Giving pitbulls a second chance: Brandon Bond

November 24th, 2008 by

Brandon Bond is my hero.

The man from Smyrna, Georgia is not only an absolutely amazing tattoo artist (he was voted Tattoo Artist of the Year in 2005 and 2006. A look at any of his work will have you knowing why) but also a proactive philanthropist, saving the lives of pitbulls who would otherwise be left for dead. 

Brandon – who has recently used his own hard-earned cash to found All or Nothing Pitbull Rescue – has been working closely with local pitbull rescue organizations for over a decade and has successfully managed to save over two-hundred dogs through in-home fostering, rehabilitation and adoption.

When former Atlanta Falcons NFL douchebag quarterback Michael Vick was convicted and sentenced to 23 months in prison for his involvement in a disgusting dogfighting enterprise, Brandon’s had a hand in the rescue and rehabilitation of three of Vick’s fighting dogs. His journey with these dogs was chronicled in the documentary VICKtory to the Underdog, Hell and Back – the proceeds of which go straight back into the hands of Georgia’s pitbull rescue organizations, ensuring that more of these dogs from sorry situations will be able to live happy, healthy lives in loving homes. 

Brandon has industriously combined the All or Nothing Tattoo brand, the tattoo community (i.e. YOU hint hint), his clients and his cause and has managed to raise awareness and some much needed cash for pitbull pups in need. The heavily trafficked All or Nothing Tattoo website promotes the studio’s fundraisers and charity auctions (such as this one) and sells calendars and Stranglehold items benefiting pitbull- and animal-welfare groups.
