Vegan tattoos have been a hugely popular trend in the last few years. Veganism is now a common way of life for many people. It’s only natural that they would change other aspects of their lives to remain true to their beliefs. Vegan tattoos are a way to ensure that animals are not subjected to cruelty in your daily life.
There are many vegan tattoo artists available online. You just need to choose the one that suits your needs.
Vegan tattoos, as the name implies, don’t use animal products in tattooing. Traditional tattoo ink contains animal elements such as glycerin. Glycerin is mainly used as a stabilizer but it is also an animal fat. You also have bone char which is found in certain black inks as pigmentation.
There are many aftercare products that can be used to help with tattooing. Traditional tattoo shops use stencil papers made of lanolin, which is derived from sheep. The razor strips may contain glycerin, so even after-care products aren’t vegan.
Vegan tattoo shops have the exact same materials and processes as traditional tattoo shops. However, none of them will use products that directly cause animal suffering. All of the compounds are made from plant-based ingredients: ink, the equipment used in tattoo studios (from stencils to chairs) as well as the after-care products like soap and moisturizers.
Ink vegan is a controversial choice. Vegan ink can be superior to traditional ink and help you heal quicker. Science does not support these claims. Vegan inks are safer than regular tattoos and won’t cause any skin damage. They are free of carcinogenic chemicals and other harmful substances. We can’t say that they are any safer than regular ink, at least not right now.
Vegan tattoos may not be healthier but they are also cruelty-free. This is what most clients who visit these parlors want.
