 19 dead, around 50 injured in possible terrorist incident during Ariana Grande concert

The idea came from a Manchester tattoo artist who wanted to raise money for the victims and their families.

The bee tattoo fundraiser has since taken off in Manchester, and has successfully raised more than $38,000.
