Inked Soul is a community of creatives (inked and not) devoted to our artists, inspired by self-expression, and on a mission to have a positive impact on suicide- one life at a time.
Inked Soul is a unique platform and marketplace that utilizes self-expression as a means to educate about and directly prevent suicide. We work with artists worldwide to create an expansive selection of well-designed products, each one customized with their original designs. These designs tell our artists’ stories, and allow them to build a deeper bond with their community.
Whether you choose to customize your own piece or choose one of our artist’s designs, we believe that self-expression builds a deeper bond within the artist community.
To aid us in our mission to have a positive impact on suicide, we have partnered with 3 impactful organizations: Suicide Awareness Voices of Education, International Association for Suicide Prevention, and the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. With our partners, we share the common goal of preventing suicide through public awareness, education, and crisis prevention resources.
How we are working together:
➜ Inked Soul and Save.org have joined together to educate students through the LEADS program which educates students on depression symptoms, the link between depression and suicide, the warning signs of suicide, seeking help and school/community resources available. Every $100 purchased through Inked Soul supplies 8 high school students with a highly effective, 3-day, 1-hour per day interactive depression and suicide prevention classroom experience.
➜ The International Association for Suicide Prevention is a worldwide organization dedicated to preventing suicidal behavior, alleviating its effects, and providing a forum for academics, mental health professionals, crisis workers, volunteers and suicide survivors. Founded in 1960, IASP now includes professionals and volunteers from 77 countries. Inked Soul is proud to be working with such an influential organization working towards suicide prevention.
➜ The National suicide prevention lifeline is a national network of over 150 local crisis centers that provide free and confidential support to people in suicidal crisis or emotional distress 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They are working to improve crisis resources and prevent suicide by empowering individuals, advancing professional best practices, and building awareness. Inked Soul is excited to represent an internationally recognized resource that also offers active initiatives towards suicide prevention.
Our vision is to be the largest, worldwide marketplace promoting self-expression, supporting artists, and making a tremendous impact on saving lives. Together, we can make a dramatic impact on suicide prevention.
