Tattoos to save the world

Filed under: Internet, misc. — Jonathan @ 9:39 am

How far would you go to help save an endangered animal? How about getting it tattooed on you?

That’s exactly what hundreds of volunteers signed up for last weekend at ExtInked, where people came from far and wide to have one of Britain’s most endangered species tattooed on their body, making them a life long ambassador for that species. Each volunteer filled out an application explaining why they deserved to be the canvas for their chosen flora or fauna. Of the many hundred that applied, only one hundred were chosen for the honor.

Tattoos tend to be a natural conversation starter and this seems like a more modern and “hip” way to spread the word.
