Fantasia's pigment sucks, if they wouldnt cut the shit to save money it might be worth a damn. Try Micky Bees or Micky Sharpz pigments! although Perma Pro pigments which are endorsed by Guy Atchinson & Ed Hardy are fucking amazing and last for years and years to come...You can contact Phil Fairweather @ 817-276-9222 he is the owner and manufacturer of these pigments.

If you know how to tattoo, it will go in, and stay in. If you don't it wont.

All Tattoo pigments differ; in there pigment load- size of grind- suspention agent, e.t.c. I have been a tattoo artist for over 29 years now and, have never used the pigments you are talking about; if they are cheep/ or being sold on e/bay then you can bet your bottom dollar that the pigment load will be weak, the mixing agent will be cheap and you will be dissapointed. Use Sharpz inks, as I have for many years,or indeed - intenz,regards chris

weve had this discussion before, first and foremost it is all preference of the tattooist, in my opinion these are not great pigments, i have tried them, and I do not like how they work into the skin.

and I have to agree with the cost thing, if you are buying something "cheap" it will reflect in your work.

I have tried scream pigments, SOME of them are good, and they do go into the skin good. Normally I use Millenium, and I've used some Intenze. Intenze white is probably the best white i've seen. I just received word that scream is pulling all ferrari red because of allergic reactions and premature fading, as well as all pigments with red #8. I'll stick with my monthly red by millenium.

Scream Ink is going down. They are horrible. Did you know that the red ink causes cancer? Or the fact that Im permanently scarred because of it. Unless you like having your skin bleed,puss and have it raised by 3 mm for the rest of your life, DO NOT USE IT! BEWARE OF IT! ITS ALL SHADY!

regarding red from Scream producing cancer...
Let me tell you that all inks can produce cancer because the pigments contain different metals.

Led, cobalt, copper, arsenic, etc are metals "capable" of producing cancer or other deceases if present in the human body. That doesn't mean that every tattooed person will have cancer after getting a tat.
In the state of CA all pigments need or "Should" carry a health warning label just like cigarettes.
I don't know if every manufacture that sells inks to CA is actually enforcing it.

With this said: everything can almost cause cancer, contaminated air, food, water, alcohol, sun, pesticide, etc.

thought a link would be helpful.

I can't say I know enough about pigments and how they're manufactured or produced to really talk about it. But I do know that old saying about you get what you pay for holds true usually all the way across the board. As far as using inexpensive ink , It's probably about the same. I was a so called Kitchen magician lol , and I've never heard of scream nor seen it until recently, I'd always used Millenium or starbrite and once used prizm in a pinch like a fool. Even being as inexperienced as I was then and of course there are differences in every pigment available, there seemed to be a definite lack in quality on the prizm ink in comparrison to the mom's or starbrites. We all can laugh it off about the scream being junk ink and e-bay shoppers fucking up the industry but this lady's article seems to be a bit more relevant to negative impact on the industry itself as a whole.

Glad it's not too bad up there. I think it's funny how freaked out everyone was over this, and how it ended up being so mild. Good times!

At least it's knocked the muggyness out of the air! It's actually a tolerable temp. at the moment.

I've used scream ink (only the midnight black), and i would have to say it's worked pretty well. Although, I actually found some inks on ebay (yes i know... but i'm going to go against what everyone else says ) the brand is Royal Dragon, and It's some of the best ink ive used. It is basically all pigment.. some of the colors need to be thinned depending on artist preference. but they stick really well.. and in response to the person that said about having the tat raised 3 mm for the rest of their life... this wasnt the ink that did this.. it was someone that didnt know what they were doing...

We recently purchased an entire set of Scream Ink for our shop. We purchased it through worldwide tattoo supply, and YES think ink is GARBAGE. We generally use Intenz ink, but decided to check out scream inks due to their color selection. Every tattoo we have done with this ink has had allergic reactions or infections. By far the best inks that i have used, are intenz or starbright. Yes the scream inks are very bright, and look nice in the bottle, and they do go into the skin well. But like i said they are all causing allergic reactions and or infections, no matter what method of healing you try (INK FIX, H2OCEAN, TATTOO GOO, A/D...) nothing seems to help it. Be advised if you are using this, it is not just the ferarri red that is causing these reactions, the whole product line is bad because of the chemicals they are mixing the inks with.

