Celebrating 1 year vegan
my dog paw tattoo
I got this last night. It was done by Bucky Crispin at Gold Rush Tattoo in Costa Mesa.
Did this tattoo for a fellow animal lover to celebrate her rescue animals! I am a vegan tattoo artist and have a 100% vegan tattoo process - all the tattoos I make are vegan tattoos! <3
My “vegan” stomach tattoo, done in 2010.
This comes from vegan tattoo artist extraordinaire, Brian from Scapegoat Tattoo in Portland, Oregon. Brian had the following excellent story about a tattoo that he did:
“A fine vegan gentleman by the name of James Taylor (yep, James Taylor got tattooed by Brian Wilson…) called me from sunny California and wanted a Sea Shepherd tattoo. He said that were pretty much bad asses and he wanted to show his thanks for what they were doing in a tattoo. And the rest was left up to me. I came up with this… A skully embodiment of Poseidon meets Sea Shepherd flag destroying the Yushin Maru whaling “research” ship!
"Veganism is justice, compassion and a weapon against cruelty, we could in essence bring about animal liberation and stamp out institutionalised animal cruelty from our homes simply by boycotting products and foods that are of cruelty. It is not human instinct or necessity which keeps humans eating meat. When was the last time any of us had to hunt to survive?"
