Empire Inks was originally developed in 2012 by Colt Brown in an effort to provide tattoo artists with a perfect system of gray wash ink. As a predominantly black and gray portrait artist, Colt Brown understood the importance of ink consistency and workability, which is why Empire Inks Graywash Series is specially formulated with pigments ground to an e-fine base powder. This helps the ink go into the skin effortlessly, producing the smoothest gray tones possible and minimizing unintentional peppered shading.
Empire Inks are manufactured in the USA in a 100% sterile environment.
They use an EU certified pigment dispenser to weigh, disperse, blend, and color-match all tattoo ink for consistency and accuracy.
Empire Inks are also 100% Vegan.
Black was formulated as a cooler black, contrasting well with warm skin tones, while maintaining a medium viscosity.
Our classic black was formulated to be an all-purpose black that is ideal for packing black with excellent saturation.
This black can be used for lining, packing and shading.
"I love using this as an all-purpose black. It’s great for the artist that prefers to use only one black in their palette. With this black, they can line, shade, and color". -Colt Brown, owner
