Tattoo Ink Question - Can't post elsewhere yet

Recommended Posts


I'm new to this forum and am looking for advice. Is it rude to ask an artist to use different inks? The heavy metals in many of them will cause a lot of problems with me so I found some that are made without it.

Just tell your artist about your reaction/allergy/whatever to certain inks and ask if s/he could use other pigments instead.  No one likes being told how to do their job, but this sounds like a legitimate request and one that I hope would garner some empathy.  Keep in mind that not all inks/pigments are created equal, and your artist may have a strong preference for something other than what you suggest.
