Sterile water, as of July 1st the use of sterile water is a legal requirement for use in wash bottles and ink washes in Alberta.  

Don't forget that these bottles are NOT recyclable, as once used will be a biohazard. 

Our thanks goes out to the well known tattooers in the province that have pushed tirelessly for almost a decade to ensure this cleanliness standard was passed.

Don't forget to stock up on your single use plastic syringes to inject soap directly into the bottled water to ensure sterility, also, although those won't technically be a biohazard, they are also not recyclable. 

Thanks guys for pushing our industry forward!

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.
