NFL linebacker Terrell Suggs joins other celebs for 'Ink Not Mink' campaign

Next time you watch the Baltimore Ravens play, keep an eye out for #55, linebacker Terrell Suggs, who has just taken a stand against the use of animal fur.

Like many people, Suggs had no idea of the heinous conditions the animals endure for the use of their fur. After viewing a video revealing violent acts against animals, Suggs made the decision to raise awareness by joining forces with PETA in their "Ink, Not Mink' campaign.

Alongside other celebs and athletes such as Willis McGahee, Tommy Lee, Chad Ochocinco, and Dave Navarro, Terrell Suggs has bared his tattoos as a symbol that he rather go without clothing than wear fur.

Each star has photos and videos with detailing why they decided to join PETA in their fight against fur. Suggs says, "I hit people for a living, and even I couldn't bear just to handle the cruelty to these animals.......if you can endure through 10 seconds of the video, you gotta watch it."
