+ I N K With a Cause +

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 where we use our resources for the betterment of those around us. 

Sustainable Sessions

Firstly, 5% of each complete ceremony session with Sacred Pokes goes to Ink With a Cause, stocking us with eco-safe products for body ornamentation. 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, Seasonal Donation Designs, benefit events, + Outreach Sessions.

Seasonal Design Donations

Another way Ink With a Cause looks ahead to activism, is by donating a percentage of proceeds of select seasonal pre-drawn designs, to higher purposes. Some recipients of these donations include:

  • LifeStraws + portable solar power being directly delivered to those without water or electricity in Puerto Rico
  • The KIND Project (Kids in Need of Defense)
  • WOAR (Women Organized Against Rape) 
  • The Florence Project 
  • Emergency funds, food, + medicine for the Sudan Uprising

...among more to come! Please keep up with the “Predrawn” highlight on our Instagram page or email us requesting previews of the pieces, to see which are available for seasonal IWAC donation. Donation sizes vary, unless otherwise specified, or for a benefit event.

Outreach Sessions

These specified, lower-cost appointments are available for patients who are marginalized, impoverished, or otherwise only able to afford a sliding scale session. We believe this healing should be accessible to those who need it + approach it with an authentic openness, no matter their circumstance. 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.

The service structure we present allows us to branch out, supporting causes or people that need recognition, uplifting + backing. It also provides us the ability to offer a greener, cleaner process than the average body ornamentation business. For us, this healing work is seen as means to spread that love in a butterfly effect across all we come into contact with.
