This particular part of my show, is where I review all things vegan, eco-friendly and sustainable in the tattoo community. Today I'm going to be talking about one of, if not THE most important parts of a tattoo, the ink. The ink is the most important part of the tattoo and with so many inks on the market out there, it really just comes down to preference. For me, it's a no brainer.
I want to use inks with the least amount of inorganic pigments inside of it as possible, so the good folks over Raw Pigments sent me a set to try out. However, I will say that this review is completely unbiased. This is my personal opinion, after using and talking to the good folks over at Raw Pigments.
Right off the bat, what I will say about this ink, is the consistency is very good. It mixes very well and it has a good cup-life. Personally I do longer tattoo sessions anywhere from six to twelve hours each sitting. One thing I've noticed about inks with more acrylic in them is that they tend to dry up in the cup a lot faster than inks that are acrylic based.
Another thing I was able to note about Raw Pigments versus some of the others out there, is how smooth they are able to blend. For me personally, I'm an artist who mixes a lot of my colors inside the cup which means I'm taking multiple bottles and mixing them together to make new tones. So for me, I want ink that when the pigment is broken down into a smallest particles, they mix and blend very well. That is something that I definitely get with Raw Tattoo ink is that the consistency of all the inks across all the bottles are almost the same compared to some other companies. When you open up one of other Reds, it may be a lot thinner and then you open a yellow, it's going to be a lot thicker. That's one thing I am happy about because like I said for me personally, I do do a lot of my ink mixing inside of the cup to match the colors of the tattoo that I'm actually working on.
Once again, that's another really good thing about Raw Inks. I found that the colors come out of the bottle pretty true to hue. They do look pretty much the same from the outside of the bottle on the inside of the bottle and the consistency, like I said, is buttery smooth.
Man I've been getting some really good blends with all the pallets that I've set up with just this particular set that they sent me. With that being said, I've been having no troubles mixing these together and getting really good, smooth blends and variations between my colors saturation.
One of my biggest hesitations and faults when I was first getting into seeing organic and vegan pigments, was if they last as long and do they stand as bold as other inks out there hat are produced with the automotive, textile, and plastic industries. I will say, one thing that I have seen with the Raw Ink, is that it is true to color and it heals phenomenal.
I haven't seen any issues with loss of color or dulling of color over the healing process of my tattoo. Keep in mind, I haven't been using Raw Tattoo pigments as long as maybe some of you guys out there, maybe some of you guys have better examples to show, and if so, drop a comment, man let me know what you think.
So, like I said. with tattoo inks, it really just comes down to preference. For me, I personally prefer a tattoo ink with the least amount of inorganic pigments as possible. I want to know that when I go dispose of my ink cup, that the eight the sitting inside of that income is not causing this own adverse effect to the environment.
Right now, I don't think it's any company out there on the market is doing with Raw Pigments is doing.
I love the tones they have. If you go to the website, you'll see they have a lot of different colors to choose from. This set in particular that I'm using, is the traditional set, but they do have a beautiful lineup of colors. Their actual packaging is absolutely gorgeous. I love the brand and like I said, it does come down to preference.
With tattoo ink, there are millions of different ones out there, but would I recommend Raw tattoo pigments? Yes, yes and yes! Especially if you're interested in picking up a pigment that is not only 100% organic, all-natural, and vegan, it is also acrylic free.
That is one of the big things for me and why I'm looking at switching out all of these inks back here for a full set of the Raw Inks.
When you know better, you do better, and now that I know that there are better options out there, then what's left to do is DO BETTER!
Of course, don't just take my word for it, pick up a set today and try them out. Add them to your collection. I recommend you have at least one, if not the whole set. But if you're like me, and you're more than conscious about the things that you put into your body, you're aware of things that you put it back into the earth, then this is no brainer for sure.
Go give Raw Pigments a to try. See if you like them for yourself, and if you do give them a try, please come back to this video and let me know what you think.
