Alla Prima Inks

Posted by Tom on 06/03/09

I really like the color range Alla Prima has... but since its Josh Carlton's line, I am sure it is formulated to his style of tattooing.

Josh's style is tip top of course... but not my style at all. I tend to do solid saturations. I've been using Eternals... but tired of their inconsistency of color and I really only like their dusty purple range (the plum, wild orchid, dusty rose, fleshtone)... HATE their blues, yellows, and greens.

any experience with alla prima? any luck with color packing with them?

who's bashing who?

and to the other response...

i didn't see any alla prima topics, just stuff about Josh himself.

I'd like to know about ALLA PRIMA inks... their consistency, their quality, and if they are suited to heavy saturations. I really like the range of colors.

The owner of our shop is using Alla Prima and loves it ,Its kind of like thinned Eternal, and I agree about Eternal everytime i get a new bottle it a dif shade. They destroyed a perfect golden yellow three years ago the golden yellow was great , now its poo. I was once told a great artist can addapt him or herself to dif pigments and machines and roll with it.......
sorry bout the run ons and crap typing i'm just lazy right now

i bought the entire rack of 1oz samples. the traditional blue and green were pretty sweet as well as the seafoam, primary yellow, and red. went in easy and healed out great. there were some that didnt do so well at all. almost every tattoo i did with the primary orange dropped out significantly. i found i didnt have a use for a lot of the colors. im more of a fan of staying with primaries and secondaries and mixing from there. keeps it nice and simple. in the end, im more happy with the other pigments i use. im a fan of unique and a few others for here and there stuff. oh, and the 1oz bottles were extremely tough to squeeze, and hard to get anything out of.

RE:Alla Prima Inks

Posted by minamismud on 07/26/09

i ordered a couple of the colors cobalt , seafoam ,and forest green. i had high hopes for them and the seafoam has been great , have not realy used the cobalt, but have had problems wwith the green. right away when i opened it it smelled really really strong of alcohol. i looked at it and it looked a bit foney too and then i realized the label was a lot bigger than the other lables on the other bottle. well i tried to use it on a friend and it was just crap not workin at all. so i figured i got a bad batch so i called unimax and told them the problem so they sent me a new bottle free of charge. well today i tried the new bottle (which looked better) and like the previous one it had a very strong alcohol smell and just wasnt workin at all. like i said im still hopin that my luck is just that bad because i would realy like to give more of it a chance just based off of the seafoam , but i can not bring myself to buy anymore till i get some feedback. has anyone else had this problem? (with strong alcohol smell?) when i say strong i mean strong. as soon as i dip needle in the cap and start running it on skin its like a alcohol air freshner was plugged in. thanks for any help

when i order pigment i only order it from the company that makes it out of fear that the other guys that sell it are watering it down or tampering with it in some way.
