For me Talens ink is the best black you can buy. Bit expensive but worth it.

I know this might sound a bit "off thread subject" but I'm asking as it is related. As stupid as it may sound, but do you use the same Black for outlining and filling a Tribal, Or two different Black? The only reason I'm asking is because I saw a black ink on a website and it says...

"Please Note: DO NOT outline with this ink."

So that left me scratching my head a bit.

Thanks

not off subject to me dude ;) you are correct you can use 1 type of black for lining then anther specificaly mixed for "filling" tho this is not nessiserray, i use this method i just personally get better results using this method, if i correct the "filling" ink has a much higher pigment concentration- that along with a tight grouping of needles pushing a high level of pigment into a real small spot isnt good hope this helps dude ;) bless

Oh I see, so bad idea to use on a line because of the higher level of pigment. If this is the case, (where a different ink is used for the fill) would the outline appear different from the fill? Or am I just thinking to much on it now :). Thanks for sorting that for me...

the outline wont appear any different ;) ,i dont think your thinking to much into its good you thinking and asking ;) im not sure about were your at in your journey but maybe help to you anyhow,,,, i use the biggest liner i can when i line out tribal, this makes it easier to get a fill up to the line, then i use either the biggest round shading group i can or mag2s to fill and still keep the technuice at small tight circles, u can turn the mags on there side also so 1 needle chasses another but be verrrrrry careful you can "slice" the skin verry easy hope thi help :D bless

very true on the "i use the biggest liner i can when i line out tribal, this makes it easier to get a fill up to the line"

as it doest matter iether as its a tribal and going to all filled in, also it tends to easyier to outline with a thicker grouping needle as to a smaller grouping if yourl a bit wobbly still.

thanks
