Tiny Miracles: A living wage for textile workers – Mumbai, India

Namasté Mumbai
On Friday February 15th we’ll be tattooing a part of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Mumbai, India for the first time. The Human Rights Tattoo event is dedicated to the rights of workers working in the garment industry. The garment industry exemplifies the challenges of global manufacturing: low wages, “flexible” contracts (or no contracts), and sweatshop conditions. We joined forces with Tiny Miracle Foundation and the ASN Bank to support the fight for a living wage for textile workers in India and everywhere else around the world!
 
When? 
15 February 2019, 11AM – 6PM
 
Where?
Tiny Miracles
First Floor
Mahatma Sports Club
17/B, BIT Chawl
Mumbai Central East – India
Near Chakkiwala (Flour mill), Opp. Gol Maidan
 
Who?
All are welcome. Note! For this special event 50% of the tattoo-spots will be reserved for people who are dealing with the challenges of working in the garment industry or who have made significant contributions to advance the rights of people working in global manufacturing.
 
Tattooist?
We’ll be working with the award winning tattoo artists from Iron Buzz Tattoos I voted as ‘the best tattoo studio in Mumbai’ by GQ India. Check out their work!
 
Procedure?
We have a limited amount tattoos available per event. We work with a first come first serve principle. So if you are determined not to go home without a Human Right Tattoo make sure you get at Tiny Miracles in time. The first people in line will receive a registration card with your letter on it. You can’t choose your letter but the font and your 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.
 
Pay As You Please
Human Rights Tattoos are not for free. We work with a Pay As You Please system to make our project accessible for everyone, no matter your background or budget.
  
Human Rights Tattoo depends on donations. We want to spread Human Rights Tattoo all around the world. Therefore we need money to pay for (tattoo) materials, travels to third world countries and organization. Your donation of any amount is highly appreciated!
