Our Inks

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.

    Corey Oda

    Private Studio/ Ottawa, Canada

    Corey ‘Oda’ Popp is an emerging Japanese-American contemporary artist, currently living and working in the rural French Canadian countryside, who's works can be found in exhibits, permanent collections and museums around the globe. Primarily working in oils, Oda creates hyperrealistic paintings with the traditional Japanese aesthetic of wabi-sabi- a practice in simplicity and reduction. With meditative method and application, Oda’s work expresses an appreciation of the ingenious integrity of natural objects and process, as he paints large scale stones and minerals, that remind the viewer of where the advanced world we now live in, was built from.
