Tattoos For Tibet
The issue of Tibet’s sovereignty has been an extremely contentious and political one since Tibet lost its independence to the Chinese Communist Revolution in 1958. The country’s spiritual leader, His Holiness The Dalai Lama, has since lived in exile in Dharamasala, India. The Tibetan people continue to struggle for their independence from China. Despite a renewed crackdown on basic human rights during the last two years, Tibetans have chosen to remain nonviolent and their hopes for freedom are undiminished.
On October 7, 2010, tattoo artists from across the globe will join the “Tattoos For Tibet” project and donate their wages from at least one tattoo to Students for a Free Tibet to commemorate the Tibetan people’s nonviolent resistance to Chinese occupation.
The Tattooed Heart is proud to take part in this event.
Artists involved will also provide one piece of Tibetan inspired flash, which will be compiled together and sold to raise even more green for a Free Tibet.
Wanna join the party? You can by contacting myspace.com/tattoosfortibet or on Facebook: Tattoos-for Tibet
It is righteous to be free!
