Just wondering how many other people here have vegan tattoos?<br><br><br><br>
I got mine on Saturday, it was done by hand by the lovely <i>vegan</i> tattooist Adam Sage at Temple Tatu in Brighton, UK.<br><br><br><br>
It's hard to smile when you're doing this!!<br><br>

Cool tattoo. Seems like it would hurt a lot getting it were you did though. I don't have one yet (have to wait two more years until I'm 18), but I can't wait. There was another thread about vegan-related tattoos not long ago that will probably pop up if you do a search for it.

I do not have a vegan tattoo, as I'm not vegan (good reason, eh?) and I don't think I'd ever get one. I have considered an inner lip tattoo, but still kind of figuring out the specifics.

OUCH! I don't have any tats, and no guts to get one either! I only have a sterling silver ring, (on my finger), that says VEGAN on it. So I guess that shows you just exactly how much of a wimp I am! HA!

Although I got it while I was vegan, it is not a vegan tattoo - I have a tattoo that says 'vegetarian'.<br><a href="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/8/89/89efd1c5_vbattach5069.jpeg"><img alt="LL" src="http://cdn.veggieboards.com/8/89/525x525px-LL-89efd1c5_vbattach5069.jpeg" style="width:482px;height:525px;"></a>

When I saw this title I thought you meant that some tattoos had non-vegan 'ingredients' in them!<br><br><br><br>
I want to get a tattoo when I'm older...of a design in an old ecology book, quite random but it looks like a 'tribal' design but kind of unique, it's actually the inside of a kangaroo rat's lung...so it's a natural thing really!<br><br><br><br>
Is that a bit weird? Also does it seem anti-animal rights as it is drawn from the inside of an animal's body?

Actually, I've heard that some pigments used for tattoos aren't vegan. Or, now that I think about it, the glycerin that carries the pigment could be from animal sources.<br><br>
Either way, it's best to ask or go to a place that you know has vegan ink.

there are a few threads around here on vegan tattoo inks. A quick search should bring them up.

That lip one looks ouch! But cool!<br><br>
I have a baby chick w/ a halo on my back, one of the main things that inspired me to go vegan from vegetarian was seeing the male baby chicks at an egg factory get killed (on a movie)...<br><br>
I have vegan inspired art on my site, check it out:<br><br><a href="http://www.mvegan5.etsy.com" target="_blank">http://www.mvegan5.etsy.com</a><br><br>
thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
