Ami James: Ink, Not Mink

Written by PETA | January 24, 2008

Ami James, the star of the hit TLC reality show Miami Ink, is also the new face of our anti-fur campaign, showing off his 40 colorful tattoos in a new “Ink, Not Mink” ad for PETA. He’s unveiling the ad at his Miami club—the Love Hate Lounge—this evening, and will be renaming the venue “Love Animals, Hate Fur” for the night. Needless to say, we’re really excited about Ami’s involvement with this campaign. You can see Ami’s new ad and tattoo design here, but in the meantime here’s a PETA Files exclusive video interview with Ami James that took place at the ad shoot:

    Thanks so much it makes me feel so good when celebrities change their ways or speak up for animals so many people look up to them and admire them. It’s a great way for consumers to change. I hope to see more Celebs speaking up for Animal rights.
