Heartwarming Photographs Of Rescued Dogs & Their Tattooed Owners

0For the past two-and-a-half years, Nashville, Tennessee-based photographer Brian Batista has been capturing images of rescued dogs and their tattooed owners. Batista started his ‘Tattoos & Rescues’ series after he noticed similarities between the way people treat homeless animals and tattooed individuals.

“They would have memorial tattoos of family members, art they loved, tattoos that tell stories of their lives and be walking with the happiest dogs you have ever seen. And people would yell at them saying, ‘That dog is a killer! Stay away from my family!’” he told The Huffington Post.

He also highlighted the wrongful killing of misunderstood dog breeds because of the way they look, adding that judging a person or animal by their appearance is “bullying”. Check out some photographs below and follow the project here.
