IMPORTANT

WE DO NOT STERILIZE OUR COLOURS WITH IONIZING GAMMA RADIATION (IRRADIATION) USING COBOLT-60

If you have purchased and used sterile colour from any source then you have probably been exposed and exposed your clients to COBOLT-60! Also it is a known fact that exposure to COBOLT-60 will change the molecular structure of some plastics and pigments, what may have been safe to use prior to exposure to COBOLT-60 may be harmful or problematic after exposure.

Machine setup recommendations:

Irezumi Max colours (excepting Triple 6, Tribal and Pearl) are made from pigments with an average particle size of 8-11 microns. They will give excellent results with any machine set and used to a professional level, although they are deliberately designed to be used with a strong running machine, idealy a Pulse-Matic, running quite slow (low trauma technique ) and when used like this will give outstanding results! This allows the artist to saturate or blend colours causing the absolute minimal amount of trauma to the clients skin. Running at higher speeds then recommended below can result in extra unnecessary pain for the client, extra trauma to the clients skin causing slower heal out times, heavier scabbing resulting in colour loss. The secret to bright, vibrant, even colour is to get them in (properly) with minimal trauma!
This in no way means your hand speed need be slow, as an artist I work faster then many other artists that I know, but for full colour saturation and blending I run my machine at around 6000 strokes per minute. If using D.C. machines this is 100Hz. However to get DC machines to run at the lower end speeds without losing hitting power you will need to use softer front springs and modify other settings, very few D.C. machines are capable of running at slower speeds and retaining any penetrative power.
For Pulse-Matic users the line on the frequency adjuster dial will be at around 10-11 o'clock to be in the 100Hz range.
A very simple way, ( if you don't have a HZ meter ) to gauge machine speed is to run your machines needles over a sheet of paper for 1 second and count the holes made in the paper and divide by the amount of needles in the cluster ( it's easier to use a one needle liner ) this will equal Hz, if your timing is right it is very accurate!
The biggest cause of washed out and weak colour, provided the machine has good penetrating power, ( excludes most D. C. machines available from China ) is that the artist is running his/her machine way to fast! Micron sized pigments need time to flow under the needle prior to the needles going back in after each stroke, once machine speeds increase above the optimum speeds for this to happen you will get needles penetrating the clients skin which have little or no pigment under them, thus creating extra puncture holes in the clients skin for little or no gain, also at high speeds the needles tend to "spear" through the pigments instead of pushing them in.
These colours are also designed to be used with industry standard #10-12 sharps needles, these are .30 to .35mm in diameter. We note a lot of needles being sold from various suppliers are now being labeled as number 12's when they are in fact a lot thinner ( thinner needles are cheaper to make ). We even had an artist bring in his 7 needle tight liner to get the best tip to suit, they were loose in our 3 needle tip and were in fact a lot smaller then our standard 3 liner cluster made from #10's! Colour gets very hard to put in properly once your needles get below .3mm dia.
and above .35mm dia.
Triple 6, Tribal and Pearl black are all made from "Nano" sized particles which are very small, which allows them to flow under the needles at higher rates and speed then micron sized pigments, so can be worked at higher speeds although I personally line and shade using these blacks at around 100-120Hz.

Some notes on colours:


(a) Black Pearl Jet, a softer shade of black, has very good flow properties and is made from medium structured particle black, this ink makes clean, sharp lines three needle and up. Also ok as a shading ink if you are wanting a nice softer black look. Good all round softer shade black and makes a beautiful wash.

(b) Tribal Black, made from a finer, lower structured particle size, then Jet Black, so quite a lot darker. Recommended for all shading and line work that needs to be very black, especially for in-fill work, Tribal etc. Also perfectly fine and nice black for line work one needle and up.

(c) Triple Six Black, made from slightly higher structured particle black, similar to Kuro-sumi, Zuper, Panthera black etc. only blacker. Suitable as an all round black for lining and shading and solid infil. Goes in easy and is very black! Great as the dark black on your piece with pearl as the soft black. I use this black for just about everything.

(d) Ebony Shading Black. Black pigment, not a black blended with white, heals to a semi transparent/opaque grey. Excellent where you want a contrast between blacks. This black should initially be Tattooed in solid to get best results as it will then heal out evenly, don't try to soft shade with it until you are used to how it works or healing could be uneven. Once you are used to how this pigment performs you can apply as a solid fill or as soft shade.

(e) Sepia Shading Black. Also a black pigment, same uses as (d) but has a slight brownish (sepia) undertone to it.

Black Wash. ( Sumi, Grey Wash ) You can make black washes from our Pearl, Tribal and 666 black. We recommend that you start with 2 dilution's, 1 part Black + 5 parts Vehicle, 3 parts Black + 5 parts Vehicle.
Vehicle is the correct term for the liquid portion of the mix. The vehicle can be made with 50% Glycerin (food/medical grade) 30% Distilled Water and 20% Isopropyl Alcohol. Many suppliers just recommend distilled water however when you use water by itself it also makes the ink very thin so it will just all fall off your needles as soon as you hit the foot switch and it is very hard to keep under the needles to work. By adding the glycerin you are retaining a good viscosity in the ink while still diluting pigment in the ink, this allows you to keep the mix under your needles longer and make it easier to work.
Also bear in mind that all ink have preservatives in the formulation to stop mold growth in storage, by diluting the ink with just water you are also diluting the preservative which, without the addition of some extra protection can lead to mold growth over time, this is why we recommend a small amount of alcohol be added, this will help protect the ink and it will also help wet out ( wetting agent ) the ink on the skin. Inks should also be stored in a dark, cool location when not in use, mold needs light to grow!
You will get different shades from different Blacks, the above percentages are a starting point not a rule! you will eventually find the right mix for you and your style requirements.

Voodoo Green, specially formulated colour to give an off green shade to black shading, looks really good blended to the outside of black shading especially around skulls, etc.

For those of you that like to make colour portraits, Lusty, Moulin Rouge and Coral Sunset are blended especially to give nice skin tones from dark to light, much nicer then using browns.

Please note that the colours in the above chart have been represented as closely as is possible to the real colour using professional colour calibration software on our system, however depending on your operating system, browser or individual settings variations may occur, for example we know on some systems Reds can appear Brown, Browns Red, Greens Blue and Blues Green!
