Hey all welcome to another fantastic post on the vegan tattoos blog.

Our next post is sweet, coming from vegan tattoo artist extraordinaire, Brian from Scapegoat Tattoo in Portland, Oregon.  Brian had the following excellent story about a tattoo that he did:

“A fine vegan gentleman by the name of James Taylor (yep, James Taylor got tattooed by Brian Wilson…) called me from sunny California and wanted a Sea Shepherd tattoo.  He said that were pretty much bad asses and he wanted to show his thanks for what they were doing in a tattoo.  And the rest was left up to me.  I came up with this…  A skully embodiment of Poseidon meets Sea Shepherd flag destroying the Yushin Maru whaling “research” ship!

Sea Shepherd says "Research THIS"

All I can say is wow, that’s a pretty heavy tattoo!  Way to throw the middle finger up to whaling!

I think I will let Brian sum it up for us:

“I’ll try and send more in the future.  Thanks for making this site!  Thank you everyone who’s gotten or is getting tattooed!  And as they say here, Thanks for being vegan!”

When I first saw the picture from this next submission I must admit it made me laugh.  I mean a  hunter getting shot in the rump by a rabbit is funny enough, but a rabbit with glasses?  Hilarious!

Our vegan friend and rabbit lover Sandy writes:

“Here’s a picture of a tattoo I got in December.  It’s from an old German book called Struwwelpeter.  It’s from a story about a hunter who falls asleep and wakes up to find that the rabbit he was hunting has taken his gun and glasses and chases him away.”

Shoot him in the what, what?

Shoot him in the what, what?

“We had the English version of the book growing up and I always liked this story, so I finally got a tattoo of it.  That text for this image on the original German version roughly translates to:

The rabbit has the glasses now,
That are sitting on his nose;
And he wants to shoot the rifle,
but the hunter is very afraid.
He runs and leaps and yells:
“Help, people, help, people!”

Excellent tattoo Sandy, and a good story as well.  Thanks a bunch for sharing it with us and above all thanks for being vegan!
