What If The Ashes Are Too Coarse ?

We get this question a lot, as some people feel they may need to have small ground up ashes etc for us to make our world recognized Ash Inks. Its fine, ashes come in a multiude of particle sizes, all being relevant to the crematorium that processed the body. There are a plethora of machines on the market that are used by the crematouriums to reduce the deceased’s remains to a more uniform size and so we are used to dealing with a vast array of ashes configurations.


We use very specialist machines to reduce the ashes to the specific sizing we need to create our ash ink. Once their sizing has been analyzed and confirmed, then we carry on with the process of creating your tattoo ink with ashes.

Due to our many years in this bespoke field, we have encountered many different sets of ashes, which are not standard to the normal visualization of cremation ashes. We all as standard expect cremation ashes to be light grey in looks, when in fact they come in multitude of colours. Yellow, dark black and even orange, these are usually slightly coloured by the enviroment that the ashes were formed in and residual elements that are held in the ashes.


Elements that the magnets at the crematourium has not picked up can sometime be found, so don’t be alarmed if you find any small elements in the ashes.


We have come across the following ashes colours;

  • Tinged Light Grey Ashes
  • Tinged Dark Grey Ashes
  • Tinged Pink Ashes
  • Tinged Orange Ashes
  • Black Ashes
  • Cream Ashes

We sometime get asked if there are any different ways that the client should look after their new tattoo, as it has ashes infused into it. The easy answer is no, with the integration we perform and the processes, the tattoo ink and ashes are infused. This way its like looking after a normal tattoo.

If your questioning what to use or you have forgotten what your tattooist has told you, as very cheap and effective treatment for any tattoo is to use Bepanthen nappy cream for babies. Not Sudocrem etc, make sure it’s Bepanthen as it’s been used to quickly and effectivley heal tattoos for years.
