      For vegans, sticking to an animal-free lifestyle is more than just
      watching what they eat. The most dedicated vegans are also cautious
      about what’s in the products they use, including the ingredients of
      their tattoo ink.

      Because vegans strictly avoid anything created from animals, tattoo
      ink with any animal product in it would be going against vegan
      beliefs.

      Jason Wynn, a UA graduate and employee of Scapegoat Tattoo, an
      all-vegan tattoo parlor in Portland, Ore., said most tattoo ink is
      considered vegan, but there are certain colors that are by-products of
      animals.

      “Black is a tough color because it is often derived either from burnt
      bones or from the resin of shellac bugs,” Wynn said.
