26.Dec.2009 Total Fawnage
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.
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!
