Washi originated in 8th century Japan from a paper making technique that uses pulps from different shrubs. Washi is versatile, durable and easy to tear. In tattooing you can use it instead of micropore tape and it also makes a great replacement for griptape. Plus it comes in so many sizes and awesome designs!
Who Gives A Crap makes paper towels and toilet paper with a difference! As well as providing eco-conscious paper towels and toilet paper that help fight deforestation and reduce CO2 emissions, WGAC also donate 50% of all profits to help build toilets and improve sanitation in the developing world.
Our eco-tattooing info leaflet is one of the first things that we have made as part of our eco-tattooing toolkit and it is designed to help tattoo artists in their transition towards more sustainable tattooing.
The materials our products are made of have more end-of-life options than other plastics, but that is not taking into account any health and safety regulations regarding tattoo waste. In this guide we look at the various end of life options for the materials we use to make our products. Some of these end-of-life options may not be viable ways of disposing our tattoo waste today, but they do open up new possibilities for our waste in future.
