Vegan Tattoo – level 1

16-05-2018 15:00

Two sisters from Brussels travel to France. They get tattoos there. They go to a vegan tattoo parlour. Vegan tattoo parlours only use ink from vegetables. They cannot use beeswax, or animal gelatine.

The sisters realise that there are no vegan tattoo parlours in Brussels. They start one. They call it ‘Because’.

Difficult words: vegan (when you do not eat or use anything made from or made by animals), tattoo parlour (a shop where you can get a tattoo), gelatine (a material which is made from animal pieces), realise (see, think and make a plan).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
