Vegan tattooshops in Europe
Posted August 7th, 2012 - 7:01 pm by from Gent, Belgium (Permalink)
hi everyone!

since last october i have a (badly done) tattoo which should still be corrected. i am already quite sure with which artist i am going to get it done (not vegan, i would probably bring my own ink), but was thinking it wouldn't hurt to look around a bit for some vegan tattooshops first.

in ghent (belgium) there is toryumon tattoo which is all vegan, but after googl(e?)ing a bit, i came to the conclusion she is the only vegan artist with her own shop in belgium ánd neighbourcountries!

so my question is if there is anyone that knows any other shops in europe that work all vegan, maybe i didn't search good enough? or maybe some vegan tattooartist hidden in a non-vegan shop?

just out of curiosity.

i hope for positive answers, and if not: i will learn how to tattoo and start my own shop. there should be more.

hi, thank you for your answer and the information!

the ones in london all seem like such great artists! couldn't find the ones in germany though.

and unfortunately, all around the world, a lot of people don't know what veganism is yet (just yesterday i had another funny reaction. i quote: 'what? you're vegan? that means you don't even eat plants right? wow, i would totally die.')

There is one in Trondheim called Onkel Henrys. They all use Intenze ink which is vegan. They don't advertise for that but I just asked. My favorite artist there is Rokas Sakys :)

Yeah, this isn't in Europe but I just read this blog as Ive never heard of "vegan" tattoos until I saw your post. Maybe if your in New York you can pop in!

Here are the ones where I got my tattoos:

Rome, Italy:
http://www.cherrytattoo.it
100% vegan products for tattoos, although the only vegan associate is the piercer :)

Sofia, Bulgaria:

He's vegetarian (and straight edge), uses vegan inks (Eternal), helped me buy non-tested aftercare at the shop next door.

The second one has been a lot cheaper than the first, but Bulgarian friends told me he's a bit expensive for their standard.

Cheers,
A.
