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.
Vet to Vet Tattoos
We arrange and fund Veteran to Veteran tattoo sessions, which serve as a mental release for Veterans suffering from mental illnesses.
A portion of the proceeds goes to renting video equipment and a photo studio to create more videos that share Veterans’ stories.
VETERAN INK provides and maintains a close-knit community where veterans can exchange advice and stories of their time in the service.
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.
