  1. Hi again,

    What is the difference between a “black liner” and “black filler” color? (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?

    1. 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 😉

  2. 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?

    1. 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.

  3. 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?

    1. If it’s not dryed out you can still use it for prectice skin. It’s just not safe anymore for human skin 😉
