vegantattoos.com tattoos for, by, and on vegans
Categories: uncategorized

Hello vegans and aspiring vegans, hows it going?  I’ve been recovering from watching the Foul Play movie by Mercy for Animals on Sunday at Studio 35.  Definitely not a movie that you should get popcorn for.  It was pretty crushing watching all those chickens jammed up together in battery cages and really I can’t imagine how someone could keep eating meat after seeing it.  The movie does a good job of adding a little positivity and and hope, showing some cool sanctuary footage and happy chickens along with the suffering caged ones.

Our next contributor has a similarly awesome and rather depressing message to share about us about a lucky little monkey who got rescued by the good old ALF.  Not the cat eater from space guys, but the Animal Liberation Front.  They used to be all over the news when I was young and I always thought they were awesome!  Our contributor Anna clearly thinks they rock as well and has the following to say about her newish vegan tattoo:

Nothing funny to say about vivisection, yuck

“This is a pretty new tattoo but its on a vegan (me) tattooed by a vegan (ryan mason from scapegoat tattoo) against animal cruelty and vivisection.  I am surprised at how few people (including vegans) are familiar with britches the monkey.  I find his story heart breaking and so far having this tattoo has giving me the opportunity to share it with others….  Below his portrait there’s a quote that reads none so blind as those who will not see.   I figured that summed up my feelings on vivisection and animal cruelty pretty accurately.”

Don't sew on monkeys

Anna also included a link to a little video that tells the tale of Britches:

Britches the unlucky / lucky baby monkey

Who ever decided that they should sew the monkeys face should probably not ever be allowed to be around animals and children.  Also, maybe not sewing materials or staplers. WTF?

Thanks for putting up with my ramblings today everyone, thanks for checking out this tattoo and most importantly thanks for being vegan!

I have been wanting to expand my tattoo coverage for a while now so I started looking around at vegan themed tattoos.  I have been vegan for more about 15 years so i figured i can go ahead and get a vegan tattoo right?  Its cool, all the kids are doing it,  so why not just go and get a lovely tattoo at a local shop.  Well its not quite that easy because a whole lot of tattoo inks out there have animal bits in them.  yuck.

I will be posting here about my adventures and new tattoos as they hit my skin.  I’ll also be finding vegan tattoo artists, vegan inks, vegan tattoos, and awesome vegan people with tattoos.  Anyone that wants to share tattoos or tattoo art,  information about vegan inks,  vegan tattoo shops and vegan tattoo artists please get in touch by hitting the contact link or emailing vegantattoos@gmail.com.
