Waka Flocka Flame is giving new meaning to the tattoos.

The  24 year-old Atlanta rapper will be working with People for Ethical Treatment for Animals (PETA) on their “Ink, Not Mink” campaign.

The campaign is a new twist from the recent PETA ads, which have showcased nude photos of celebrities who would rather go naked than wear fur. In their new advertisements, the organization brings the focus on animal mistreatment through an alternative option. Celebrities in the campaign speak out on the issue by claiming to choose body art over animal furs. Waka Flokca Flame joins Lady Gaga, Mariah Carey, and Pink.
“Animals should be treated the same way as you would a kid,” Waka Flocka told XXL. “Would you want someone just to walk up and skin your kid? Hell no!”

The campaign will launch on February 22 in Los Angeles.

  • Oh, because Waka Flocka Flame is REALLY the type of person I want to be looking up to… *sarcastic voice*

    And I’m in agreement with the people above me. Though animals shouldn’t be killed off into extinction, how about some ethical treatment or some justice for people?

    When Michael Vick was sentenced, I said that “an animal’s life is worth more than an African American’s life in this country,” and events keep happening to prove me right.

    Maybe I should have been born a dachshund instead of a person…but not a brown one though O_o

      I’ve heard so many people comment on people who support animal-right issues, saying why don’t they back saving people?

      Well, someone has to care about animals, and I always say, at least they’re supporting some cause, vs a majority of people who support nothing.

      As far as Michael Vick, he deserved what he got. And it was SEVERAL dog’s lives taken by him, and he only served a small amount of time in jail, so to say an animal’s life is worth more than an African American’s life isn’t a fair comparison. Apparently, several animals’ torturous deaths are only worth one man’s short time in jail.

      We’ve bred dogs to be 100 percent reliant on us (most don’t have the “wolf” instincts to survive anymore), and it’s a shame how little rules we have to prevent their abuse. I live in SW Atlanta, and it kills me to see how many abandoned dogs there are in communities like mine…people seem to have no regard for their lives, whereas that attitude toward animal life changes based on what area of town you’re in. Sad, sad.
