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:
Art House Tattoo – use vegan inks and the staff are fantastic
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.
H2Ocean – some products
Tattoo Goo – Just the lotion, not the salve
