Choosing Tattoo Inks

Tattoo inks are the substance that a tattoo machine places under your skin that leaves you with a permanent mark. Although its commonly called ink — it’s actually pigment which generally contain metal salts or even plastics, suspended in a carrier solution which keeps the pigments evenly mixed and easily applicable.

Some tattoo artists mix their own ink, although most buy it pre-mixed. A typical “home made” carrier solution might be a mix of a small bottle full of vodka or Listerine, etc. with a little glycerin and propylene glycol (which if improperly used, can cause the ink to separate making an uneven mixture and ruining your work) mixed into a slurry with the dry pigments.

Other common carrier components both in home made and some commercial tattoo inks include toxic substances such as anti-freeze, formaldehyde, gluteraldehyde which can cause complications and reactions to your skin. That’s why it’s always a good idea to stick to trusted tattoo inks which are proven and recommended by most professional tattoo artists around the world.36 set Skin Candy Tattoo Ink
