Empathy Tattoos

Weโ€™ve heard about people getting the empathy symbol as a tattoo, from Texas to Germany, from Ghana to Australia, and around the world! We appreciate this permanent commitment to spreading the message about the importance of empathy! Check out the ways people have put the empathy symbol permanently in their lives and out front to the world. If you donโ€™t want to go as far as a tattoo, though, consider using the empathy symbol as your signature under your name on your e-mail. You can get a print-ready version from our Materials page. Have you got other ideas? Please share them with us and weโ€™ll put you in our Empathy Symbol Gallery.

Amanda says, “I love this movement. I am an introverted person by nature and though I consider myself considerate, empathy isn’t second nature for me. That is why I chose to have a permanent reminder that I need to try to see the world through others’ eyes. It’s my feather ๐Ÿ™‚ “

An inspirational symbol indeed. Hopefully I can increase awareness of the importance of this level of conciousness here in Ghana. George Aboagye

My name is Fernando and I'm a psychiatrist here in Brazil. I always loved the definition and the discussion about empathy. I also think the whole world would be better if everyone simply started exercising empathy everyday.

I got a tattoo of the empathy symbol both to remind myself of a humongous part of me as well as to educate others on empathy. Empathy has played a huge role in my life. Without empathy, I wouldn't be able to help out so many people on a daily basis as I do now. It's truly a vow to always try my hardest to understand others. Please share!! I'd love to see this uploaded on the website.
