Distilled Water

Distilled water can be extremely useful within the tattoo industry to ensure that you can revive and rejuvenate inks that have been exposed to heat or separated in travel. Distilled water is ideal for creating the ideal fluid consistency you need for accurate ink application in the skin with your favourite machine and needle set up. Many artists use distilled water for creating black and grey tattoos, as it allows them to create a multitude of shades from a limited selection of inks. This means that the blending and shading can be much more gradual and seamless, creating a better overall effect in the tattoo design.

Distilled water can be very useful within the tattoo industry. It is ideal for rejuvenating the dried out or thicker inks, as many of these are not compatible with different tattoo machines and needle set ups. Some more modern tattoo machines are better used with more fluid inks, whereas some more traditional set ups are ideal with the thicker, highly pigmented old style of ink production. By adding small amounts of distilled water to these inks, they are then suitable for use. By having a more fluid consistency, the ink is able to flow through the tubes and machine more easily, as well as being easier to work into the skin's surface. The distilled water technique of diluting tattoo ink can be very useful when producing the varying of shades of black and grey. By adding small amounts of distilled water to the mixture of inks, it can increase the fluidity of the ink shades and make them easier to apply into the skin's surface. Using distilled water to rinse off debris and cleaning the tattoo while it is in progress can also be a better solution than using regular water which is not sterile in the same way that distilled water is.
