PETA's "Ink, Not Mink" Campaign

Updated on August 23, 2017

Be Comfortable In Your Own Skin And Let Animals Keep Theirs

As a spin-off from their "I'd Rather Go Naked" anti-fur campaign, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) created "Ink, Not Mink." Tattooed celebrities from the worlds of music, movies, fashion and even some tattoo artists have shown their body art and voiced their support for animal rights and the promotion of the usage of fake fur for clothing.

Get information about the campaign, see the poster images, watch videos from the celebrities who've participated and lend your support to this colorful but humane animal-rights cause.

Say "No" To Fur and Fur Farming

What "Ink, Not Mink" is really campaigning about isn't the encouragement of tattoos, it's against using fur for fashion and the practice of fur farming.

Thousands of animals, mostly mink, chinchilla and foxes, are raised and killed solely to obtain their fur. The animals are frequently raised in cramped and diseased conditions with up to 25% of the "crop" dying from respiratory or other illness in the process.

The animals are then subject to electrocution, drowning or are often clubbed to death. Many animals are just horribly wounded or stunned instead of outright killed and it's not uncommon for them to then actually be still alive when they are skinned for their fur.

It's now possible to create synthetic "fake" furs that imitate real animal skins and as such, farming and killing animals just to harvest their skins isn't necessary anymore.
