Post Tattoo You? Show Us Your Ink!

We noticed a lot of critter tattoos among the attendees of Animal Care Expo this year. And now we’re searching for the best of them!

Animal Sheltering magazine is looking for the tales behind your animal-related tattoos. Send us a photo of your tat, along with the story (in 150 words or less) of why you got it, what it means to you, and how it relates to your work in animal welfare. We'll include some of the most compelling pictures and stories in an upcoming issue of Animal Sheltering, and others may be posted on animalsheltering.org. And as if the glory of being featured in the magazine isn't enough, prizes will be awarded to the inked animal lovers who make it into print.

Send your entries to asm@hsus.org, or—for those still using real film to shoot pics—to Animal Sheltering magazine/The HSUS, 700 Professional Drive, Gaithersburg, MD 20879. Include your name, organization, job title, e-mail and phone number.

I got my first tattoo about 6 years ago. It is a elephant tattoo on my back. It's cool design, u have to really look at it, to know it's elephant. It's pretty cool looking. My next tattoo is going to be of my cats pawprint. Just have to get her to sit still, so I can mold her pawprint *L* Another tattoo that I am also gonna get is the name 'Kensington'. I want to get this on the lower part of my back. Kensington was a stray cat here in Toronto that was serverly abused and killed in a haness way. The first cruelty case that really affected me. I was not in the animal welfare field at this time. I thought I would get it, to represent all cruelty cases and that no animal passes in vain...give them justice.

But I won't be getting the two done before this contest end, But I will be getting them sooner then later.

Only if they look mysteriously like Elvis, trying to give the living a final message of love and world peace ...

I have to admit I love my animal/job related scars. I am always like ooo this one is from this and so on *L* And then again the story has to go along with it.

Everyone thinks I am strange...oh well.

Mine are “this one came from an Australian shepherd in ‘95, I think this one is a cat scratch from around ’65, this one came off of my truck in ’99, this one came from a motorcycle accident in ‘76” etc. etc.

Does a Phoenix count as an animal?
