VETERAN INK is a digital hub devoted to supporting and telling the stories behind Veteran tattoos. Founded in 2016 by a father of a USMC Veteran, seeking to make a difference in the lives of other Veterans suffering from mental health issues after serving their country.
Since its inception, the organization has grown to be a community of over 175,000 Veterans. Above all, we are committed to creating videos to help Veterans nationwide, even if it’s one Veteran at a time.
VETERAN INK is a non-profit organization with a community of over 175,000 Veterans. We are dedicated to spreading awareness of Veterans’ mental health struggles by sharing the stories behind their military experiences and service-related tattoos. For many Veterans, especially those who are struggling with service-connected disabilities or mental health conditions, getting tattooed is a form of escapism. Tattoos help individuals share their stories without ever having to tell them. That’s why we believe behind every Veteran tattoo is a story aching to be told.
With your help, we have been able to revamp our efforts in helping Veterans share the stories behind their service-related tattoos and military experience.
We truly believe in creating a space for open dialogue where Veterans can help one another cope with their experiences and traumas.
We take pride in being able to help Veterans get tattoos as a form of artistic expression, coping method, and tribute to their military service.
