They do not soften, leak or tip like many other environmentally friendly options and contain zero harmful fossil fuels such as crude oil, unlike traditional plastic ink caps. 

By selecting kraft-boxed barriers you are helping to reduce land-fill, wastage and environmental costs associated with un-necessary product packaging.

    Tattoo pigment consists of two parts; the pigment and the carrier. The composition of tattoo pigment varies from brand to brand. Different ink companies use different dispersion methods and different formulas. We believe less filler the better, but that’s up to the artists preference.

    Shaking your ink.

    Trust us, a fully blended ink is much easier to use and will give you the correct and desired effect. If the ink is allowed to separate and solidify on the bottom of the bottle, you don’t actually get the formulated amount of pigment dispersion. This can reduce the ink’s effective saturation and opacity. When the sediment at the bottom hardens, it can be a nightmare to mix properly, then colour inconsistencies can begin to occur. To ensure your ink has been shaken fully to prevent this; compare the bottom of the bottle to the top, to ensure all pigment has been disbursed correctly. If you see a marbled effect or streaks of colour, keep on shaking.

    Another way to keep your inks unspoiled and sediment free is to keep smaller bottles around, especially if it’s a colour you don’t use often. Take time and think how often a pigment gets used before you decide how much to order. Your ink is less likely to have a lot of settling if it’s not around for long. We’re a fan of small bottles. They’re easier to store, cost less, take up less space, are easy for the artist to travel with and it encourages an artist to keep their ink supply fresh and health board compliant. 

    Remember:

    Shake your inks often to prevent separation.

    Wear gloves when handling open ink bottles.

    Wipe down bottles after use to prevent cross contamination.

    Ensure lid is tightened snugly or clicked into place after use.

    Do not leave ink bottles on work you space during tattoo procedure.

    Store below 30 degrees and above freezing.

    Do not store in direct sunlight.

    Use within 12 months of opening. 

    Nitty Gritty

    We do our best to provide high quality images of each ink, but every device has its own resolution, so please note colours may vary from device to device. Its why we opened our retail locations.

    Due to the uncertainty of ink once it leaves our stores, all ink sales are final.
