Gilbert Arenas Bares Tattoo in PETA 'Ink Not Mink' Campaign


What better time to roll out a sexy anti-fur campaign by a professional athlete than right after he gets punished for storing a gun in his locker, right?

PETA yesterday unveiled a new campaign featuring suspended Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas.

Writes PETA: "NBA guard Gilbert Arenas scores points for animals and joins other legendary sports stars and celebrities by posing for PETA's 'Ink, Not Mink' campaign. Gilbert shows off his tattoos and bares his skin to help animals keep theirs...Gilbert's a fierce competitor on the court, but it's his compassion toward animals off the court that makes him a true all-star. Join Gilbert in refusing to contribute to animal suffering by not buying or wearing fur or fur trim!"

One more shot, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Personally, I will continue to add to my already heavily-tattooed self precisely because people like Tank won't "want to be around" me.

    Hold on, for 1, Arenas IS a hottie and I've thought so ever since he played for the University of Arizona.

    For 2, Arenas also has a rep for being a bit of a weirdo (in that sense, this PETA advertisement is not surprising).

    And 3, speaking for myself, I am not privileged and white.

  3. @TANK--p.e.t.a. does NOT mean please. end. tatto. abuse. But since you appear so dead set against them I suggest you begin such an initiative...personally, I don't think that all ink is stink...and like so much else it's all in how it is done, and highly subjective according to one's taste...the body as canvas, no?

  4. Wow, this thread brought out all the trolls! Look, the cries of "trash" and "racist" are beginning. No wonder we get nowhere as a community. Can't even post a pic of a PETA ad without the bitches coming to roost.
