Share Your Story

[Note: Scroll down to share for Tattoosday!]

We would love to help you share your story! To do so, please fill out the form below to provide further information about your experience.

NOTE: Your name is not required. However, if you would like to share your story publicly, and receive art, we would like some way of contacting you. You will ALWAYS have the option to remain anonymous throughout this entire process. Even if you change your mind right before printing, your needs are our FIRST priority.

We have a great Team of Artists who are willing to help visualize your resilience and survival. Please indicate a preference if you have one.

All survivors who reach out to us are welcome to keep their identity hidden. We ask no questions for justification for this. If you want to be anonymous, you got it. If you are comfortable sharing publicly, please indicate!
Select the topic of which your story is most related.
You are welcome to share as much or as little of your story upfront. Share what you are comfortable with. And if you'd like to discuss our process, just say that and we will follow up with you. There is NO obligation for you to share your full story with us immediately. However, if you wish to share your story now, we ask survivors to share at least 500 words for their story, with the average being around 750-1200 words. Thanks!


Katy and I are big tattoo lovers and we believe in BOTH the storytelling quality of tattoos as well as the healing quality of tattoos. So! We are launching TATTOOSDAY at The Art of Survival!

As the image says, send us a picture of a tattoo or tattoos that have a significant story that is tied to your survival in life and write at least 400 words (you can write as many as you'd like) about the tattoo, it's meaning, and what it means to you today.

These stories will all run on Tuesdays! One per week! So you have plenty of time to submit them to us!

The caveat with TATTOOSDAY is that we will not be making you a free piece of art, instead, your ink IS the art we will share with the story—which makes the most sense. BUT we will send you some stickers for sharing your story with us!


NOTE: You can share anonymously, but if you'd like us to send you some stickers for your submissions, a name would be helpful!
Be sure to send a high-resolution image of your tattoo to our email at
