Choosing The Right Tattoo Ink As An Artist

<!-- @page { margin: 2cm } P { margin-bottom: 0.21cm } A:link { so-language: zxx } -->

As the practice of tattooing developed and more and more colors were introduced, the old days of artists mixing in the back rooms of their shops have ended. The time commitment, safety risks, and know-how have become too much for individual artists to handle this task.


 


Too many artists have made the mistake of trying to make their own tattoo ink only to find out that they weren't suited for the task. A tattoo artist should focus on mastering their craft and expanding their skills using tattoo ink for things like outlining, color shading, black and gray shading, and developing their overall tattoo style and building their clientele of customers.


 


This isn't to say that tattoo artists shouldn't be familiar with the fundamental concepts of tattoo ink color and how to mix colors. Mixing colors is much different than making your own ink from scratch. You can purchase pre-mixed colors from tattoo ink manufacturers like INTENZE products who offer products like Snow White Mixing. This is a white tattoo ink color that artists can use to mix and lighten other tattoo inks they purchase. This allows artists to create their own custom shades, which will provide custom tattoos for their clients without having to worry about making their own tattoo ink.


 


Tattoo artists need to understand the concept of the color wheel in relation to their tattoo ink. Using contrast is one of the best ways artists can make their tattoo ink colors POP in the skin. Contrast is the use of complementary colors that are opposite each other on a color wheel. When you use tattoo ink colors like orange and blue, which are complimentary on the tattoo ink color wheel, you'll be creating tattoos where the color contrast is unmistakable.


 


When you apply your time and effort as a tattoo artist to mastering your craft and understanding the fundamentals of color and using the correct tattoo inks for different style tattoos you will improve your skills and profit drastically. This combined with building the right network of clients will bring your experience and earnings to the next level. Make a small investment in a large color set of tattoo ink and you'll be on your way to the status of master tattoo artist.