Make of this what you will but I have been contacted by three different attorneys who represent three seperate clints that are suing the manufacturers and suppliers of Scream ink for irreparable damage to their skin because of the ingredients in Scream tattoo pigment and not all the damage was done by use of their red pigments either.

Since I had never used Scream pigment I could not help these people with their cases ( although one attorney asked if I would be interested in "embellishing" the truth and testifying on court...No fucking way!!!

Personally I will NEVER use anything on my clients that has such a bad reputation, but I can only advise you to use your won judgement...TAz

Scream INK, Well, I have never used it, but I do have an opinion on inks in general. A LOT of the inks on the market today use acrylics and other stuff, some are pretty much repackaged latex based products. "Mom" ink specifically uses ammonia in their inks, ammonia is used in latex products as a dispersant, and should NEVER be present in tattoo inks. Tattoo inks in general should be pigment, despersal agents such as medical grade glycerine, witchhazel, and maybe alcohol. Anything with a latex or acrylic base should never be used in someones skin. Spaulding Voodoo brand ink is pigment, glycerine, and water, Starbright is basically Pigment, distilled water, and alcohol (Ethyl not Isopropal). Intenze (What I use) is Pigment, Distilled Water, Glycerine, Witchhazel and sometimes isoproponal. Just a reminder, Intenze is one of the few brands that can legally be sold in the EU which is the only place that actually has regulations on what can and cannot be used in tattoo inks. If you do a chemical breakdown on SHIT like fantasia inks and the others, you will find that they are really nothing more than repackaged latex house paint. sure, they are bright, and they go in good. but would you want someone putting that crap in your skin? I think not, so if you wouldn't want anyone putting that crap in your skin you sure wouldn't want to use it on a customer.....

When I start throwing ink into skin it will more than likely be intenze or starbright - thats what all the inkin' professionals i know use... thats what is all over my arm.

I've started using intenze, the color saturation is very true in the skin, the white is the best I've ever used. Starbright is good, but I wasn't always pleased with every colors' result. I tried scream 1 time for a specific color purple they had that I liked, it would not take, bled out and I had to switch out in the process of my tattoo. Thank god it was a freind, I wouldn't have felt very professional saying this ink sucks to a client. It sucks, don't buy it & with all the scandel going on about it why would you even chance it.

Tattoo done in New Guinea

Hi,

I had a question about a tattoo I recently had done while in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. In the village, I had a tattoo done on my leg using a mixture of battery acid and the juice of a local leaf. It's a fairly small tattoo, but is the battery acid dangerous to health (because of heavy metals, etc) over a long-term period? I have no idea about tattoos, so I figured I'd ask you guys.

Thanks,
Ted

I am going to say this once.....DO NOT PURCHASE SCREAM INK. I knew we shouldn't have allowed it in our studio but you know what happens to artists when you say "NEW COLORS". With such a high reputation, of course anyone would think it would be ok to order from WORLD WIDE through ebay (they have a 99.9% positive seller rate).

This is sad but everyone that we have used the Ferrari Red on has the worst infections I have ever seen (even with high neglengence). I looked into every possible method to clear it up but have had no positive results. If anyone has any recommendations, I am willing to try, please email..BodyCO@bellnet.ca

Personaly ive always felt every artist tattoos differently, so in reality no one ink is "the best". What might work for some people will not for others. Not to mention that different clients will hold ink differently. For example, Waverly is really hard to put in for most inexperianced artists, however, it's EASILY the brightest on the market. Have you ever seen those blues and greens that almost glow? Its Waverly. But if an inexperianced artist tried to put it in, he/she would rip the shit out of the clients skin. Starbrite (in my opinion) goes in the easiest, and therefor is best for begginers, however for the pro.....there is much much much brighter inks out there. Personally, i use phil Fairweathers "unique". It goes in fairly easy and the color to me is unbeatable (and will hold for years). Just thought id throw in my 2 cents....... but seriously i think its all about finding what works best FOR YOU. Not what anyone else "thinks" is the best.

Hello everyone,

For those who are now SUFFERING due to use of SCREAM INK......let me know. I believe that we have a solution. It is a cream as someone suggested in above comments. To anyone else who has seen the effects of this ink, please make everyone you know aware of the situation. There really is something wrong with this ink, please don't kid yourself.

I too Have been SCARED FOR LIFE THANKS TO SCREAM INK!!
I bought a tattoo kit from wwta2.com and it came with scream ink. I was just learning to tattoo and did not have any one to ask what to buy cause at that time tattooing in South Carolina was illegal. So me and my friend tattooed my arm and his arm. it went in really easy was perfect the first day, how ever the second day started off really bad it had swollen and had got real red. i had put flames up my left arm and had plenty of red in it, i put a/d and tattoo goo on it but no results tried everything so i had to go to the doctor and get some antibiotics to clear up the infection. to day it has been right at a year after we did them, all the red had swollen and had little white spots that would get hard under the color and eventually would dry out now all the red is gone and the swelling is only where the ink remains that has not been pushed out yet. This INK IS SHIT, hell it should not be called Ink in the first place i have done better with burnt toilet paper ash ink. i recently bought starbrite and have been very satisfied, no problems at all, i think that everyone who has suffered for using this shit should start a class action law suite. any thats all i got to say.

do not use scream ink. it causes allergic reactions and swelling to those who get tattooed. it's something in their chemicals and there's a recall on all of their color selections right now. be very careful if you use scream ink.

in your case knight you werent scarred because of scream ink, you were scarred because you and your friend bought a kit and decided to tattoo eachother. learn from it and put the kit down. as for not having anyone to learn from, thats rediculous because there was a long time ban on tattooing in new york but some of the best artwork and artists arose from that. it was all underground but the point is that you wont stop tattooing or people from learning to tattoo just because its banned.

Reading about all these inks and i have tried alot over the years. I have a color set of scream ink i purchased a while ago collecting dust as i have purchased new Kuro Sumi Colors and they are simply amazing, goes in fast, clean and you know the name. I also like Iron Butterfly Colors, could be alil brighter but very nice none the less.

After reading about scream inks i'm alil worried to try them. Colors look nice but reading about their red causing reactions. So until i hear something solid about scream ink it will remain unused. I do wonder about the pics i seen of "allegid" reactions and it look like a cheap job done more than a reaction, over working the area or just crap needle. But to assume and possibly hurt someone, i dun think so.

Scream colors are just as good if not better than any other. i sell every ink out there. scream goes for $5.75 per 1oz. it is just as good if not better than mom, intenze, star brite. Now I found a new usa based company for my black outlining ink. I used to use kuro sumi. i was sent a sample of Jail House Tattoo Inc. I am hooked. it is sick!!!!!! Takes faster, darker, heals faster than any ink ive ever seen or used in 12 years of full time tattoo work. if u have questions-- jaysonrf@yahoo.com

scream tattoo left nothing but suffering to go through for the last 2 yrs. I had a red rose tattooed on my ankle, it never healed. I went to my dr.who tried to help with this situation at least 6 months. It is way past using vitamin e neosporin, a and d ointment, antifungal creams, pills and other over the counter lotions. I have insomnia from the ictching that absolutely drives me insane. The ink is below the surface so deep that I even saw 2 different dermatologists who on more than one occasion ingected me with 7-10 cc's of kenolog (a liqiud steroid). That only worked temporarily. I just went through my 6th lazor surgery (which is $360.00 each time) It still hasn't removed the tattoo. The lazor surgeon told me that he might have to cut it out of my leg! PLEASE DON"T USE THIS INK!!! This allergy to this ink keeps me from going in the sun and is more intensly irritated in a hot shower. I will be spending time at the beach in the shade this summer for the 2nd year, while my friends will be swimming without me .

I was advised yesterday by the service rep at world wide tattoo supply, to throw all scream ink colors into the trash. She said they "reformulated" their process, and the ink is "flawed" I spent the rest of the day calling clients and apologising, and making appointments to retouch their tattoos. Threw all the scream ink in the garbage and ordered Kuro Sumi colors. Some one posed that they had been contacted by lawyers about a class action lawsuit, I would love to know the lawyers name, and a contact number, I can tell him (or her) some stories, and I won't have to lie. World Wide will NOT stand behind this product, they say they're not obligated to refund or replace defective product, they are only a supplier. If you got bad ink from world wlde, notify them. They won't do anything, but they ought to be made aware. I threw 42 colors into the trash, yea, I bought the full color set, but I'm not taking any chances, had enough bad experiences with their ferrarri red and the emerald city green.

