Empire Inks Greywash Series heals beautifully in cool tones, causing stark contrast between warm skin tones and cooler bluish grays of the inks.
"Since the birth of pre-mixed graywash, there has been the argument of, “Why buy it premixed when you can use the drop method?” The drop method works great for certain styles and application of black and gray tattooing. My technique calls for me to be more deliberate, therefore, I need the consistency that a premixed ink offers. It’s not a matter of which is better in tattooing, rather which is better for each individual artist". -Colt Brown, owner of Empire Inks
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 predominately 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 extra-fine base powder. This helps the ink go into the skin effortlessly, producing the smoothest gray tones possible and minimizing unintentional peppered shading.

"Whenever we zoom in, especially with the iPads, compared to using a paper reference, we tend to zoom in a lot more now. The surrounding values will confuse your eye into making it appear darker or lighter than it actually is. The digital value scale will help you be a lot more accurate and will help you go a lot faster in tattooing. You won't have to guess if you need a light or medium". -Colt Brown, owner
