Animal Rights Tattoos

Sia Furler

Sia has crudely-drawn dogs tattooed all over her left forearm in all colors of the rainbow. Some were drawn by her best friend Dallas Clayton who is a children’s book illustrator, and others were created by her fans. She began working on her “dogpark sleeve” in April 2011 and asked fans for their help. “Please draw and upload an outline of a dog so that I may tattoo it on my arm. I’m starting a dog park. Probs the shittest will make the cut,” she tweeted. “This whole dog outline for tattoos thing is blowing my mind! can’t wait to get them all!!!” Piece by piece, she been filling in the whole forearm with goofy looking dogs.

Child dancer Maddie Ziegler, who gets Sia’s tattoos drawn on her arms when performing with the singer, told Vulture “pretty much her whole arm is filled with kids’ drawings of dogs. And she really likes dogs and kids and stuff.”

Sia is a huge fan of dogs and has three of her own: Lick-Lick (or Licky), Pantera, and Cereal. She is also a vegan and an animal rights activist. She has partnered with several organizations, including ASPCA and PETA, and worked with local rescues to set up dog adoption fairs at her concerts.

Annie Ilonzeh

Annie Ilonzeh has her right wrist decorated with a beautiful detailed elephant tattoo.  It continues around the inside of her wrist with a background of swirls to give the inking a bracelet look. It’s actually a cover-up of an older writing tattoo which we can’t fully decipher but it seems to start with “Never.”

Elephants have a very special place in Annie’s heart. She described them as her spirit animal and as “an incredible symbol of strength power and peace” in an instagram post. She spoke to PETA about why believes elephants shouldn’t be used for circus entertainment.

They take these animals when they’re babies, strip them from their mothers, their families, and break down their spirits…They’re super emotional creatures, and to have that calf stripped of their mom by humans and abused is the most painful thing to see.  And I feel like if the public were a lot more knowledgeable about the way that they were being trained, where it’s not on a reward system it’s on a punishment system, then circuses would not exist and they should not exist.

She has also spoken up supporting America’s bans on importing elephant tusks and ivory. “Elephants are phenomenal, remarkable, beautiful creatures and we need them around. This is their planet too,” she wrote.
