Sacred Pokes aims to be sustainably supportive as possible, for both our patients + the products which support this practice. Contributing in a variety of ways, the goal is to spread as all-encompassing a change as possible. Wholeheartedly, we believe that conscious body ornamentation can create an incredibly impactful evolution for our world.
Our project, Ink With a Cause, has multiple avenues of benefit.
Firstly, a portion of higher-scale sessions with Sacred Pokes goes to Ink With a Cause, stocking us with eco-safe products for body art application. This process usually produces unnecessary amounts of unhealthy waste, polluting the environment + engaging with systems that destroy our Earth. Ink With a Cause sees to it that otherwise environmentally harmful supplies, instead derive from sustainable sources.
Examples of our choices for providers are those who: can supply us with paperless or recycled disposable towels, disposable nitrile gloves that are biodegradable to be safer for landfills, carbon offset* their shipments, send monetary support of their revenue to communities in need, etc.
Sustainable session IWAC percentages apply only to complete ceremony appointments; this does not include trades, Donation Designs, benefit events, + Scholarships/Outreach Sessions.
* (counteracting harmful emissions by funding pollution reduction projects)
Another way Ink With a Cause looks ahead to activism, is by donating a percentage of proceeds of select seasonal pre-drawn designs, to advocacy purposes.
Some recipients of these donations include:
...among more to come! Please email to see why pieces are available for seasonal IWAC donation. Donation sizes vary for each initiative + will be specified for the particular session.
These specified, lower-cost appointments are available for sliding scale accommodation, or a partial scholarship. Please email with the subject line stating “OUTREACH SESSION” to inquire if this applies to you; please be patient as there may be a waitlist.
Eligibility for Outreach Sessions is open for:
• Those whose bloodline is part of the diaspora.
• Abuse survivors, or disabled folks.
• Full time artists, caretakers, activists, & organizers.
• People owed societal reparations due to discrimination, or who have been impoverished.
• Those who are part of the Gender & Sexual Minorities (LGBTQx) communities.
Please e-mail for further details if you are unsure of your eligibility, we would be happy to discuss with you more.
Benefit days often offer Outreach Sessions for pre-drawn designs and piercings, so stay tuned for events!
