Today we are laying out a report on the use of the КРАСКА Tattoo Ink, which the company provided us specifically for live testing!

As a tester of the palette acted the resident artist of the MAIN Tattoo studio - Yura Jay-b Taran.

Yura works in Neo traditional and Traditional tattoo styles, using an extensive palette of colors and non-standard plots..

We were interested in personal experience to find out exactly how these pigments behave in work, how they mix, paint and we wanted to give a real assessment of the quality of the pigments.

The work was carried out according to one of the ready-made Yura's sketches, in which are used combinations of bright, saturated colors with muted beige and green shades, respectively, the first point of this test was the selection of inks according to the sketch.

All the necessary colors and even more were found in the КРАСКА palette. In fact, the palette is so vast and has so many options for shades for each color that the question of choice is even somewhat complicated. This is an absolute plus for those who do color work.

The second phase of testing was color mixing. The КРАСКА also successfully passed this test, because the consistency of the pigments is quite liquid and mix well with each other. Additionally, it was nice to find that when the pigments are mixed directly during operation, in tips, when dipping the needle in several shades, the color in the cap does not clog with the previous colors, remaining clean.

Absolutely all pigments mixed perfectly, including even situations of mixing color and gray shades for less saturation. White color was practically not used in the work.

The work was carried out according to the classical scheme, from outlines to colors. For the purity of the experiment, the work was carried out by several induction machines for outlines and rotary for colors.

Two needle configurations were used in the outlines part: 18 True Liner by the Vlad Blad was selected for thick outlines, and 5 Hair Liner, also by the Vlad Blad, for thin outlines. There were no complaints about the inks of the КРАСКА, the black pigment behaved perfectly, both on thin and thick outlines. All of them were made from the first pass.

The colored part of the tattoo was done with a rotary machine, from top of the tattoo to bottom, using 9 Soft Magnum needle by the Vlad Blad.
