Sasha Adler, member of the Russian protest group Pussy Riot, has had one letter of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights tattooed on her shoulder. The ‘S’ of article 19: ‘Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expreSsion’ was inked onto her right shoulder.

Human Rights Tattoo is an international art project that was started in 2012 by Dutch artist, Sander van Bussel. The aim of the project is to raise awareness and underline the importance of Human Rights. Its goal is to tattoo the complete Declaration of Human Rights on individuals, letter by letter. The complete text of the declaration contains 6773 letters. Each person gets one character. Once complete, there will be a group of 6773 people from all around the world walking together with the complete text of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights inked on their bodies. Sasha is the 3262nd participant.
