For the past month, Sacred Tattoo has be working with the creative minds behind The Social Tattoo Project. A project that makes empathy a permanent part of peoples lives. Below is a bit of info on the project from the Social Tattoo Project Site.
"People care about a world crisis… for a week. But we think the world’s issues deserve more than just a moment of empathy.
The Social Tattoo Project is making empathy permanent. Our volunteers are getting tattoos that represent worldly issues, but they have no idea what their tattoos will be. They are letting you decide.
For each tattoo, we will post 4 trending topics on Twitter, and the most tweeted trend will be the subject of the tattoo. To vote, tweet #socialtattoo and your #favorite trend of the 4 to @social_tattoo . With your vote and our volunteers’ skin, we can make what the world empathizes with today, what we care about forever."
Later today we found that their project was picked up by the Huffington Post. Feel free to give it a read. These kids worked really hard on this project. We also wanted to thank both Matthew Adams and Jon Mesa for helping these guys out. You all were real troopers!
