Among hundreds nominated across the globe, Oregon-based small business wins 2022 Global Vegan Award for all-natural skincare brand

EUGENE, November 30, 2022– Local and female-owned small business, Ink Defense Tattoo, was recently named among the winners in the 2022 Global Vegan Awards by LuxLife Magazine, based in the United Kingdom.  Following the announcement, Kaven Cooper, the Global Vegan Awards Coordinator, took a moment to say: “Introducing and celebrating these leading businesses on the scene has been a huge pleasure. Congratulations on your wins, and we wish you all the best as you continue to produce the best vegan products and opportunities for everyone to enjoy.”

Ink Defense Tattoo founder, Elaine Pandolfi, stated “We are thrilled with this award!  To be honored as the Best All-Natural Tattoo Skincare in the US by the magazine's Global Vegan Awards is a huge boost and acknowledgement of the hard work and dedication we have put into our products and this company.” The Global Vegan Awards are  distinguished because they are based on industry innovation, excellence, client feedback and experience as well as overall performance.

Developed to nourish and protect tattoos using all-natural ingredients, the Ink Defense brand offers essentials in tattoo skincare and continues to grow with new products.  We recently added the ‘naked’ product line, which was driven by customer feedback. “We listen; our customers and professional tattoo artists are the reason we thrive. Their input helps us grow and become a better business and partner in the industry.” said Pandolfi. 

Ink Defense products have been featured at the 2022 Academy Awards pre-show events and a variety of tattoo industry functions including Villain Arts Tattoo Festivals across the US, the first annual Huntsvegas Tattoo Invitational in Alabama, the long running Portland Tattoo Expo and other regional tattoo events.
