Recently it's come to light that the tattoo stencil paper available on the market today is not vegan (it contains lanolin). There's been a lot of discussion about this: some folks feel that being concerned about what's in the paper used in the process is splitting hairs, and that's fine well and good, but that's not how I feel; I'm dedicated to making all aspects of my life cruelty-free where it's in my power to do so, and my profession is no exception. It's not about a marketing ploy; it's about what I think is the right thing to do. It doesn't really matter to me if you as clients care if your tattoo or the process that creates it is vegan; I care. That's why I've done so much research and worked so hard to come up with a vegan alternative stencil paper for those of you that are interested. And by making it available to you, the clients, it opens up the option for you to go to any artist who's work you like, so you aren't just limited to shops or artists claiming to offer vegan tattoos that may not offer the style or caliber of artwork you're interested in, which is, ultimately, what's most important when considering a tattoo. And ultimately, any professional tattoo artist that really cares about tattooing wants you to get the artwork you're interested in getting, whether or not it's from them. Being vegan shouldn't narrow that option for you, and now it doesn't have to, which I think is great news :)
These sheets will be sold individually through my Etsy store; they are hand-trace only (cannot be put through a thermofax machine), and are reusable until there is no more ink left on the paper, meaning you can get a number of tattoo stencils out of each sheet. Quantities are limited as I am only able to make this available in small batches at the moment, but feel free to order as many as you like at one time. I'll be shipping them in weather-resistant packaging that is recommended for long term storage in a safe, dry place so as to protect the integrity and reuseability of your sheet. Hope some of you find these useful and helpful!
