Ive seen it brought up before but what do they have to do to meet the europe market. Just a list of ingredients or something more. Its odd that they would have to sell a different ink in Europe.

It's not so easy. There are no Rules in the States . Anybody can sell any colour. Laws in Europe are more strikt.

Tattoo colour sold to Europe needs to be sterile, it's a regulation. Most manufacturers are exposing their colour to Cobalt 60 to achieve this (irradiation), it's never been approved for Tattoo colour, so you people in the USA are probably lucky you are not part of an unknowing experiment!

I agree totaly with that.....they said that we have to "implant" sterile stuff inside the skin (sound normal...in fact) but the process to do that for ink is not prove to be safe ...so what do we have to do...why they don.t trust the company that selling ink for years and with no problem or reaction why they don.t do a real research about it????...it.s a shame ...it.s why a lot of artist here trust what they learn from experience (or from other artist) and hide the stuff that arent "legal".....I can tell you also bout the case of spain that is even worse (and stupid) but I will go mad and not sure to make my point as my english is limitated.....hope this shit will change and that people stop seeing us as stupid freaks.........cheers

It couldnt be the the sterility thing because starbrite from tommys is sterile and also when someone opens a bottle in order to use it what happens? air hits it and is no longer sterile so i believe its just a different recipe made to be as close as it can be to their original

I think the reciepe is the same as you dunno use something forbidden by the european community....the problem is that we are "like" you now, we have law in each country/state and a general for all europe ....so what is true or not is evn impossible to know for us.....what can or cant we use (and why?)....

I tried both Eternal from the States and Eternal Europe. They are different. The most disappointing is Black and Greywash. But lot of Companies in Europe have trouble with creating a good Black.
In Europe the Health Dep. tries to make Tattoocolor safer and I trust the Health Dep. more then a Ink Supplyer. Because most of them don't even know or give a s... what is in their color.
You wonder why your Red needs more time to heal? Maybe it is because there is too much 0-ansidine in it.
You are interested in just to use vegan color but never ask if the color you use is an Azo-pigment.
It is a shame that FDA does nothing to make Tattoo Inks safer in the US.

If I had to guess I would say the European inks are azo free. If you are interested in doing some lengthy and wordy reading on azo pigments, check out these articles: http://epub.uni-regensburg.de/10673/1/Dissertation_Engel_Bib.pdf

Max, I am curious about what the case is in spain...also does anyone know where I can learn about tattoo regulations in the EU?

nobody can help about what are the law about that even the administration are wordless a lot of time.....as you asked for the case in spain was that we "have to" use an ink barand that was approved by the government (a shitty ink called sani color....that don.t stay in the skin) and now they will quit this product for micropigmentation ink in single use caps........even for tattoo artist ...this shit doesn.t exist in a lot of color and is incredibly expesnsive.......so all the profesional shop are hidding theyre stuff in case of inspection....but that make the thing even unsafer......a shame.....hope I was clear (im french and my english is not so good and less when I have to write it down)

In Scotland our Environmental Health officers need to see a test certificate showing that all pigment used is safe for use. From my talks with our EH guy they don't care if its sterile or not, it only needs certification.

Our Eternal is tested in the Netherlands I think, as are many others. Most of our suppliers state whether or not there is certification available to download.

Aside from that I find most of our Eternal is excellent aside from the trouble we have packing in the Blue's and Green's.

Dark red is amazing
Lightning Yellow is really vivid
White is thick and bright
Tribal Black rules
Magenta is so awesome

I could go on. There is a huge difference in the consistency of the inks as some are paste like and others very watery but aside from the blues and greens I recommend them.
