The Art Of Inking And Cosmetics

In today's society, the color wheel has been narrowed down from a variety of shades to just two. It is crucial that each person finds their perfect shade, but what if you don't know where to start?

How to get started with your own cosmetic ink work

The art of cosmetic ink artistry has been around for centuries, but it’s only recently that tattoo artists and makeup artists have started to use this art form to create unique looks for their clients. If you’re interested in starting your own cosmetic ink work, there are a few things you need to know first.

  1. Firstly, you’ll need some basic supplies. You’ll need a pen or a brush, ink, a container for your ink, and a paper towel or cloth to clean your tools. You can purchase these supplies at any art supply store or online.
  2. Next, you’ll need to learn how to mix your ink. You can do this by mixing different colors together or by using certain solvents to change the properties of the ink. 
  3. Once you have the basics down, it’s time to get creative! Start by drawing designs on paper plates or pots with your brush or pen. 

If you're looking to add some flair to your traditional inking techniques, here are five tips to get you started.

1. Use color to your advantage. Bright pops of color can really stand out against a black and white background and can help break up the monotony of a traditional tattoo.

2. Think outside the box. Don't be afraid to experiment with different textures and patterns in your inks. 

3. Pay attention to detail. Make sure that every line and shadow is perfectly placed for a truly professional look.

4. Take your time. Inking is an intricate process that requires plenty of practice to get good at it.

5. Stay hydrated! Ink is a water-based medium.


With the ever-growing popularity of tattoos and cosmetic tattoos, it's important for artists to have a good understanding of how these three types of ink work. So if you're thinking about getting inked or painting up your face, make sure you read this article first!
