Tattoo Ink has been used for thousands of years. Humans across cultures have used ink to create tattoos. Each tattoo being designed for a purpose that would either commemorate life’s milestones, remember loved ones lost, a display of societal position, or even as a symbol of punishment. The methods used to make tattoo pigments were once primitive some would use crushed flowers, muddled dirt and water, or combined a variety of other natural ingredients which were then injected into their bodies.
As the art form of tattooing became more mainstream, the tattoo ink creation process became more fine-tuned. Modern tattoo ink designers were concerned with making products that were socially acceptable. These inks needed to be organic, vegan-friendly, and non-toxic. This would minimize health risks by being sterilized and tested for a broad spectrum of bacteria before being released.
