Koneko Studio: Starting a Movement with Vegan Tattoos

“We hope to start a movement.” These are the words of Linda Bishop, the founder of “Koneko Studio”, a vegan tattoo studio in Dallas. By not using animal products, she wants to inspire other tattoo artists, with a focus on the ink used for the tattoos. Whilst some inks are vegan-friendly, there are ink brands that use animal products and test on animals. Ointments and other objects used in tattooing are not always animal-free. Bishop’s studio, which also includes microblading and piercing specialists, ensures that only vegan and animal-free products are used in order to simplify the process for interested parties.
