At Liquid Amber Tattoo we take pride in offering a vegan friendly tattoo experience from start to finish. We've had many inquiries on vegan tattoos over the last few months and have done research and made some changes at our shop to accommodate to these requests. When arriving for your tattoo appointment, remind us of your interest in vegan friendly tattooing and we can confirm that the artist will use all vegan products.
Though most of our tattooing equipment is vegan there remains some non-vegan products in our shop like Vaseline, but we have taken steps to be able to offer a fully vegan tattoo process including switching over our stencil paper to vegan transfer paper and using Hustle Butter instead of Vaseline (when requested).
Now for the permanent stuff: Most inks that our artists use is from "Eternal Ink". Their ink products are water-based pigments made using organic, vegan-friendly and non-toxic ingredients. We also use “Fusion Ink”, which is made with organic pigment that is completely vegan safe. The other inks that we use are “Intense” & “Starbrite” which are listed as vegan on numerous websites, however, it’s always important to inquire directly with the company on specific colours as new ink is constantly being developed.
After Care: Caring for your tattoo is the most important step to retaining a beautiful and bright tattoo. At Liquid Amber Tattoo, we offer a ‘Simple Kit’ which includes a vegan moisturizer and cleanser for all your aftercare steps. We also offer small packets of Hustle Butter as another option. Learn more about the aftercare steps here.
Our Cleanser: SimpleCleanse is a gentle vegan and organic moisturizing cleanser. Formulated with mild vegetable based cleansers, including skin enhancing botanical extracts, hemp oil and aloe. This cleaner is free of sodium lauryl sulphate, sodium laureth sulphate and parabens.
Our Moisturizer: SimpleShield is a vegan, organic moisturizer formulated with a vegetable-based derivative that boosts the production of the water holding molecules present in the dermis. It blocks the penetration of allergens and toxins and acts as a natural antioxidant while boosting the skin's ability to naturally regenerate, nourish, hydrate, and protect itself.
Additionally, SimpleShield and SimpleCleanse use fair-trade ingredients sourced within North America. Both of these aftercare products are sold in a kit for $15 at our shop. You can also purchase them individuality for $8 each or buy Hustle Butter packets at $3.50 each.
