I have to admit I love vegans the most out of all people.  That means you!  But seriously if you live in a big city anymore its just amazing and so easy to be a vegan.  Its not like you have to order the sad wilty salad or worry about explaining your dietary restrictions to a waitron.  People just know what vegans are now and if you asked them and they could bring themselves to admit it, they would tell you how jealous they are of us!

I just got back from visiting my very awesome-but-not-vegan mom and family in Washington D.C. and we had some of the most incredible vegan adventures.  From Vegetate to Sticky Fingers Bakery or even a bunch of vegan options at Asylum, for the first time ever they were all excited about me dragging them around to places I could eat and the options were truly amazing.  This is not a vegan food blog or anything so I am not going to go on and on but I have to admit I am a bit sad to be back here in Columbus with our very limited choice of  strictly vegetarian and vegan restarants.   Anyways, you D.C. metro vegans are so lucky I am not even going to thank you for being vegan any more… jk you guys are awesome too, thanks!

Our next excellent vegan contributor Dag comes from Bethesda, Maryland; right there in the D.C. area.  Dag writes:

“The tattoo is of Huginn and Muninn, Odin’s two ravens. I’ve always loved watching ravens and crows, and can’t understand why such intelligent  birds are hated and killed for being “pests”.”

 A lovely and very punk depiction of some beautiful animals.  Dag’s first tattoo was just as cool:

Dag got the crows inked at Bethesda Tattoo in Bethesda, MD by Steve Labofish.  Dag also mentioned that Steve and the shop were very knowledgeable about vegan inks and tattooing so this might be a great place to go if you are looking for some work and live in that area.

Anyways that all we have for this installment fo the Vegan Tattoos blog.  Be sure to check back next week when we showcase another awesome vegans tattoo.  Thanks for stopping by and most importantly thanks for being vegan!

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!

Hey all,

You may not already know this but I absolutely adore birds.  I often spend 30 minutes a day watching the hijinks of local grackles, goldfinches, robins and turkey vultures.  So it is with happiness that I post our first vegan bird tattoo.

This submission comes from Jenny in Chicago who writes:

“I’m attaching a pic of my vegan tattoo. I came up with the idea of the tat myself. I got it last year in Detroit by a friend – Tom O. of Kustom Kulture Tattoos.”

I guess veganism is for the birds?

Jenny has been vegan 5 years now and vegetarian 8 before that.  Way to go.
