Its the perfect time of year to turn people on to awesome vegan food for the holidays, and I hope everyone is having a bunch of luck with that and having a good time.  I have been having a great time avoiding work and playing games online for the last couple of days, but I figured I would share a newer submission that I got a couple of days ago. 

Our next contributor Leigh had this lovely work done by vegan artist Danielle Distefano of Only You Tattoo in Atlanta, GA and had the following to say about her darling little dear:

 ”I decided on a deer tattoo while on a road trip with my husband. We were driving to upstate New York to exhibit at a vegetarian festival, and along the way we saw several deer hanging out near the highway. It reminded me of how hunters try to justify killing these beautiful animals because they seem to think it’s their duty to control the deer population in order to avoid situations like deer running out into the road and causing damage to cars, or eating plants in people’s yards. The idea that humans have the right to kill another species simply because they are inconvenient to our sprawling urban and suburban living is just sad to me.

Oh Deer!

Oh Deer!

Danielle at Only You Tattoo created my beautiful little fawn with all vegan inks. I just love it!”

I must say we love it too; the deer, the ornate frame, and little heart are adorable.  What a sweet tribute to a beautiful animal!  I think everyone could stand to think a bit about the animals they pass by every day, if not just to enjoy their company a bit.

Its really great to see that there are so many vegan tattoo artists around!  Thanks a bunch for being vegan and helping other vegans out by using vegan inks and techniques.

Thanks for stopping by everyone!  If we don’t see before then have a happy and safe new year and most importantly, thanks for being vegan!

Its monday.  After a lovely weekend with plenty of good vegan sandwiches, a nice vegan sugar cookie and some embarrasingly nerdy superhero movies I am ready to get back to work, how about you? 

My vegan tattoo savings account is growing a bit every week and is now up to $75.  when it hits $150 I am going to pick a shop and a design and document it here.  Anyone know which is the best vegan friendly shop in Columbus, Ohio?  Give a shout in the comments if you have any ideas!

Our next contribution comes from Angela in Nanaimo BC, just 100 miles north of Humptulips, Washington.  Angela has been vegan for 4 years and vegetarian for 23 years!  Wow, great job, keep up the good work!!

Angela had this to say about her tattoo:

“My tattoo may not be really vegan themed although I am sure I could stretch it by saying Max wouldn’t eat his meaty dinner & goes off to play with the wild things. ”

Wild thing, you make my sock dead.

Max-imum sock and roll

I don’t know if it qualifies as a “vegan tattoo” either, especially considering that Max was chasing his dog around with a fork, but this blog is all about tattoos for, on, and by vegans so it qualifies there for certain!

Angela continues:

“…tattoo done in Victoria @ Sarah & Gerry’s tattoo zoo by Jeremy (not sure if he is a vegan, but he is cool)”

Thanks a bunch for stopping by and above all thanks for being vegan!

Yet another awesome PPKer Emily in Illinois writes:

“I got in at Scapegoat in Portland, OR and it was done by the great Ryan Mason.

I asked for a bunch of asparagus with a purple rubber band, I got some sweet asparagus.  I almost wussed out and just got one little stalk, but I’m so happy Ryan talked some sense into me.”

this one took some real 'gus on her part

 We are happy he did too because it really turned out vivid and delicious looking.  All around a great tribute to asparagus by Ryan who seems like a pretty cool tattoo artist.  Thanks for sending in your work and for being vegan!

… to not think these dueling dog tattoos are adorable.  What really sold me on posting them straight away is the fact that one of these darling muppets are vegan!

That’s the vegan one there and I must say the artist captured her snaggletooth perfectly.  Old girl looks like she’s got a good coat too.  Good job representin’, vegan dog!  Maybe work on that energy a bit more though, ok?

dog lover, vegan, and unabashed crafter Erica says:

“I wanted to submit my latest additions, fresh out of the shop!  I just got these yesterday- they’re not explicitly vegan-themed per se, but they were definitely acquired out of undying love for animals…

…Molly is a pug/boxer mix and Millie is a black lab/pit mix. Both dogs are 8 years old and are rescues.

Hope you enjoy them! The artist is Jason McAffee at Temple Tattoo in Oakland, California.”

Thanks a bunch for sending in your sweet new tattoos Erica, I know a lot of dog friends like myself will love seeing ‘em!
