is getting a tattoo with eternal ink different from any other ink?
yes. eternal ink is non acrylic ink and being an organic pigment it allows the body to heal faster and hold the colour better.

you may be aware that all ink products have become the subject of closer scrutiny over recent times, with some speculation that certain ink products may contain chemicals and substances which are potentially harmful to humans. we continue to closely monitor the guidance and advice on this subject and would never supply any products which contain substances banned in the UK, Europe or U.S.A. we are working closely with our suppliers to ensure that the products we sell are safe to use.

can tattoo ink cause an allergic reaction?
yes, a person can be allergic to any tattoo ink or anything else. eternal ink has the lowest reactions of any tattoo ink. if you are unsure a test patch should be done.

are eternal inks suitable for vegans?
yes eternal ink is 100% vegan safe as we put no animal by-products in any of our colours.
