I am a chemist, new to tattoo ink, but I have been applying my cosmetic ingredients to ink with some excellent results. My company was approached by some ink manufactures about 2 years ago, that were having some issues with regulatory bodies in the US and the EU regarding some of the ingredients common to tattoo ink.
We successfully replaced some of the ingredients of concern with more natural and ore gentle chemistries. Since my introduction to this industry, I have been fascinated with the culture and creativity.
So, I am here to learn more about the industry, the community, and to answer any questions about the chemistry of tattoo ink.
