A good ink that goes in easy and stays bright is just the start. Creamy inks, a wide range of colors and consistent formulas take ink to another level. It turns possibilities into new realities, unleashes artists so they can focus on exploring new frontiers.
And it takes the guesswork out of tattooing. To push their work forward, artists need an ink that never fades, and that’s what we aim to create.
Each bottle of Intenze Ink contains the science and soul of tattoo. And that’s not just fancy marketing speak. We always have been, and always will be, artists. It’s the lens we see our work through. As artists, we set out to create a product that made us better. And as artists, we took a long look at where tattoo started as well as where it’s headed. From the original homemade ink Mario Barth created in his kitchen and tested on himself to the advanced formulas we make in our Clean Room today (which Mario still tests on himself), we understand that the same principles that worked for the artists that came first still hold true today.
Capturing that legacy, however, is only half of the story. Advancements in science and technology mean we can make an ink that actually performs better—under any condition and on any skin.
Science, plus soul. It isn’t a new formula. Tattoo artists have been finding new ways to push their craft from the start. But today, tattoo ink—for the most part—has become little more than a supply, something that artists merely use during the process. It’s mass produced, under-analyzed, and overlooked. It often contains harmful metals, and it’s diluted. We’re out to change all that.
The way we see it, ink is connected to potential. Always has been. Always will be. And the higher the quality of ink, the higher quality tattoos we can help artists (and ourselves) create. Sound too lofty? Absolutely. But achieving the unimaginable is why we come to work every day. Anything else is just white noise.
Artists should know what goes into their ink. The same goes for customers. Both deserve to work with, and use, a product that creates the best tattoos in the safest formulations possible.
That’s why we pour years of research, meticulous testing, and the latest technology into every bottle of Intenze ink. The result is a better, safer ink that lets artists and customers end up with tattoos they’re both proud of.
