So I came across something interesting yesterday and I thought I would share it. I have 6 tattoos planned and before I start to get them I thought I'd look up whats in the ink of tattoos.

Turns out burn animal bones and other animal products are/can be used in most black inks as well as other colours.
I was blown away when I found this out, and also that they don't tell you.
Guess i'm going to have to ask the shops before i got to them if they use burnt animal in their pigments.
But I figured I'd share this with all of you, who also want/have tattoos.
It's going to be really stupidly hard. This is one of those important but ugg why did i find this finds
yep which isn't easy by the looks of it.
Here is something that happened to me- I have been all raw for just over three years, but struggling to be all raw for about four years prior. It was during the time when I was struggling when I had what I considered to be a detox symptom, but it was very strange for my body. I have tattoos on both of my forearms, not sleeves, though one is in the shape of a bracelet. Sometimes, I would develop welts on the inside of my forearms that were about two inches long, about an inch or two away from each other, varying numbers of them, sometimes 5 or 6. I always assumed it was in reaction to something I ate. They would only last for an hour or two but the only other time I've ever even had a welt was when I took Aleve once. Never detoxed with welts before or since, but have always wondered, as these welts developed inches from my tattoos and the inside of your forearm is a very soft, easy-to-see area, if it was related to my tattoos. On a different note-so, no more tattoos, huh? Well, until the raw tattoo artist makes his way to Memphis, I guess I'll just be sitting it out. Ces't la vie- more money for organic fruit!! :)
maybe it was who knows. alot of people don't know this about tattoos... it's so stupid they hide this
I hope i don't get any
That is weird that ya'll had welts and in the forearm area- maybe it is such a sensitive area that detox symptoms are most easily seen or something. Am pretty sure a 'vegan-ink tattoo artist' search on Google will prove fruitless, no pun intended :) here in Memphis. Will give it a shot, though!
there is a shop in portland or that is a vegan tattoo shop.....there in this cute lil vegan mini mall in se........pretty stoked to be living here sometimes
I hope to find some down in fl when i move there.
I read some where that some parlors will order some vegan ink for you if you call in and request it. I don't know if you pay extra or not, but I'd assume so.
