Classic 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
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
