How Do Tattoos With Ashes Work?




In many ways the tattoos with ashes are created via a similar process to that time when you are getting a regular tattoo. The artist will use the Cremation Ink ® and because of the quality of the ink pigments involved, they can use every artistic ability they have, to make your desired tattoo design, permanent and stunning.


When you order from us, we will ship you a small kit for you to send us back your loved one's ashes in a safe manner. We only need a tablespoons worth of ashes per bottle ordered. You post it back to us and when we get it, we will assign one technician to follow the ashes through the whole treatment, ensuring that they only deal with your order. The ashes goes through various processes, including the removal of all heavy metals, medicine remnants and other contaminants, as well as multi layer sterilization protocols. The ashes are matched to the molecular size of the tattoo pigment you've selected and this means that when the ashes and tattoo ink are combined, your loved ones ashes will be truly infused in the tattoo ink. Then we send your infused ink back to you, with any ashes you sent that were not used in the process.

Can you have more than one tattoo with ashes?




That depends on what you expect and how many tattoos you want to get. It also depends on the ashes and what amount you want to keep and how many tattoo designs you have in mind. For the most part people will want just a single tattoo, others will want way more than one. You are the only one in control here and you really have to figure out what to do and what to expect from all of this. It can totally be worth it if you want to go through with this. Your Ashes infused tattoo ink is bottled in a sterile bottle similar to standard tattoo ink. This keeps the ink and ashes inside in their sterile state and it will arrive, ready for your tattoo artist to use straight away.

As an example from a long term tattooist, the 30ml bottle supplied by Cremation Ink ® is enough to color in nearly every part of the whole of your forearm. Unless your designing a whole sleeve, one bottle per color should easily be enough.

Are Tattoos With Ashes Safe?




Safety is a concern when it comes to any tattoo. And it’s even more so when we are talking about tattoos with ashes. The thing that you do need to keep in mind here is that cremated ashes are burned at a temperature of around 1750 degrees Fahrenheit, but they are not 'clean'. That is why people flock to our service. We make sure all contaminants are removed, ( the list of contaminants still in cremation ashes after leaving the intense heat of the cremation chamber is large ), don't worry we remove them all, clinical tests showing our procedures produce an inert, safe and sterile ink that is perfect for use in your tattoo.


Thankfully, since our ink will not cause any form of infection, all you have to make sure is that the tattoo equipment in your chosen tattoo studio is sterilized. So yes, tattoos with ashes are actually very safe when combined with the services of Cremation Ink ®.

How quickly can you heal?




As we mentioned earlier, there will be some itchiness when it comes to any new tattoo, so you have to expect a few things to happen along the way as the tattoo heals. Will the ashes infused ink affect how fast the tattoo heals? Obviously not, there might be a few other things that increase or decrease the healing process time, but the fact that you are using cremated ashes is not one of them.

It’s important to keep that in mind because a lot of people do believe it will affect them. But the reality is that it won’t when processed by Cremation Ink ® and that’s exactly what really matters in a situation like this. Use a good anti-bacterial cream such as the nappy cream Bepanthen and if your tattoo itches or feels dry, then apply the Bepanthen. You can’t over Bepanthen a tattoo, whether its a tattoo with ashes or just a standard new tattoo.
