Vegan Tattoo Inks and Treatments List
This is a list of all vegan tattoo ink and treatment brands I could find, I will add to this list if I find out about more companies that are or went vegan.
The great thing about the tattoo inks list, is that these seem to be prominent brands in the tattoo world, so they are widely used by tattoo artists. Some tattoo artists might not even know that the ink they use is vegan. Try to ask what brand of ink they use so you can determine if it’s vegan or not. I’m also not a tattoo artists, but am just highly interested in tattoo art and I happen to be vegan so… I thought it would be handy to have more information about inks/aftercare :)
*Feedback from butt-explosion
These companies have confirmed that their inks are vegan and the glycerin used is plant based (colophony).

I Max Tattoo Inks are vegan
I Max brands includes: Makkuro Sumi Blacks, Makkuro Sumi Colors, Azayaka Live Tattoo Colors, Universal Blacks, Cobra Inks, Flashing Colors, Glam Colors, Pure Colors.
Another brand that is much used is MOMS Nuclear / Millennium inks, these are NOT vegan, contain animal derived glycerin (I asked the company through email).
Some tattoo artists mix their own inks, always ask if the glycerin they use is plant based! And watch out for India Ink in black inks as it consists of burned animal bones.
If you know more about these inks or any other inks that are vegan please message me.
Tattoo Aftercare (Balms, ointments, lotions)
Most tattoo shops will provide you with “Green Soap” (contains plant-based (vegan!) glycerin) or A&D ointment (contains lanolin) which is not vegan, so watch out for that. A good alternative to A&D ointment is Lush’s Ultra Balm (do not use Bacitracin Zinc ointment -read last comment). And if you don’t want Green Soap Dr. Bronners Lavender Soap is a good 2nd option. When at home just use a vegan friendly anti-bacterial soap and you should be fine and when you’re done washing use a fragrance free lotion on it. Check tattoo balms for lanolin.
