Even if you narrow down your options by deciding to purchase from Painful Pleasures, you still have more than a dozen brands to contemplate and weigh against each other. To start sorting through those options, ignore the brands themselves for a moment and think about tattoo ink characteristics in general.
When we evaluated the basic qualities that distinguish tattoo inks from each other in In our article Differences Between Tattoo Ink Brands, we found that the top tattoo ink brands on the market today can all be categorized and differentiated from each other by looking at these key characteristics:
- Country of Manufacture
- Vegan-Friendliness (containing no animal-based glycerin, & no animal testing)
- Organic or Inorganic Composition (all pigments derived from natural ingredients)
- Pre-dispersed or Stable Pigments (i.e. “shake & use” inks vs. pigments you’ll have to mix and thin before using)
- Overall Price
If any of these qualities stands out as important to you, take note, and then look at our tattoo ink characteristics by brand charts to find the brands that have the qualities you care about most.
