I love this next one for its simplicity, elegance, and coolness of the owner.

Avid blogger, donkey hugger, and vegan Sarah Downs writes

“I don’t think it counts. Because the ink wasn’t vegan, apparently. But I didn’t know that at the time. Apparently, the package ingredients were vegan (they were!) but the black stuff they use to make the black ink or whatever isn’t vegan? Made from bugs or somesuch? I don’t know. I’m still clueless after seven years of this shit.

…the initials “B.D.” and “W.D.” which stands for Bonnie Donkey and Waylon Donkey, my two favorite animals here at Farm Sanctuary.”

Well at least its not on your ass!!
I think your friends are a couple of asses!

I think we all feel a bit clueless sometimes about whats in what and I don’t think companies really tend to make it clear a lot of times.  Thank goodness for those little vegan symbols they have now! We will definitely be adding some links, posts and articles on vegan inks and where to find them very soon to try and help make it a little less confusing!

Anyways, its a lovely collection of ink Sarah, the dedication to your pals at Farm Sanctuary is super sweet.

Isn’t Sarah the best? I have some photos of her and Bonnie and Waylan and other cuties from when I visited Orland in 116 degree weather. No fucking joke.

That is the tattoo I have been thinking about his whole time. Simple typewriter letters with the period after it. Looks good:)
