Welcome to behind-the-ink.com

We are currently accepting submissions of photos and stories

The art of tattoo in telling the story of love, loss, and resilience surrounds us daily. The behind-the-ink project provides a place to share these stories; to create a new and modern language with which to share our experience with death and loss and create a place for those that have left an indelible mark on our lives to be seen and heard. These are the beautiful and inspirational stories of our mothers and fathers, our brothers and sisters, our friends, our teachers and our life’s inspirations.

The behind-the-ink project invites you to share your story and become a part of the new and growing voice of love loss and resilience.
