Empire Inks - 4 Stage Whitewash

$199.99 AUD

Empire's new whitewash system empowers artists to attain smoother gray tones with minimal effort.

Historically, tattooers would incorporate a small amount of white into their graywash, facilitating the creation of precise values without the necessity of layering.

Thanks to Empire Inks' Whitewash Set, you can expect reliable ink and pigment consistency, resulting in healing akin to a semi-opaque gray while permeating the skin effortlessly like traditional graywash.


"A milky, semi-opaque graywash that came about when I used to add a couple drops of white to my caps of graywash. I’ve always liked the look of a cool toned, semi-opaque gray in the skin. I like to use the whitewash for value and graywash for transparent shadows. The whitewash is intended for artists who use a slower hand movement approach. In my technique, I generally stretch the skin evenly and glide my needle backwards only, making sure my depth is consistent and my hand always glides as if it was on ice. With this method, I get a smooth milky gray with almost no signs of redness".
