Animals trapped for fur suffer excruciating pain before trappers crush their chests or bludgeon them to death. On fur farms, animals are poisoned, gassed, or anally electrocuted or have their necks broken. In China, now the world’s leading fur exporter, animals—including cats and dogs—are often skinned alive.

Hart, co-owner of Las Vegas­based Hart & Huntington Tattoo Company, first got involved with PETA during his marriage to longtime PETA pal Pink.

Other notables appearing in PETA’s “Ink, Not Mink” ad series include Dennis Rodman, Tommy Lee, and Miami Ink star Ami James.
