Black and grey color v Black and grey?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I recently had a consultation with my tattoo artist, I referenced one of his tattoos that he did on another client and he told me that he used black and grey color (not regular black and grey).

This was my first time hearing of such a thing as black and grey color and I wanted to know if any of you have experience with it?

I'm concerned with how black and grey color heals, compared to just regular black and grey.

I have attached the reference photo of the tattoo that my artist did in black and grey color.

 

Thank you in advance for any input/advice!

I've never heard it that way - but I'm assuming that instead of using watered down black to make variations of grey that he's using specifically formulated grey ink(s).(?). 

That picture looks quite nice for the style.

The artist that did my half sleeve Asian tiger used grey ink. It does have a different look compared to thinned black. Artists at another shop noticed right away and asked about it. To me it looks more opaque than dilute black.
