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!”
