Vegan Tattoos and Aftercare

Vegan Tattoos and aftercare

Finding somewhere that does vegan tattoos can be a difficult, its getting better now as a lot of studios stock vegan equipment and a lot of their staff are vegan too

So whats the problem? What makes tattoos not vegan? Some of the inks can have non vegan products in such as gelatin, the transfer paper can be made from lanolin, the razors used to shave skin might not be vegan, the after products are often not vegan too.

The best option about finding out if a tattoo parlour does vegan tattoos is to contact them yourself, however we’ll be putting together a list of places that do here:

Birmingham

Karma Collective 

House of Thieves

Brighton

Dead Slow

Gun and Pedal Tattoo Studio

Inka  –  the studio is owned by a vegan and comes with a personal recommendation

Leicester

Sasha Wilkinson

Liverpool

Design4life

The Painted Ladies

London

Fifth Demension

Manchester

Manchester Ink

Rain City – some artists use vegan inks

Sacred Art – Vegan On Request

Ormskirk

Art House Tattoo – use vegan inks and the staff are fantastic

 

Vegan Aftercare

Lots of tattoo studios recommend using bepanthen which isn’t vegan, however there are lots of vegan options available, these will often be available from studios but if not can be bought online before your tattoo is done

After Inked

El Gato Negro

Hustle Butter

H2Ocean – some products

Tattoo Goo – Just the lotion, not the salve

Tattoomed

La Riche Tatt Splatt

Thanks to Chris Walsh for putting this post together for us.
