2. 'Place the tattoo according to who the message is to' My birds are tattoed for others to see as I am already practising freedom of the animal kingdom. I also liked the idea of the red ink looking like it is made from my blood. Red because humans make innocent animals bleed and I want to stop this! And less importantly, red is my favourite colour (especially with gold) so would match my outfits!
3. Care - there was no pain at all, it is just an uncomfortable buzzing, maybe it would hurt more across the bone of the wrist or on the foot? I bought DREAM CREAM by Lush, which is suitable for sensitive skin and cruelty-free! Even the packaging is recycled.
- Parrots to symbolise saving the rainforest / environment, one of the most important things to me. Nature. Freedom and liberty. The animal kingdom. Art - very colourful, I am a painter at heart! I think my red birds are quite unique.
6. Vegan Ink! Do check that the black ink if animal-product free. I also traveled to London from Oxford as I wanted to be tattooed by a vegan :) Some people get the word 'VEGAN' or a V with the leaf tag on the left 'branch', so that it is advertised without uttering a word! To me vegan is just a moral baseline - of not killing animals and damaging the environment - What is the next step called? Eco vegan? animal advocate? ! We are 1% of the country so we stand out from the crowd and all attempts to spread awareness help animals.
Really, what is to lose? It is not just the straight edge vegans (xVx) and punks who get tattoos! Wrist tattoos are ideal for retaining a corporate image as you can wear a bracelet or - they are minimal and pretty.
