Brown ink

I've been noticing for the past few years that the brown inks I've been using heal rough, fall out, and generally look really bad once healed. I've used browns from intenze, fantasia, and eternal. It's just the browns, none of my other colours look this way. Anyone else experience this? Is it just me?

I've tried and liked fusion's power brown which is a dark brown and the regular old brown. I'd say that my favorite has to be waverly brown which is so thick it 'stands up' in the cap lie a cone of softserve ice cream, but works in really nicely. Try the waverly broham!

If you're doing a tattoo with brown shading, vs. solid brown - i've found it helpful to mix opposite colors on the color wheel. You get way more tone in it- try mixing like lavender and yellow, primary blue and orange, green and red- etc.The result isn't really a true brown, but it definitely gives you a lot more range than just a straight brown. For a true brown - try chocolate or coco or something i think it's called by Starbrite. It's a really good middle brown, it's horrible for mixing - but it goes in the skin well and is a good deep primary brown. If you cut it with a little water or alchohol/glycerine mix, it's good for shading out areas too.
