Rescue Ink Unleashed on Nat Geo
Tomorrow, at 10PM ET, is the season premier of Rescue Ink on National Geographic, and if there's any tattoo crew worthy of a TV show it's these guys: hard, tattooed NY badasses with a mission to save animals from abuse. They're not cops, animal experts or even animal control. But they are effective in (firmly) encouraging misguided owners to give up their pets if it is in the best interest of the animals.
On their weekly one-hour Nat Geo show, the crew takes viewers on ride-alongs as they work 24/7 fielding over 100 calls a week at their headquarters on Long Island to confront alleged animal abusers, rescue fighting dogs, and investigate stolen animals.
And yes, their tattoos play a part in their effectiveness...in the intimidation factor. Check their tattoo collection here.
For a preview, here's a video overview of the show:
