Sink.
i think that "india ink" denotes black exclusively. i think what you are talking about are inks for nib pens, or quills.
like so.. Winsor & Newton Drawing Inks - BLICK art materials
they would probably work, except that most inks ive come across arent completely opaque, and being that you can dilute them with water, your body may break it down quickly. they are also probably just as, if not more, expensive than inks made for specifically for tattoos. if youre getting them free then go for it!

I've seen stab n pokes with color (including red) and they all looked alright. I'm halfway thinking about getting a face tat with white ink

Do check the composition of the ink.Some craft inks are analaine dye base,and are quite toxic.
yes
yes this is true. in some cases its cheaper or barely more expesnive to get real tattoo ink, which is atleast a few shades bnlacker, the skin takes it better, and it lasts longer. beasically better. colored india inks though, are funny. the white, is zinc, so it will change colors, especially in the sun. my frineds tipped cow onher wrist goes to a nice sickly yellow. to toher off shades witht he day. and its sort of raised.myeveryone takes inks differently too. with me and a few friends. the blue india inks are very hard to get in. my ear was jsut 2 blue lines, we had to go over it 3 times. witht h blue india ink.my hand i got done wit a different brand of blue india. andit all peeled off in th month between mineeapolis and washington. then it got done over by my friend with his machine and ink and that ink didnt come out. so it jsut depends what works for you. mixeng th india ink oclors can make really cool shit though. some are also really watery. you can add ash too it to thcken it up. lots of people use cig ash. i kinda think its gnarly. but ive heardof people making their own ink with wood ash and such and having it turn out fine. ive been doing stick n pokes for about a year and a half or 2 years and im tryin to just get th best i can. as for needles, tattoo needles arent hard to get , they come in mainly straights and rounds. so youcould have a 4 straight which would be like 4 needles saudered together in a line. or a 3 round, like 3 saudered together in a bunch. different shit for different shit yknow? so youcan take sewin needles an wrap em together with thread. i usually always jsut go with two. an i wrap em up to the end of where i want the depth to be. it does help alot with holding ink so you dont have to dip as much. if its alot of needles they usually hold ink between them pretty well. iwould say just take your time wrapping, an make different sets for one peice if you have to. and with colors. ive had red india ink work for me , and ive seen many frinends use it with success.ive never had yellow india work for me. way too watery,just sort of temporarily makes th skin look a strange tint. ive also seen green work very well, especiallymixed .then theres so amny insane amounts of other colors out there. jsut try around. hobby lobbys sometimes eep em in front if you jsut wanna graba fuckn rainbow of ink off th shelf n run.
butyeah good luck, dont fuck anyones skin up. try not to get hep, anddd dont do stupid tattooeson yourself when you bored jsut cause youcan. its silly

how far would you say you'd generally want to stick the needle(s) into your skin?

Basically, just until you feel the needle poke through the skin, you get the feel for it pretty fast

ive had a really shitty one on my wrist for 4 or 5 years now an its not really fadin at all. all things needa be touched up someday but yah iwith india ink howver it looks when you do it, it usually sticks that way, with tattoo ink itll be super bright an vibrant when you first get it, an usually dull out pretty quick, but still be good and still last for along time. an it depends on depth an shit, which is different for every area of skin. n yeah D's right with that try shit on yourself to see how deep yougota go if you need to.
