The social Tattoo Project

The Social Tattoo Project is a social experiment to make empathy permanent—instead of fleeting—for world issues.

Each week, volunteers would get a tattoo that represents a worldly issue—the topic of the tattoo determined by Twitter votes. Four trends would be posted, but the most tweeted Twitter trend would be used. To vote for the topic, tweet #socialtattoo and the #trend you like out of the four to @social_tattoo.

So far five volunteers have received #human trafficking, #Haiti, #poverty, #Pray for Japan, and #Norway tattoos.

This initiative that blends art, human interest and social media, is to make the world empathize and care about the issues—inked in skin—forever.
