One very famous rock star from the city of Los Angeles has been making headline news for giving his celebrity endorsement for animal rights. "Dave Navarro [of the rock band Jane's Addiction] is putting a face—and a his well-built, heavily tattooed body— [to good use helping] the hundreds of thousands of animals worldwide who are poisoned, blinded, and killed every year in tests for the cosmetics industry..." claimed news the source Artist Direct in a new special feature article published on Jan. 10.
PETA recently named Los Angeles their 2012 city of the year for its city residents' willingness to embrace the concept of promoting Meatless Monday. LA-ist says, "L.A. was chosen for several reasons, including... becoming the biggest American city to prohibit pet shops from selling animals from breeders and puppy mills."
Contact Music photos taken on the streets of California of David Beckham modeling underwear confirm tattooed stars might look hot to the naked eye, but other organizations like PETA think Dave Navarro naked for animal rights is a much sexier advertising concept that appeals to to heart and mind. The soccer player might be easy on the eyes to look at, but without reason to gaze aside from deciding if his underpants are stuffed with anything most people are simply gawking.
The group's new ad features very graphic representation of the goth-looking musician sitting naked on the floor. His back is up against the wall and his makeup has been done to simulate looking like he is bleeding from his eyes. Their art department made it look like he's missing skin patches to make it appear as if someone had been doing product testing on him. But no matter how gross or shocking the image may seem, the rocker obviously has an admirable physique -- and it's that L.A. style of having a fit and trim figure than still makes the ad sexy despite its macabre theme.
But that sex appeal is part of Navarro's mysterious ways. The celebrity judge on "Ink Master" is very mindful about using his sensational body art to accomplish societal good. While other tattooed male star celebrities like David Beckham have been taking their clothes off to promote their own modeling careers, Navarro proudly has been using his sexy tatts and chiseled body to make a social issues statement on behalf of laboratory animals.
Showing off his body art, piercings, and muscles, the tattoo guru really accomplishes his goal of reminding people of his "Ink Not Mink" slogan. Navarro's graphic images really created a visual reminder about why he thinks it is important for people to refuse to buy cosmetics that were tested on animals in science labs.
