(Aside from the claim how “black” it will stay on the skin). Is there any difference, or can I use both colors for both types of tattoo? Reply Ann Gilberg December 26, 2020 at 9:38 pm Hey Stelle 🙂 I personally think that it is mostly a way to sell more different types of ink. I use only one type of black ink for everything I do. (At the moment I use Eternal Maxx Black, its a Lining Black) In my experience lining blacks have been the best for all handpoke techniques so far. And I don’t have that much bottles standing around in the studio 😉 If anything there might be a difference of the consistency I think but that would, if anything, only have an impact on tattooing with machine. Not handpoke 😉 Reply Becca December 24, 2020 at 4:17 am Sorry I got a bit confused when you were talking about Dynamic ink, couldn’t figure out if you were saying if it is good or bad? Reply Ann Gilberg December 26, 2020 at 9:30 pm It is bad or at least it has a bad reputation. There is a lot of reports of bad reactions to the ink. I personally choose not to use it. Reply Moniek January 6, 2021 at 4:03 pm Is it still possible to use ink that has expired for practicing on fake skin? Does the expiration date just mean it is no longer safe to use in on people or does also the structure and the use of the ink change for practicing? Reply Ann Gilberg January 6, 2021 at 5:33 pm If it’s not dryed out you can still use it for prectice skin. It’s just not safe anymore for human skin 😉 Reply Lucy January 13, 2021 at 12:26 am Hi! How do you store your inks? Do they need to be kept chilled or is room temperature okay? Reply Ann Gilberg January 14, 2021 at 11:00 am Hey Lucy 🙂 room teperature is totally fine <3 Reply Eli February 10, 2021 at 3:35 am Hi! How can I make an allergy test to see if my client is allergic to the ink? Reply Ann Gilberg February 13, 2021 at 1:09 pm Hey Eli 🙂 You let the client coose a not so visible spot on their body and make small dots with the colors you are considering to use and then see how they heal 😉 Reply Paulina April 9, 2021 at 9:03 am Hey 🙂 I was wondering whether it’s possible to mix inks together to create a new colour. I’ve had a set of basic colours but if I’d like to let’s say have a pink or purple, would it be possible to mix red and white or is that something you just don’t do? Reply Ann Gilberg April 9, 2021 at 9:27 am Hey Paulina 🙂 Yes, you can mix all colors with each other as you wish. There is absolutely no problem. I do this a lot <3 Have a lovely day, Ann Reply Luna July 11, 2021 at 10:54 am Hello, thank you so much for this course! I was wondering: when you tattoo on human skin, do you have to dilute the ink a little or do you use pure ink? If so, are there differences depending on skin color? Thanks in advance! <3 Reply Ann Gilberg August 9, 2021 at 12:54 pm Hey 🙂 I always use pure ink. Exept if you want to do shadings. They I would dillute the ink depending on how light you want the shadow to be. I hope this helps <3 Reply Juan esteban August 11, 2021 at 6:14 pm En qué cantidades es viable diluir la tinta y con que liquido me recomiendas diluir la tinta? Reply Ann Gilberg August 17, 2021 at 12:22 pm Hey Juan, I am sorry but I do not speak this language 🙁 Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
