An Awesome Update from DeAnna Scott,
who got the below version of Rescue Angel done for LA Ink!

"Well, I did it… I was selected for LA Ink and had the Rescue Angel with the cat put on my right upper arm. It is about 4 inches long and looks GREAT!!! The finished work is exactly like the original with a few enhancements. During my interview I was able to get the word out about spay/neuter, rescue – etc etc. I also made sure they knew that some proceeds from the sale of the tattoo (by you) goes to the animals. My tattoo artist was Amy, who is actually a guest artist on the show – and she is going to be working with a dog rescue soon too, which is great.

Keep your fingers crossed that it makes it to the air waves. This was an awesome opportunity to get the message out!"
DeAnna Scott

Here's another email that came to me recently I wanted to share: "Dear Tamira, I just wanted you to know, that I came across your website recently and it absolutely touched my heart in ways I can never put into words. As an animal rescuer for 30 years now, I was looking for some kind of animal art work that I could possibly turn into a tattoo. I have only one tattoo that I got at the age of 45 and it is on the lower back where it can never be seen, but I wanted something that stood for what I have done for the last 30 years. For what I believe in. Deeply believe in and thats when I came across your site. The Rescue Angel. It was so perfect. No, it was beyond perfect. Tamira, my husband, Chris and I have devoted our entire married life to the rescue of abandoned and abused animals. All of our animals, even the pure breeds, were all abandoned. I have saved animals from near death and had the owners say they wanted the dogs back even though they had collars embedded in their skin to the point that it took surgery to remove it. I could go on and on. I have stories that are so hard to believe but I also have very good stories that touch the heart, just like every rescuer. I'm in the process of ordering your book right now and the Rescue Angel tattoo. I'm so very glad I came across your website. God bless you and everything you do!"— Sincerely, Karen "Lynne" Jobe Gloster, Louisiana

Well, I finally did it! Just a week before my trial, to give me courage...and it did! I'm still in denial about it being permanent, though, so don't tell me it is! (See the side panel and bottom of the page for other rescuers tattoos and how they gave it their own special touches.)

I've always been very ambivalent about getting a tattoo...my best friend has several, as do some of my other friends, but it seemed like such a big decision. Even when I was younger and cooler, I just couldn't bring myself to do it.

For me, it was about never finding a tattoo that I could really commit to for life. LIFE. That's a long time to be 'with' something on your body, when we are always reinventing ourselves, changing, growing.

I got the idea that maybe if I created a tattoo that really meant something to me, it would be something I could be proud to wear for life. The tattoo I was most tempted by in the past was a black and white angel. As I thought about that tattoo and the fact that we are all angels for the animals in our rescue work, the idea for the Animal Rescue Angel tattoo came into being. I spent quite a few hours researching different looks, drawing, reworking...until I finally felt it had 'arrived' at it's perfect destination.

I plan to place this tattoo on my inner left wrist. I'm honored if other animal rescuers like it enough to license it for their own personal tattoo, see below for purchase details. If you are in rescue, you are most definitely an angel for the animals, and have probably saved countless dogs/cats from certain death, either along the highway, in a shelter, or dying abandoned and alone in a backyard. Tossed carelessly aside by members of our society that either don't know, don't care, or turn a blind eye to what becomes of the animals.

I salute you. I am proud of you, for I know how difficult it is to have a houseful of animals, all needing more than you have to give. To feel like you just can't do it a moment longer, but yet you do because you are all they have. You are their only chance.

When I look at my Animal Rescue Angel tattoo, I will not only be lifted up by the contributions I've made for the animals, but I will be saluting each and every one of you who also work so tirelessly for them.

You are appreciated!

I've been asked to sell the same tattoo in a temporary version, so that everyone, even those angels who don't want a permanent tattoo, can sport them as well. And here they are!

The temporary Rescue Angel Tattoo measures approximately 1"x3", and my preliminary, three day test is showing them to stick it out well, so far so good, unlike some temporary tattoos that start to fall off the minute you put them on.
