Kuro Sumi Inks are the Best Black Tattoo Ink

It may be a bold statement to state but Kuro Sumi inks are the best black tattoo ink on the market. Professional artists and old school artists that have tried it, stick with it. This stuff, despite being true black, is not thick like other brands and therefore also goes in the skin easily. This brand also heals dark and stays dark, unlike other brands that may heal dark but fade into blue or some other strange tint a few years later.
