Some of their current hottest-selling items are the heart, kidney, liver and lung transplant awareness t-shirts. With over 114,000 men, women and children awaiting a life-saving organ, help Artery Ink spread the word and encourage people to become organ donors by wearing or gifting their artistic and anatomical transplant shirts. Every ten minutes, someone else is added to the waiting list, and twenty people die each day waiting for an organ. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services statistics also say that 95% of adults support organ donation, but only 54% are actually signed up as donors. Artery Ink is doing what they can do to improve these statistics.
Behind the ink:
Mara and Gloria are the creators and artists behind Artery Ink. They came up with the concept for Artery Ink when they decided to eat healthier and learn more about how our bodies work. In changing what they ate and through appreciating and understanding their bodies more, everything else in their lives ended up changed too. It was so inspiring that they were prompted to share what they learned with the world.
