With a great palette of colours, these inks will make your job as an artist much easier, and make your tattoos really pop! Plus, all World Famous Ink colours are vegan-friendly and cruelty-free!

As well as individual bottles, we also stock complete sets from some of the world's best artists, including Damian Gorski, Jay Freestyle, Ilya Fom, A.D. Pancho, and more!

Thanks to the huge range of colours offered by World Famous Ink, you can be sure that there are a variety of tattoo inks that suit your preferred style of tattooing.

For those specialising in colour realism, World Famous Ink has released numerous artist signature sets featuring perfect hues to elevate your realistic landscapes and wildlife themes.

Check out the likes of Gorsky’s ‘Four Seasons’ ink sets (Sinful Spring, Retro Summer, Golden Harvest and Mad Winter), as well as Ilya Fom’s Animal Kingdom and Oleg Shepelenko’s Colour Realism sets for eye-catching tones.

If horror-themed tattoos are your forte, you can’t go wrong with the Blood Colour and Zombie ink sets by Maks Kornev, along with Big Joel’s Blood Works, Vincent Zattera’s Rotten Green, and Nuno Feio’s Graveyart.

To create lifelike skin tones, make sure to try Maks Kornev’s Pink Skintone and Michele Turco’s Colour Portrait sets, as well as the aforementioned Oleg Shepelenko’s Colour Realism ink set.

Although it can be used for natural-looking skin tones, the World Famous Ink Pink Ribbon set has been specially-developed in co-operation with Stacie-Race Weir and Samantha Rae for Areola Restorative Tattoos. Definitely consider Pink Ribbon colours if you’re creative realistic, life-long areola tattoos!

Traditional artists with oriental-inspired work should head to Master Mike’s Asian Colour set, as well as Hori Hui’s Taiwanese Ink set, for those vivid tones that will stand the test of time.

World Famous Ink partnered with Pro-Team member and Killer Ink sponsored artist Jay Freestyle to create his own set for watercolour work. The Jay Freestyle Watercolor Set is ideal for any artist who tattoos in a bright, watercolour style.

We also stock both colour and black and grey pastel colour sets from World Famous Ink. For black and grey fans, the A.D. Pancho Pastel Grey set is a great choice (used by the master himself!), while the World Famous Ink Pastel Colour Set contains the tattoo inks of choice for those wanting a colourful selection of pastel hues.

Complete sets aside, the range of standard colours from World Famous Ink is both plentiful and of a high-quality, perfect for a range of styles. And who could forget the aptly-named Legendary Outlining Black? It does exactly what it says on the bottle.

Hive Caps & Hive Cups

Hive Caps are an innovative, hexagonal-shaped ink cap piece for tattooing that are easy to set-up, stable and customisable.

The follow-up to these unique ink caps, Deep Hive Caps, offered artists the same great product, but with the ability to hold more ink within.

In our latest video, we run through the features of both Hive Caps and Deep Hive Caps, as well as the next offering from the brand, Hive Cups.

Hive Cups allow artists to keep their tattoo cartridges from rolling around and drying out thanks to their included support lids. They can also be used to rinse the cartridges when tattooing.

Watch our video below for the full overview on Hive Caps and Hive Cups!

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Chris Papadakis

Chris Papadakis is an incredible traditional tattooer and owner of Moth and Rose Tattoo in Athens, Greece. If you're into vibrant colours, bold lines and traditional themes, make sure to check out his work!

After spending his childhood painting and later graffitiing as a teen, Chris began tattooing in 2010, working at various studios in his home town of Athens for the next few years and learning his craft.

With three years of tattooing under his belt, Chris decided it was time to create his own space, leading to the birth of his own studio Moth and Rose Tattoo in Athens’ north-west city of Peristeri.

Today, Moth and Rose Tattoo is the home to fellow tattoo artists Manos 'Manu' Paterakis and Alex Fraser, as well as piercer Evi Filippou.

The one constant has always been the bright and bold traditional Americana tattoos from Chris Papadakis, which have managed to pick up a plethora of awards over the years at conventions throughout Europe and in the US.

Chris creates his clean and vibrant tattoos with the help of various supplies from Killer Ink, including Dynamic Ink, Eternal Ink, Solid Ink, Dermalize Pro, INK-EEZE Green Glide, Hustle Bubbles Deluxe, Tatsoul Disposable Tubes, Critical Tattoo power supplies, and DarkLab Gorilla Click Ergo Grips.

