Veganism has become a way of life for so many people and it’s only logical that they remain true to their beliefs in their entire lifestyle. And that’s where vegan tattoos come into play - it’s guaranteeing that another part of your routine becomes cruelty free for animals.
Nonvegan varieties may contain bone char, glycerin from animal fat, gelatin from hooves, or shellac from crushed beetle shells. So as you're checking out tattoo shops, ask if they use vegan inks or if they can order some. A vegan ink can use ingredients like natural logwood to create a black color, and a vegetable-based glycerin, as well as witch hazel or ethanol.
At Lovely Canvas in Victoria, BC I only use Vegan Certified Ink and I have Vegan after care products.
