When global superstar Miley Cyrus recently showed off her vegan tattoo, the internet went crazy.

The outspoken celebrity often advocates for the vegan lifestyle, and her inking was another way to show her lifelong commitment to plant-based living.

The celeb isn’t the only person to have immortalised her beliefs onto her skin though – here we round up our favorite vegan-inspired designs.

1. ‘Mud not blood’

This tattoo, by artist Emily Breadner, is based on an original design created for Teen VGN by Lucy Holland of Moocylu’s Designs.

It uses bright color, as well as inventive language, to make a bold statement.

2. ‘Friends not food’

Leeds-based artist Chloe O’Malley created this piece, which celebrates the animal kingdom as friends, and not food. 

The concept is inspiring to many tattoo collectors who wear variations of the design on their skin.
