VETERAN INK is a digital hub devoted to supporting and telling the stories behind Veterans’ military-inspired ink. 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 150,000 Veterans. 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 150,000 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 have PTSD, 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.
We plan 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.
