Fine Art First
Made for tattoo artists by tattoo artists
It's time to set a new standard. In our industry's long history, a lot has changed. Machines have more powerful motors than ever before. Stencils can be printed to photographic quality. Cartridge needles took the industry by storm. Ink caps are even advancing.
So much time, money and energy are spent on the products we use, yet the inks have remained the same. The ink industry hasn’t deviated from the original formula. Empire has raised the standard and brought the fundamentals of art into the industry. Combining knowledge of art and tattooing with the best chemists in the field, we bring you a safe and consistent ink to work with.
Ivory Black is Empire's darkest black. Expect a clean and even darker representation of our classic black formula ideal for packing black with excellent saturation. Ivory Black's smooth consistent blend maintains a medium viscosity and contrasts well with warm skin tones.

WHITE WASH SERIES
Our new White Wash system allows artists to achieve a smoother gray value with less effort. Many artists add a few drops of white into their graywash. This helps us get a more deliberate value, without needing to build it up through layers. You can expect consistent ink that heals similar to an opaque gray but goes into the skin like a graywash.
