Suppliers are also Magicians - not only Tattoo Artists

In the interest of our customers and consumers we purchase samples of tattoo colourants and test these according to various regulations and laws. We run across a set of 7 tattoo colours being sold on the internet. According to the labels all 7 colours contain only 2 pigments. We investigated which pigments were being used: a blue and a white. We found this quite surprising, as a total of 7 colours were being made using just 2 pigments.

If anybody knows how you make a green, violet, red, yellow etc. using a blue and white, we would be very interested to hear from you.

Anothe thing we noticed was that all bottles have the same lot number. We find this very suspicious. As the labels are extremely similar to a well known brand we must assume these are fakes.
