Human Rights Tattoo is full of dreams and has the power to make a bigger impact, and we sure can use the support of Hong Kong’s impact investors! Aiming to nurture the most vulnerables, refugees, domestic helpers, and minorities; Human Rights Tattoo strives to take a step higher in change for the future of Human Rights. On this special evening we will invite you to get involved by sharing your ideas and network, by buying the artworks, or by getting tattooed.
Those brave, ink-loving souls get a chance to join in by getting tattooed one letter of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Please register for a Human Rights Tattoo with firstname.lastname@example.org before October 6th. We have limited tattoo spots available: if we exceed the maximum amount we’ll make a selection by lottery.
At arrival you will receive a registration card with your letter on it. You can’t choose your letter but the font and the position on your body is up to you. You can pick a font type from the Human Rights Tattoo fonts catalogue that will be available on the spot. After your tattoo is done we take a super up-close picture of your tattoo that will be published on our website together with your statement. Please think about your statement (in English) upfront. A good statement is personal and gives an insight in your life and your personal relation to human rights.
We work with a Pay As You Please system to make our project accessible for everyone, no matter your background or budget. Your contribution of any amount is highly appreciated and will be used exclusively to set up a Human Rights Tattoo event at QueerKIFF International Film Festival in Kampala, Uganda!
