Where ever your commemorative tattoo is, is one of the most connecting things one can do, when someone has lost a loved one.
The Foundation Of Crematioon Ink ®
Approximately 12 years ago, a tattoo studio called Bubblegum Ink, in Cheshire in the UK, took a professional step in developing a technique to incorporate a lost loved one’s ashes into the tattoo ink itself.
The technique guaranteed no issues with healing and was safe for use for their clients. International fame and enquires poured in over the years, with the team finally making the decision to set up the service on an international remote basis, calling the company Cremation Ink ®.
We now have the ability to supply you with a cremation tattoo ink which utilizes techniques honed from years of being recognised as at the apex of the cremation ashes tattoo industry. Cremation Tattoo ink ® is now used around the globe by international tattoo artists, but what’s the process?
Getting Cremation Tattoo Ink
Once the client makes an order, a kit is swiftly sent out to them for them to send the ashes back to us in a professional and safe manner. We only need a teaspoons worth to work with and please not any of the ashes you send that are not incorporated into the actual tattoo ink will be send back to you at the same time as we return your ashes infused ink.
When we get the ashes back on our side, we assign one of our technicians to the ashes and they follow them through all the processes involved. A more detailed description of what is involved in the process is explained on further pages on Cremation Ink’s website, but the fundamentals are that we match both the ashes and the tattoo pigment on a molecular basis, this ensures that the ashes and tattoo ink will fundamentally come together.
Cleaning The Ashes
All heavy metals and medicinal and environmental remnants are removed from the ashes, as well as other processes to ensure a safe and high quality ashes infused tattoo ink..
Don’t think that because the ashes have gone through the extreme temperatures of a cremation that they are in fact sterile and free from contaminants. They are not. We make everything safe and hygienic, process and produce the tattoo ink and amalgamate them together.
