Dave Navarro posed for peta2’s “Ink, Not Mink” campaign to help spread the word about the horrors of the fur industry. The Jane’s Addiction guitarist and Dark Matter radio show host stripped down to his tats to urge his fans to “be comfortable in your own skin, and let animals keep theirs.” And this long-time Navarro fan couldn’t be happier!

A rock star in every sense of the word, Navarro has talent and intensity, which has made him one of the most sought-after guitarists in the music world. Since making a name for himself with Jane’s Addiction, Navarro has worked with everyone from Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, and Guns N’ Roses, to the Chili Peppers, Billy Corgan, and Christina Aguilera. And as for his charisma and brooding good looks, let’s just say that they haven’t hurt his career either, and we’re glad that he’s using them to speak up for animals. See what else he had to say in his interview with peta2.

A reformed fur-wearer, Navarro has sworn off fur since learning where it comes from. “Several years ago I saw video footage of animals being skinned alive and screaming, and it honestly is the most horrific, inhumane thing I’ve ever seen.”

Millions of rabbits, chinchillas, foxes, minks, dogs, cats, and other animals are killed every year so that they can be made into clothing and accessories.

“There’s an industry of people that support and promote this for vanity, for a dollar. It’s what’s wrong with the human race.” – Dave Navarro.
