In addition to the many billions of people we share the world with, we also share the space with just as many animals and natural living things. Unfortunately, much of human consumption and habits are not exactly eco-friendly. “Going green”, veganism and other more naturally centered lifestyles can help to protect the environment to ensure its natural resources are sustained for current and future generations.
When thoughtfully considered, there are so many details in our lives that have an effect on our habitat. The ingredients in the products we use, the packaging it is contained in, the foods we eat. Using less animal products and byproducts, plastics and chemicals can help to restore the integrity of our ecosystem, if only in a small way.
Tattooing is actually such a process to consider especially if vegan. Ink is the only ingredient used in the tattooing process and most of the time, it is safe to say that the ink being used is not vegan, unless stipulated. Most tattoo ink can contain bone char, gelatin from hooves or shellac from beetles.
Another factor involved in the tattooing process that will need to be considered is aftercare. Aftercare is crucial to the process because it helps to hydrate the area, which encourages the wound to heal. If proper aftercare measures are not taken, it can ruin the time and money spent getting the tattoo. H2Ocean’s Blue Green Foam Soap is a vegan friendly wash that moisturizes to ensure a better tattoo healing experience.
Once your tattoo has completely healed, one of the best practices you can do to keep it vibrant and clear is to wear sunscreen. The sun is a worthy opponent of tattoos, causing them to fade or become muddied after many years. Using sunscreen daily or when outdoors for extended periods minimally, can help to reduce this effect and also protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun.
