American Proves That Not All Pitbulls Are Aggressive

A photographer shot a series of photos that is changing perceptions about fighter dogs and tattoos.

In order to destroy stereotypes about people with tattoos and fighter dogs, an American photographer Brian Batista made a series of photos called “Tattoos & Rescues.” In the series he portrayed friendly pit bulls from the streets or animal shelters and their new tattooed guardians. The idea to create the a project was born when he noticed that society has a stigma against fighter dogs as well against people who have pictures tattooed on their body.

“Not all visibly tattooed people are in hate groups, just like not all pit bulls are vicious. Ask a person why they have the tattoo they do before you judge them,” writes Batista.
