Where We Started
Bubblegum Ink got approached by a couple to get a tattoo done with their grandad’s ashes into the tattoo ink. They had fantastic allies in being able to make this happen and that was that most of their regulars were from the huge pharmaceutical company Astra Zenica in Macclesfield, giving them access to the top equipment and minds in all aspects from microscopic testing to DNA testing, the list goes on.
With access to a wealth of consultants as well, due to family ties, they could research the medicinal sides as well.
If that wasn’t good enough, they also had good friends whom owned funeral homes and could lead them through all the principles and actions in the crematorium.
The Tattoo Artist That Used Ashes With Success.
6 months of collecting data and with testing and research, gave them a system of protocols to follow that would ensure that the ashes would be safe to use and would hold with the tattoo ink.
When it came to the tattoo ink, they spent months talking to original old school tattooists on ways to formulate their ink. In the original days all the tattooist created their own inks. Some were good at it; some were experts at it and that’s who they dealt with.
Finding The Solutions
So, they had the two pieces of the puzzle, a dedicated ink formulation and viscosity flow match to the ashes integration quantities and they had got the ashes to an inert state through vaporization and other techniques, which is sterile and perfect for amalgamation with the ink pigment and in doing so creating the commemorative tattoo ink.
The day of the tattoo for the two clients went fine and they even invited a local paper to do a little low down on the project. This in turn the next day turned up all around the globe. With Tv shows phoning for interviews and the media pushing the story, Bubblegum Ink passed everything over to the two clients. Yes, they had committed a long time on making it happen, but it was the clients tattoos and the client’s grandads’ ashes that was for them, the story.
