Gallery: 25 weird and wonderful vegan tattoos


Dedicated vegans have shared inspiring tattoos which spread the message of compassion towards animals on social media.

The collection began after @soul_eubanks posted on Twitter as he contemplated which vegan tattoo to get for himself, and asked followers for advice.

The activist posted: “I’m thinking of getting a vegan tattoo that says “Until Every Cage Is Empty” please share your ideas of good vegan tattoos and if you have a vegan tattoo feel free to drop a pic of it in the comments.”

Floods of ideas and inspiration immediately flooded in.

Vegan influencer @herbivore_club kicked things off with a tribute to a plant-based diet – and the activist’s Twitter handle.

This stunning tribute to the beauty of cows was shared by vegan @khameleonmom.

Next up was photographer @vege_mommy with a minimal sign for compassion.

On the flip side, @Angstzustand79 went for a more intense look with the message: ‘meat is murder’.

Animal rights activist @AhForFoxSake went for the minimalist ‘269’ – a reference to Calf 269 who was saved from slaughter and inspired the formation of an animal rights group.

And @iamgiacomelli featured the trademark leaf in a tattoo which expresses vegan, love and freedom.
