About Our Pigments

-Frequently Asked Questions-

What makes our pigment better than our competition?

Our pigment development team includes a chemist with years of experience in the tattoo industry; a tattoo artist specializing in photo realism, a permanent cosmetic technician with a passion for color theory, and a plastic surgeon specializing on work with breast cancer patients. All this resulting in a superior and ever improving product. Our high color quality and a superior pigment load combined with light-fastness and durability result in less need of touch-ups and therefore less trauma on the skin. Pigment Retention = Customer Retention

What is the difference between tattoo ink and our pigments?

Our pigment is based on a high quality body tattoo ink formula which was then adapted for cosmetic application to be the safest on thin and sensitive skin susceptible to migration, as well as scared or radiated areas. Ph levels and sun exposure were also taken closely in consideration. Though U.S. doesn’t enforce rules on these products our pigment follows strict EU guidelines.

What is our pigment base?

Our pigments are water based. We excluded any unnecessary ingredients to eliminate undesirable allergic reactions and to produce the safest and most consistent application.

Is it dye or pigment?

It is a pigment. Dye, generally vegetable based, loses strength with water and pigment has better and more consistent longevity than dye.

Is it organic or non-organic?

Our pigments are organic based and synthetically modified.

Is it vegan?

Yes. Our pigment doesn’t contain any animal products nor has it been tested on animals. It contains no eggs, dairy, no animal derived ingredients like lanolin, collagen, carmine, gelatin, honey, albumen, bee wax etc.

Does it contain alcohol?

Our pigments do not contain alcohol. Alcohol was originally added to tattoo inks to prevent bacteria growth. Our products are made with sterile ingredients, in a sterile environment and go through additional sterilization process after being bottled, eliminating the need for alcohol.

Does it contain preservatives?

Our products contain biocidal agents following the strict EU regulations.

Is it sterile?

The manufacturing process is sterile. After the product has been bottled and sealed it goes through another round of sterilization to ensure no contaminants have made their way into the sealed bottles.

Will the color turn?

Our colors have outstanding healed results. They heal brighter and more true to color than any of our competitors. That being said, some of our pigments do contain iron oxides which have more of a natural tendency to gray over time. We recommend our users to get very familiar with and learn the products they are using, whether ours or any other. Iron oxide colors when used properly can produce beautiful and long lasting result.

-Spot Testing Recommendations-

While it is not required by law, Ever After Pigments strongly recommends that spot testing is conducted prior to full application of any of its pigments. Spot Testing along with obtaining a full medical history of your clients allergies may help to determine if they will have hypersensitivity, allergies or an adverse reaction to the pigment. However, because of the anatomy and physiology of human tissue it is impossible to be 100% sure that an allergic or adverse reaction will not occur. Allergies can develop instantly or over a long period of time. It is also suggested that you check with your liability insurance for further suggestions on Spot Testing and fully disclose the risk to your clients.

Spot Testing should be conducted in areas similar to where the procedure will take place.

  1. Clean the testing area with a quality hypoallergenic antiseptic and allow to dry.
  2. Apply a small amount of pigment to the testing area.
  3. Clean the area again and properly bandage when dry.
  4. Instruct the client on what to look for shall hypersensitive, allergy or adverse reaction occur.
  5. Within 24 hours if no inflammation or irritation is apparent it may be assumed that there is no hypersensitivity to the pigment. It is also suggested that if the medical history calls for it you check the area again after 7 days and up to as many as 60 days later. The epidermis can take 24 to 60 days to cycle cells completely and heal.
