What Jane says
❤️ Tattoo your art
Maybe it’s the mermaid in me, but I have always been drawn to amazing tattoos. What has stopped me getting some is the permanency as I am a woman that loves change.
So it gives me a real thrill to finally reveal my newest ink collection. I can get my tattoo kicks in my art and revel in the permanency!
- Load tattoo inks into all types of fountain pens, spray bottles and markers.
- Use with Dip pens and brushes.
- Draw, paint, scribble, doodle, journal and spray with it!
You can dilute all the Tattoo Inks with water before they dry for lighter washes, or layer for more intense colour.

Water Resistant | What does that mean?
Technically, as a fountain pen ink, these are classified as water-proof, because a fountain pen lays down such a fine amount of ink.
However, as artists, we will use these inks in many other ways, and denser application can cause the nano-particles in the pigments to settle differently, and there can be some wash-out with enough if enough water is added. Each colours will react differently on various papers and conditions. Knowing that, you can use these properties to your artistic advantage!
Water-Proof vs Water Resistant
The Tattoo Inks all have different water-resistance qualities.
In the chart below i sprayed each colour so we have an intense application of each ink, then added some lines with the ink in a Waterbrush, then some very fine Fountain pen lines.
I let the ink dry, and then added water with a paintbrush over each swatch and let it sit there until it was dry.
I have a summary of the results below the chart.
In short, Tattoo inks in fountain pens, ie very fine application, has no shift.
On the more dense applications ( the sprays and waterbrush lines, there is a variety of effects.
- Neon Pink : no shift
- Carbon Black: dense areas can have very light shift,
- Shadow: No shift
- Bordello magenta: dense areas can have very light shift
- Treasure Map sepia : this has the most shift, but it is very attractive!
- Shanty blue : no shift
- Sharkbite red: no shift
- Mutiny purple: no shift
- Gangplank Orange: no shift
- Tortuga light green: no shift
- Plunder yellow : dense areas shift
- Sea Legs deep green: no shift
Fountain pen friendly. | what does that mean?
These inks are safe to use in fountain pens, but regular care and cleaning should be done, as pigment ink can be damaging if allowed to completely dry up inside the pen. To be safe, we recommend cleaning your pen every 4 to 6 weeks, or if you don’t plan on using the pen for a week or longer. To clean flush it with water.
If your pens with Tattoo inks have been standing for a while and appear dry, rinse the nib and wipe on a lint free cloth to remove any dry ink particles. The ink will flow freely again!
Please do not store the ink in direct sunlight or subject to extreme temperature changes.
