We were silenced by the trauma of Hurricane Katrina.
As a world, we raised $4.25 billion in donations.
As a world, we cared.
But time moved on. People went back to their lives...Other things happened .... Darfur, Swine Flu, the recession, the Oil Spill, Haiti..and slowly people forgot to remember.
Why do the things that matter to the world..
Become trends? Why do they rise, and then they fall?
What the world empathized with, mattered to you...forever?
And thus, the Social Tattoo Project was born.
Every Monday and Thursday in July, a tattoo will be created to memorialize a historic moment that we should never forget
But those who are getting these tattoos wont decide what it will be of.
That part is up to you.
Every week, we will post 4 top trends. To vote, tweet @social_tattoo. Say whatever you want, plus #socialtattoo and your #favorite trending topic of the four released. Which ever #trend wins will be the subject of the tattoo.
We are declaring a strike on come and go compassion.

Join us and let's see what happens.
