Kuro Sumi Lining Black Tattoo Ink is ideal for all line work. The rich black is easy to blend making it a favourite for outlines, especially in Asian tattoo styles. It absorbs smoothly and evenly into the skin for straight lines that heal with a flawless finish. Kuro Sumi inks are based on formulas that have been passed down for centuries by Japanese artists. The brand itself is named after the famous ancient Yayoi Kuro Sumi Tangnuni warriors of Japan. These warriors had distinctive marks on their bodies, much like tattoo artists leave on their clients today. The ink is of the highest quality and completely vegan.
