Human Rights Tattoo

BY SANDER VAN BUSSEL
@ VOL 8 ON DEC 03, 2013

The Human Rights Tattoo project is an art project to create awareness and underline the importance of Human Rights. The idea originates from Sander van Bussel. The murder of fellow artist Steven ‘Nyash’ Nygah in Nairobi motivated him to pursue this idea. HRT's goal is to tattoo the complete text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on individuals, letter by letter. The complete text of this declaration contains 6773 letters. Each person gets one character.
