Everything you need to know about getting inked the vegan way.

We know what a mine-field searching for vegan-friendly tattoo parlours can be. So, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite vegan tattoo artists and studios across the UK, so you can just focus on choosing the right design. 

Here’s a quick guide to some of the best creative, plant-based tattoo artists and studios. From stick and poke styles in Leeds to abstract and watercolour designs in Glasgow, we’ve got you covered. 

East Anglia

Let’s start our inky journey in the most easterly region of the UK, where you’re never too far from the coast or endless patchwork field walks. 


For fresh and streetwise designs in keeping with Norwich’s effortlessly cool vibe, Carver Tattoo is the city’s resident vegan-friendly tattoo artist – get lost in their Instagram page for bold inspiration

You don’t have to worry about a thing here, everything used from inks and stencil paper to soaps, sprays, moisturisers and aftercare, are all entirely vegan-friendly and plant-based. 

Staying in Shoreditch, we’re also big fans of Jezz Ink’s work at Parlour Tattoo. He offers exquisite fine line, geometric and spiritualist tattoos that we’re more than a little bit obsessed with.
