To quote (with some corrections/changes) a vegan tattooist -
Tattoo inks are made of two (or more) parts - pigments, and the vehicle to carry them. Most pigments are made of metals, plant derivatives or charcoal (from bone). The vehicle is made from ethyl alcohol, purified water, witch hazel, listerine, propylene glycol and glycerine.
A vegan ink is made from vegetable sources, but the non-vegan one is typically made from animal fats.
There are some other factors in a vegan tattoo, such as using Dr. Broners soap instead of green soap (which has animal fat) and using disposable razors with no "mosterizing strip" (with animal fat).
