Earnest Questions with Earnest Answers…
Hello! I did some stick and pokes about 4 years ago with an India ink which I can’t remember the brand name of and a sewing needle. They’re both about 2 inches circular (a sun and a moon) on my ankle. Now back then there was little information about what inks to use, what needles were appropriate and how to sanitize needles; luckily I did not ever get an infection and the tattoos both came out pretty dark and faded a pretty blue-ish color.
Now what I’m wondering about is toxicity of India ink and chrome from needles, and how long it would take for effects to be considered benign or if there could be long term effects from some of those compounds.
I’m not sure that you all would have any information on this but figured I’d ask. I would assume that if there was some ill effects I would have noticed that they would have been apparent by now but with the pigment still being in your skin one can’t help but look at it and wonder!
Thanks for your time and would love a second opinion!
hi i ordered your stick and poke set (to austria), just wanna say thanks, it was really fast, everything perfect.
now i have a question regarding the ink: is it possible to use the ink bottles for more than one tattoo? if you always fill the ink to the little jar? because if not, why is it in these big bottles ?
thank you, rosa
It is safe to re-use ink in the sealed bottle (within like a few months) if it is not contaminated in the process of the first use. 🙂 Needles – not the case!
Please can you tell me if your kits are suitable for vegans?
