“V” for Vegan – Pure & Simple Sacred Tattoo Design

vegan tattooVegan logos have gone through an evolution, but the message and symbolism remains the same:

“Veganism is pure and beautiful, a growth towards the perfection of compassion in action, victorious, alive and the part of the ultimate peace movement. An idealistic peace not just amongst human beings but peace with other species and our environment.” ~

I was asked to create a personalized “V” for a vegan animal activist who wanted simply to wear his statement of life path choice and compassionate mission in life as a signifying mark on his “Spiritual Skin.”

Nothing fancy. Just a new “V” that felt more aligned with him than “V’s” he’d seen out there and yet still felt to be part of the collective veganism movement. Something stand-alone potent and symbolic in its own unique way.

Use of the “V” symbol has become a signifying symbol for things certified vegan or certifying an organization fostering veganism. It also has come to designate that something involves “no animal testing or ingredients.” And of course, has been adopted by people who choose the veganism lifestyle, philosophy, and beliefs.

The “V campaign” has spread far and wide including at one time being found all over Facebook with vegans adopting the “V” in a circle by their name to signify their life choice, until Facebook took that option away. You now only see a few stragglers who managed to find a way to keep it.

It’s also been a way for consumers to more easily and quickly identify completely vegan, animal-free products – meaning they contain no animal products, were not tested on animals, and they did not involve the use of animal products in their manufacture.

As the use of the “V” spreads, it will also be a way to easily identify companies that share people’s support of veganism. And, the logo definitely also propels veganism into the mainstream of public consciousness more, raising interest in, and awareness of, the vegan lifestyle that people have chosen, as well as makes it easier and more accessible to take part in.

We’ve seen a tremendous increase in the number of people who are making conscious choices based on their own individual reasons, in reflection to shifts in their life, and this has led to more and more people adopting a vegan lifestyle. For many, it is a life commitment choice that people choose and desire to share as a reflection of who they are.

Today’s sacred tattoo design is representative of one person’s unique voice who has chosen to speak for the voiceless.
