Safety Pin Tattoos Signaling Allyship

Stories1 min Read

After Donald Trump's election, many people feel they may be discriminated against, so people are using safety pins to show support.

The election fallout the United States and some foreign countries are feeling is massive. President-elect Donald Trump is a polarizing person, to say the least. The people who elected him to the highest office in the land have nothing but faith in him, while his detractors believe he is a racist, bigoted, xenophobic demagogue.

The safety pin movement has taken over the tattoo community. #Safetypin #Safetypinmovement #SafetyPinTattoo

People who support these marginalized and disenfranchised groups are letting people know they're not alone in their fight against injustice. By simply wearing a safety pin, it shows they are an ally. It's a small marker to let people know where they stand when it comes to fighting these people who have been the victims of prejudice for too long.

Many people are worried about living in Donald Trump's America. They fear that bigotry will rule the land, and white supremacists will rear their ugly heads to commit acts of racism across the country. People in the LGBTQ community are afraid of having their rights taken away. Women are concerned that old, out-of-touch politicians will determine their bodily rights.
