Sabina Kelley for peta2
Take a look around … look to your left, look to your right. Tell me if you see any gorgeous pin-ups in sight. Chances are … you don't. But I'm about to change that! Meet Sabina Kelley—pin-up model, burlesque dancer, and the latest vixen to join peta2's "Ink, Not Mink" campaign.
Sabina is a long-time peta2 pal, and we think that her compassion for animals makes her as gorgeous on the inside as she is on the outside!
Like a modern-day Bettie Page or Marilyn Monroe (but with tons of awesome tattoos), Sabina is an icon in the pin-up world, and we're proud to partner with this true beauty to let people know that there's nothing glamorous about wearing fur. As the co-owner of two tattoo shops, Sabina sees a lot of gorgeous skin, but she would never wear the skin of a tormented, dead animal. What could possibly be glamorous about fur—which is produced by electrocuting, bludgeoning, and strangling terrified rabbits, foxes, minks, and even dogs and cats? We don't think there's anything fashionable about it, and neither does Sabina!
So without further adieu, here's our brand-new "Ink, Not Mink" public service announcement starring Sabina Kelley. Check it out, and take a stand against the cruelty of the fur industry by pledging never to wear fur!
It's hard to believe that people still buy and wear fur, since doing so directly supports the fur industry—an industry of misery. Millions of rabbits, foxes, minks, raccoons, and countless other animals are killed for their fur each year. After enduring horrible living conditions on fur farms, animals are beaten to death, strangled, killed by anal electrocution (which is used to avoid damaging their pelts), or even skinned alive. And it's all to profit a barbaric industry that peddles a product that no one needs. Check out our Q&A with Sabina to find out what motivated her to get involved with peta2 and learn about her other efforts to help animals—then take a stand by signing our pledge to never wear fur.
You can save animals, too, by promising never to wear fur. Take our pledge today.

I want to help animals by making compassionate clothing choices and encouraging others to do the same.
