JAMES SPOONER, owner of Monocle Tattoo, has been tattooing for over ten years. Being a vegan for nearly three decades, he pioneered a vegan tattoo procedure in Los Angeles in order to be consistent with his politics and lifestyle. He is a well-rounded tattooer, proficient in black and grey, dot work, cover-ups, and working with all shades of skin.
WHAT IS A VEGAN TATTOO?
There is more to a tattoo than a machine, needle, and ink. An artist chooses multiple products to use before, during, and after the procedure. Stencil paper, razor choices, soap and skin lubrication, aftercare, and of course ink, are all a matter of CHOICE. Each one of these elements has the potential to contain animal based ingredients or be a product tested on animals. I pick the highest quality products with zero ethical compromise, giving you bright and bold tattoos for a life time.
