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.

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.

We spent a lot of time researching different formulas and pigments to help us create a strong white that can be used for both highlights and mixing. Our white is thick enough for larger fields of solid saturation and thin enough for highlights. It is the highest lightfast white we have found, meaning it will stay white longer in the skin.
