Greetings everyone! Has anyone ever made their own tattoo ink? I got a stick n poke in the county jail ten years ago and the ink was made from finely shaved graphite from pencils mixed with shampoo and toothpaste lol. The tattoo actually hasnt faded much. I know there is another way to make black ink using soot. Really I'll probly buy some tattoo ink or india ink but I'm always thinking DIY.
