Gilbert Arenas Chooses 'Ink, Not Mink'

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 Arenas' Anti-Fur Ad
Gilbert Arenas' Anti-Fur Ad
 

Foxes, coyotes, minks, rabbits—even cats and dogs—are bludgeoned, strangled, and genitally electrocuted in the name of fashion. To avoid damaging their pelts, workers even skin some animals alive.

Gilbert is a three-time NBA All-Star and a three-time member of the All-NBA Team. His sizzling moves have earned him nicknames such as "Agent Zero" and "Hibachi," a Japanese word that means "bowl of fire." 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!

Hi Kristin.  It's great when a well-known personality stands up for animals.  Glad to see that Gilbert can do something right.  And thank you for always standing up for and supporting the welfare of animals.

I would have to wonder if he's not just doing this to generate some good publicity for himself. However, for the moment I'll give him the benefit of the doubt. In any event, it will raise awareness for the cause.

While I'm not a fan of tattoos, I certainly appreciate what Arenas and other notables are achieving with this promotion.

Kudos to him and the others....and to you too Kristin for spreading the word.

I guess I don't care how bad he's been - if he can help with the anti-fur message, then I'm happy.

This is a great campaign.  I have to agree with Renee (#24) he is quite the eye-candy in these shots.  It's sad to see how a few stupid and irresponsible decisions by Arenas are set to ruin a great career.
