Back in May, Moby revealed he was "going away for awhile" after he caused a bit of a stir with passages about dating Natalie Portman in his latest memoir Then It Fell Apart.

Thee months on and Moby has returned to Instagram, and yesterday (17 September) Moby shared a picture of his new neck tattoo by Kat Von D.

The tattoo is on the side of his neck, and reads in bold letters: "Vegan For Life".

Moby wrote alongside the image, "I’ve been a vegan for almost 32 years, so getting this tattoo seemed like a pretty safe bet. Also, working for animal rights and animal liberation is my life’s work. And to state the obvious, it’s a double entendre...thank you Kat Von D."

Animal welfare organisation PETA responded, "We LOVE it! Your dedication to helping animals is far beyond the commitment to this tattoo."

Kat Von D also wrote, "Love you, Moby!"

Moby opened a vegan restaurant in LA in 2015 called Little Pine, and donates all profits to animal charities.