worldwide has "reformulated" it the msds sheets say its compliant with eu standards or something to that effect i think the scream and immortal and kokkai sumi are all the same from them i ordered some of the kokkai and it seems to go in alright to me and get some free samples i got scream turquoise havent used it yet but heres the description that is on the site : Scream Brand Tattoo Ink, has come back better then ever. After years of testing, the ink has been Scientifically Formulated & Artist Approved to be Premium Quality Tattoo Pigment Ink.
For customers that like a “Thicker” blend of tattoo ink like: Moms & Eternal Inks this will be the tattoo ink for YOU!!
and this is immortal : Immortal Pre-Dispersed Ink has been Scientifically Formulated to mix evenly with little or no effort at all. It has been Artist Approved and is a Premium Tattoo Ink.

For customers that like a “Thinner” blend of tattoo ink like: Dynamic Ink & Iron Butterfly Inks this will be the tattoo ink for YOU!!
when i was speaking to a guy from worldwide (canadian branch) he was sayin they basically copied eternal and changed it ever so slightly like a few extra drops of alcohol so that its not the same from there id say they added something to thicken it up and called it scream thinned it out and called it immortal

I have been doing Tattoos for 10 Year. I have tried many brands of inks. There is not 1 Brand of ink that I like the most. It all trial and error to see which inks work the best. Some people work good with one brand over other brands.

I like using Iron Butterfly for my Brown, Ronan Blood Wash, Kokkai Sumi for by outline, and Eternal and Intenze for my colors.

Remember to have your CUSTOMERS Sign the "Waiver" that if anything happens to the tattoo that you will not be held liable. When they sign the waiver they take all responsibility for what happens.

Some customers, dont take care of the tattoo properly, and that is what causes the tattoo to get infected. Like my first Tattoo 30 Years ago, i went to the beach after getting it, and it got all scabbed up and got infected.

I myself LOVE Tattoos, and even my Koi has the color Red and Orange will puff up from time to time. Sometimes due to weather, or if i get a pimple near that tattoo. Just dont touch it and it will be ok after a day or two. My Artist uses Dynamic Ink, and even there colors react with my skin, but not as bad as other people.

Try to stick with a Tattoo Artist that works well with you, I try to use the same artist that uses the same ink. This way i know this ink works well with my skin.

Getting Tattoos these Days are not what they use to be. It could be for Fashion, to remember a love one, or just for yourself.

No matter what you get, or who you get it from, or what ink you use. It is a risk. The risk is low to most, but there will be that 1% out of the Millions of people getting tattoos.

My suggestion is to star out with getting something small. Stick with Black if you can. All colored Ink have problems and you should be aware of the Risk.

Peace Out

Stay away from the reds. I know the Ferrari red was recalled, but I bought a set about 3 years ago that contained a different red (I forget, I think it was "cherry" or something) and I had never even heard of "red reaction" before, but I knew what it was after I used it a few times. It didn't affect me when I tried it, but I would say it had a mild up to a very bad effect on one out of twenty. I stopped using it as soon as I found out and contacted the company by mail. Never heard back. Switched to Starbright and as far as I know, it hasn't happened since.

My husband is a artist/tattoo artist, and has been for 20+ years. He started off with a home-made machine and india ink from hobby lobby, however he has also done pieces (back in the day 10+ years ago) with ash and baby oil etc.

He currently uses an array of ink from scream to prism, starbrite, kuri sumi greywash and outlining as well as kuri sumi colors, millennium, eternal, etc.

