Kuro Sumi - King Kong Black
Kuro Sumi are industry leaders in quality tattoo inks and these are used by thousands of tattoo artists around the world.
Kuro Sumi ink is named after the famous ancient Yayoi Kuro Sumi Tangnuni Warrior of Japan. These warriors were an elite force in Japanese history and are still honoured today. The warriors were recognised by their bold markings located under their jaw line and on their abdominal area.
These warriors left their mark in the same way that professional tattooists leave their mark on others every day.
