The TATTOOS & RESCUES project was started in September 2012 in Birmingham, Alabama. The project seeks to combat stereotypes that all rescue animals are damaged or unable to be adopted due to trauma or abuse. But this project is so much more than just another rescue advocacy medium, I also noticed a major parallel with rescue animals and people with tattoos facing prejudices. One of my friends got a memorial tattoo on his neck for his 4 year old son that died. He was fired the next day for having this tattoo which was showing his love for his son with art and self expression. This is nothing short of bullying, it's not fair and needs to be stopped. Not all visibly tattooed people are in hate groups, just like not all pit bulls are vicious. Support your local animal rescue and advocacy groups before judging the animals. Ask a person why they have the tattoo they do before you judge them.