We have an array of ink because the reaction of the ink truly depends on each individual person. I have 2 half sleeves and my entire left leg on the outside collaged, plus other pieces here and there and I have all of the above ink in my work, on occasion I do get little bumps and itchiness but it is always completely random and not with any specific ink. But, I also have diabetes and other medical problems that cause my body to have such reactions.
In your waivers you need to make sure that your clients are up front and honest about any serious medical conditions they have, such as diabetes. I have had several doctors tell me time and time again not to get any more work because for one, diabetics have a notorious problem with the body healing itself. So yes, what most people spend healing in time of less than a week for their ink, mine take weeks, It is solely due to my medical problems.
You have to think about it like this, anything we put into our bodies that we were not born with, is foreign to it. If we weren’t born with it than our bodies system is going to work harder to rid itself of the foreign *contaminants*
Prescription medication can do the same type of things to people, as well as piercings. Look at basic food allergies as well as chemical allergies, and metal allergies etc.
As a diabetic, one medication I take is metformin. Depending on the manufacturer I have a very severe allergic reaction to the medicine. So my pharmacy has to order my prescriptions ahead of time from a specific manufacturer. The only way to learn this is through trial and error. While I have a problem with one manufacturer of the medications, millions of others do not. It’s all about our chemical makeup in our bodies.
Before my husband tattoos on a client, he takes several steps to determine the client’s skin type, and then tests in an inconspicuous place before doing the work, after this he will then explain the possibly reactions of the ink, and has the client sign a medical liability release waiver.
As mentioned before, I have all of those above inks in on my body as well as india ink and homemade ink. From time to time I have problems, but it is not only with scream ink, it is with all of it, and it really depends on my immune system and what my body is going through at the time. For example right now I have a horrible cold. Last time I had a cold, I had little white bumps pop up in random places. This is due to my white blood cell count being higher than normal to fight off whatever is causing me to be ill. I anticipate seeing them again soon since I woke up very ill this morning.


Sorry this post is so long.

I read through all these postings and here is my opinion.

I had always use Skin Candy and Intenze ink in my shop and it works very good for me. Then I tried out Scream Ink because my apprentice had a set. The moment I tried the super red and the lime green...I was hooked.

I have been tattooing 8 years now and I am register through the health county and have all business license to legally operate a tattoo shop. I have had nobody come back with an infection or compliant.

It's usually how you put the ink in and how you set the needles. I have fix tattoos and I have seen people come into my shop with other shop's work and it's amazing how these crappy ass tattoo artist is able to keep their shop open with all the crap ass work.

It's how you are trained to handle the skin. If you are not educated then most likely you are going to scar or tear some skin.

I use Scream Ink in my tattoo works and it goes in easy and stays bright on tan skins. But I do go back and forth with Skin Candy and Intenze.

Remember its not all about the product...it's a tool. the person that is running the machine has to know what they are doing. Someone can use Intenze and still scar or cause infections.

Most important....get some formal apprenticeship and learn to tattoo before ordering a tattoo kit and trying to be a tattoo artist. Not everyone can be a tattoo artist overnight.

***to finally answer your question....i would say yes. you can use Scream Ink. I used it and I am happy with the product. There are many product out there and endorse by many good artist but at the end of the day...these people didn't make the product one bottle at a time....a machine made it and mixed it. So it can go wrong anytime and in any bottle and any ink brand.

I have used the inks, since they *re-formulated* them in 2009. I find that like any tattoo ink you get what you pay for, as for knowing how to set ink...that is the biggest and most important thing of all. I mean I have done tattoos when I first started out with the "ink" that comes with a "tattoo kit" and those tattoos are still beautiful today. But I do have to say since the new formula the inks have become very watery and they are more like shading inks then good for actual coloring.

Dude, Scream Ink is straight dangerous! They are NOT made in the USA as they claim. I even visited the factory in China that made thse terrible inks and when I brought it up to Worldwide and asked if this was the case, they did not deny it.

Anyways, regardless of the origin, the quality is terrible. I have clients that had ink fade only after 6months. Others had some really adverse skin reactions. I decided to upgrade to Eternal and have stuck with it since.

AVOID SCREAM INK AT ALL COST! YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR!

I realize this is about scream ink and it is a really old post and everyone has there choice when they tattoo and the ibks they use and etc...But as far as you get what you pay for I agree in some instances but what about radiant? I have used intenze, starbrite, moms,prizm, and Radiant and I have to say Radiant is by far the beat ink for my style of tattooing that i have ever used. I dont like the black for black I use intenze gold label for outlining and for as far as grey wash i also use intenze and kuro but for colors i only use Radiant they have an amazing selection of colors they pop very well after they heal and even before healing look better than any other ink ive used and as far as price Radiant is just as cheap as scream or prizm but thats because its newer to the industry not bwcause the quality. So i reccomend it to everyone. Also it has great selection of pastels of course every artist has certain colors they still use from a different supplier such as starbrite and intenze but Radiant is by far the best all around color ink i have used IN MY OPINION AND IN ALOT OF OTHER USERS OPINIONS. And the caps are just to emphasise the fact that ink is mostly about opinion. Ans your style of tattooing for example your hand speed determines what thickness of ink you should use or that will work best for you atleast. Anyway thats just my input.
