Out of all the colors that I have been making , black was always the hardest , it is really difficult to create a black for lining , that is easy to work with and stays black , but after a few years of developing it is finally here .
Black label set is going to have a lining black , a shading from light to dark of 3 tones , and a Solid Black , which is perfect for tribals and big black patches , the ink is made out of finely grounded black carbon, and is easy to apply thanks to the big load of pigment .
And yes , for all of you out there , asking for who is making the ink , the answer is ME , and off course wife and friends working together , I’m a full time tattooer loving what I do , and dedicating mornings into making colors.
This is a Family business , and I’m proud of that , so you should , because you are being part of this , I’m just a tattooer taking care of his industry , no business man trying to take what is ours … think about it .
I spent some days in Denmark with Henning Jorgensen and friends, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of his Royal Tattoo, a great weekend , lots of fun , and grateful to be part of his book , coming out next year.
From there I headed to London , where I did some tattoos at Love Hate shop , in Nothing Hill , then like every year , we did the London Tattoo Show , great as always , the best Tattoo Convention worldwide . We spend the weekend tattooing at the booth with Ami James , Chris Garver , Tommy Montoya , Darren Brass , and I . We had a great time !
This are some photos , enjoy !
