The vehicles most used are: ethanol, purified water, hamamelis of plant origin, Listerine, propylene glycol and glycerin. The pigments that are put into each ink serve to impart the desired color; some pigments have natural origin and in this case are obtained by treatment of particular minerals, but in the majority of cases are obtained synthetically. The synthesis methods are varied and use wet processes and / or dry and include intermediate stages as dissolutions, more or less complex reactions, precipitation, filtration, washing, desiccation, calcinations etc. For these reasons, it would therefore be necessary that lawmakers regulations about the discipline of tattoo inks requiring that the various constituents were disclosed, also taking into account the fact that these substances are injected into the skin and therefore should be averted all those potentially harmful substances.Tattoosupply.com has the widest range and best selection of tattoo inks and artistic colours for sale within the industry.
