War Ink was borne of a desire to improve communication and compassion between returning American vets, their families, and the public at large. The soldiers' body art serves as a springboard to learning about their unique experiences in wartime. With powerful documentary style photography and video interviews produced by StoryCorps, the website aims not only to honor their service, but give them--and our country--a new means of understanding the effects of war on both our soldiers and society.
The War Ink project was featured by over 150 major publications including Mashable, PBS News Hour, USA Today, BuzzFeed, and the Chicago Tribune. The project was also nominated for a Webby Ward and was included in Print Magazine's Regional Design Annual.
