Veganism is a mindful lifestyle that discourages the use of animal products for any reason, particularly diet. Many people choose this way of life for its sustainability and respect for animals. However, there are so many occasions and products that include animal products, it can make enforcing this lifestyle slightly more difficult. Each event and all of the factors involved, including materials and ingredients, need to be considered before participation or purchase if wanting to uphold vegan principles. Tattooing is one such event.
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. There are vegan friendly inks that can be used but sourcing an artist or shop that uses these products can take some time.
Another factor involved in the tattooing process that will need to be considered if vegan is aftercare. Once your tattoo has been professionally applied with cruelty free ink, you will need to take care of your new tattoo in order to preserve it to its best potential. 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.
