Vegan Tattoo Artists in Adelaide

Tattoos are part of our everyday culture and becoming more and more comfortable with employers. Phew. But what is a vegan tattoo? It is a little-known fact that some tattoo inks are actually made with animal products. Non-vegan varieties may contain bone char, glycerin from animal fat, gelatin from hooves, or shellac from beetles.


As Tim Donnelly writes at The Atlantic, “The ink and processes at your average shop contain a veritable buffet of animal detritus: charred bones of dead animals in the ink, fat from once-living things in the glycerin that serves as a carrying agent, enzymes taken from caged sheep that go into making the care products.”


But don’t let that put you off getting your next ink. We have put together a list of vegan tattoo artists in Adelaide that can make your new piece of art from plant-based materials.
