The 'Why We Ink' campaign created by Jules Casting takes a look at the inspirational stories of tattoos that have a link to cancer. The book will share the emotional stories that deal with both tragedy and triumph, as well as feature some of the stunning captures of cancer related tattoos. All of the proceeds generated by the 'Why We Ink' book will go directly to cancer care support groups.

This wonderful campaign is important for a plethora of different reasons. The most important being the emotionally charged stories that will at once inspire and provoke awareness about the rampaging disease while at the same time raising funds to help cancer care support groups. Along with that exemplary cause is the often unassociated idea of getting your body inked as an act of significant symbolism. Tattoos are unfairly portrayed as frivolous a lot of the time, but the idea of an emotionally charged piece of art on your body should be thought of as a powerfully impactful act.

With support from various celebrities and a remarkable community of volunteers, the 'Why We Ink' campaign is sure to inspire the lives of anyone who has dealt with cancer. There are a lot more details to the cause as well as more phenomenal photographs at both the 'indiegogo' page as well as the campaign's Facebook page. While there still isn't a cure for cancer, every bit of support directed to those dealing with it will surely help.
