ANYONE ELSE TATTOO?

Recommended Posts

Guest oilcanloyd

Well here's my problem. I've been trying to find the blackest black ink I can get my hands on and I haven't found one that realy stays truly black. Any suggestions?

true black is impossible. you view tattoo ink through the pigment of the skin, so the only way you could ever achieve pure black is by tattooing an albino or something. the hue of each persons skin tints any tattoo pigment slightly. plus you may have to hit things a couple times to get it in solid (i don't mean work the skin into hamburger all in one shot, i'm saying hit it, let it heal, black over it again), especially if you're trying to get large areas of solid black. i think the japanese blacks (irezumi brand etc..) come out darkest, but you will never find one that doesn't heal with a slight blue or green tint, it's simply not possible unless you're dealing with some really pale people.

"oh yeah, I understand that their isnt a way to get a pure black once its applied into skin, I was asking for some different brands to test out. thanks for the input I've never tried that brand. I've also heard about a technique for cooking down black, know anything about that?"
