"I'm a huge supporter of the arts! To take something that society may consider to be different and make it beautiful, original, and acceptable is something I truly support and believe in."
"The reasons behind - and creative artwork involved - in getting a tattoo is incredibly personal. Why We Ink is a really interesting (and very 2013) way to look at how people deal with cancer and honor their loved ones"
Ed Robertson (Barenaked Ladies)
"Because Jules is an unstoppable force for good! Her brother was a really special guy, and I love the idea of the project."
" WHY WE INK is a celebration of empowerment for Survivors! Tattoos commemorate milestones in our lives, more inspired when we have survived something so significant that we need to record it, forever in our skin. WHY WE INK is a collection of our visual tributes to VICTORY."
W Brett Wilson
"I came on board because Cancer has stuck every member of my family - except one sister - Shelley - who chose to "ink" the F*ckCancer logo that I wore on a bracelet - onto her ankle. The tribute is really to our mother who passed away to lung cancer some 25 years ago."
Sitara Hewitt – Little Mosque on the Prairie
"Why We Ink" to me is about people choosing art and expression in the face of difficulty: it's about hope."
Rob Dyer – Skate4Cancer
"I became a part of the Why We Ink community to help aid in the fight against cancer and share my story about our organization, Skate4Cancer, while supporting all other cancer groups involved. I tattooed my body with Skate4Cancer themed tattoos to honour those I've lost, most importantly my mother. Through this ink, she is always with me on my journey. These tattoos will be on me forever, just like my commitment to the fight."
