tattoos for, by, and on vegans

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!

Evolved and High Street Tattoos are highly recommended by my fiance, who’s had a lot of work done at both places (a few years back). Andy Ringo at Evolved, and Giovanni at High Street. Good luck with the piece!

Thanks for the tip Kat! I have heard good things about Evolved but I have never been there personally to get a tattoo. I would totally prefer to find a vegan tattoo artist as well so any leads on that end would be appreciated!

I love the wild thing! It is totally Vegan…at least I think it speaks to the free spirit of all Vegans!

I also have to recommend Evolved. My artist, Alana Robbie, does fantastic 100% vegan tattoos. You can check out her work on the Evolved website or on her myspace at I promise, you won’t be disappointed!

Hi. Im Alana Robbie the artist mentioned above by Brittany. I am vegan myself, and I do completely vegan tattoos, including some things in the process that are normally overlooked like ointment and soap (as for ink I use classic color system, you can check them out online, they even state on their bottles that they are vegan). Feel free to contact me directly at and I can walk you through our procedure and fully explain everything I do vegan-wise to you. Also feel free to stop in at Evolved’s 1880 N high street studio when Im working (wed-sat 2-11). Some of my portfolio can also be viewed in the tattoo artists section at or my myspace at

Yeah – Victoria, BC…and I am not sure if Jerry is vegan but his wife, Sarah Kramer, is a huge vegan and she is a local celebrity here -check out her website

I’m going for my vegan tat on Sept 15th with Jerry. This shop, Tattoo Zoo, may be the only one in Victoria that carries vegan ink.
