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!

Hello vegans and friends, hope you’ve had a lovely time since you’ve last visited. I have been super busy lately and have been real slack about bringing you  more cool vegan tattoos on awesome vegans. 

Our next tattoo comes from Becca who says:

“The number one comment I get when people see my wrist tattoos is ‘What, in case you forget?’…   And yes, in a way they are.  They’re a reminder of the commitment I’ve made to the animals and to myself, lest I ever lose sight of why I’m vegan.”

“I got this first one in Las Vegas in November of 2007 from a vegan tattoo artist at a Vegan Freak meetup, using vegan inks.  I wanted a visible “vegan” tattoo, but I worked in corporate hell so I didn’t want it to be glaringly obvious.  My compromise – got the tattoo on my wrist, but used white ink.  I really like the effect, similar to scarification.”

“I knew almost immediately after getting the first one that I wanted another one on my right wrist, and this spring I finally got the second one.  This one was done by Annie Mess in Austin in April of this year (2009), also using vegan inks.  It’s not entirely finished healing, and will look much like the first one after a few more months.”

This one for me

I have always loved these white ink tattoos for very similar reasons, they are a bit of a shock when you notice them too, an inky secret unconvered.

Anyhow, way to go Becca!  Thanks for your excellent contribution and thanks for being vegan!

Hey all, quick Friday night second post for you.  Awesome vegan Allison writes:

“The tattoo shop is not vegan (nor is my artist), but he does have a great supply of vegan ink. The coloring will be done in 2-3 weeks.”

I'm glad roses are vegan too!

Today’s excellent piece was sent by Marie from the Phillipines who writes:

“I got my first tattoo on September 20 of last year. Been thinking of getting a tattoo and I wanted it vegan-related. I settled for the word “Vegan” in Victorian script. ”

“I got the maya bird tattoo on April 6 of this year. The maya bird used to be my country’s national bird, then it got demoted (now our national bird is a monkey-eating eagle). I got the maya bird tattooed because it symbolizes my love for country, freedom, and animals. The maya bird isn’t really a symbol of simplicity, but that’s precisely why I like it — it’s not as showy as an eagle, it’s just a regular bird that everyone overlooks.”

these wing definitely are for flying

HALP! that bird is stealing my spaghetti!!!!

Beautiful bird and an amazing country.  Thanks a bunch for the lovely addition and thanks especially for being vegan!

Our next vegan tattoo has a very cool feeling to it, with twisting vines and lovely flowers climbing the forearm like a trellis.

be-fairied 5 year vegan Courtney write:

“I got my first tattoo as I was becoming vegetarian and the others have progressed.  Now as I am thinking of more, including a Vegan Asparagus themed one, I have talked to many parlor’s in the Chicago area and most offer to order or use vegan ink, specifically Metamorph Studios.  My original artist at Liquid Courage in Omaha also offered that.

Here’s what I have so far…”

Hey you damned fairy!! Get back here with my flower!!1
