I've been trying to research tattoo inks for the past hour or so. I want to get a tattoo, but I wouldn't be able to get over the fact that there is something potentially toxic in my body. The tattoo artist that I would go to uses Intenze and Starbrite. So far I've found out that Intenze uses ABS plastic in their colors, which I'm not too thrilled about, but I can't find anythiiiiing on their black inks.
It's just hard to find stuff on specific brands. From my research I've found that most black inks are carbon black, and therefore pretty safe and non-toxic. So worst case, I would just get a non-colored tattoo, which I'm completely fine with.
So, question number one: Does anyone know if the black inks for Intenze are carbon black? Or at least not made with ABS plastic.
Question two: Does anyone know anything about Starbrite pigments/ their black inks?