Range of Tattoo Gloves

We stock a great range of tattoo gloves at Killer Ink, including offerings from Unigloves, Piranha, Grippaz, and more.

Our range of gloves includes various colours, sizes, cuff lengths, textures, and materials, so make sure to read on to find out what we’ve got to offer!

Unigloves is one of the leading producers of gloves for the tattooing industry thanks to its high-quality offerings, variety of colours and materials, and the option of a longer cuff.

If you like your gloves a little longer, make sure to take a look at the Unigloves Long Cuff gloves, which offer even more protection against splattering ink or other fluids.

Although they offer gloves in an assortment of colours, Unigloves’ Select Black is perhaps the favourite choice of many tattoo artists, thanks to their textured high grip qualities, low protein content, and consistent manufacturing quality.

If you’re not able to wear latex gloves, Unigloves also offers nitrile gloves as part of its ‘Pearl’ range. If you or your customer has a latex allergy, or you just prefer wearing a different type of glove, make sure to check out Unigloves Pearl Nitrile gloves for an alternate solution.

Those looking for nitrile gloves should also consider Grippaz, which has developed patented non-slip gloves that offer enhanced grip and help to reduce hand fatigue and tendon stress.

Grippaz Nitrile Gloves are textured on both the inside and outside. The texture on the outside gives you greater control over your tattoo machine, while the texture inside keeps the gloves from sliding over your skin. This means that you can apply less pressure to your equipment, resulting in less hand fatigue.

Piranha Tattoo Supplies also produce high-quality latex and nitrile gloves that are known for their grip, strength and elasticity. These powder-free gloves are ideal for any procedures that require hand protection.

As always, if you’re unsure on which glove is the best fit for you, feel free to give us a call and we’ll be happy to help you find one that suits your tattooing preference.

Sponsored Artist of the Month – Hana Oni

Hana Oni is a British tattoo artist with a Japanese pop culture-inspired style that is a vibrant mash-up of pastel colours, anime stylings, and kawaii/kowai themes.

When she’s not at home, Hana, who goes by Shoujo Carnivore online, can be found working at Tenacious Tattoo studio in Sheffield, UK, alongside many talented artists.

Her love of Japanese pop culture is all too evident from her tattoos, with various pieces depicting anime characters, manga-influenced drawings, and even a twist on the work of horror mangaka Junji Ito.

Aside from tattooing, Hana is the creator of Pinku Kult, which she describes as “an exploration in to the depths of the kowai and kawaii.” Inspired by Japanese fashion, but adding a twisted edge, Hana has released her first clothing collection under the Pinku Kult moniker, called ‘BADEND.exe’.

Hana creates her eye-catching tattoos by using various supplies from Killer Ink Tattoo, including Hustle Butter Deluxe tattoo care, tattoo inks from World Famous Ink and Fusion Ink, KWADRON cartridges, and a Spektra Xion rotary tattoo machine.

Bavarian Custom Irons

Bavarian Custom Irons is well-known for its high-quality coil machines, foot pedals, cords, power supplies, and accessories.

Each and every product from Bavarian Custom Irons is made in Germany under the direction of Stefan Fischer, who has been hand-building machines since 2006.

Before the inception of Bavarian Custom Irons, Stefan was a tattoo artist in Bavaria, Germany who found that he wasn’t entirely happy with the machines that were on the market.

So, combining his training as an industrial mechanic with a desire for a top-quality tattoo machine, Stefan began to build his own coil machines specifically for his needs as an artist.

After only a few months, other artists recognised the quality of Stefan’s machines and wanted to try them out for themselves, leading Stefan to create Bavarian Custom Irons, the company we all know and love today.

Today Killer Ink Tattoo is a proud stockist of a range of tattoo machines, power supplies, footswitches, cords, and other accessories from Stefan Fischer and Bavarian Custom Irons.

All coil tattoo machines from Bavarian Custom Irons are hand-made using the finest materials and wound coils, ensuring that they are built to last.

Each and every machine comes with a lifetime guarantee on all parts, along with a certificate of authenticity, so artists can buy them with complete confidence.

Not only are the Bavarian Custom Irons machines incredibly good runners, they are also very easy on the eye, with iconic designs like the Antichrist, Knuckle, and Pineapple.

As with the machines, Bavarian Custom Irons’ Transformator 239 power supplies are built to the highest quality and come with a lifetime guarantee.

All Bavarian Custom Irons power supplies feature a frame made from solid aluminium and steel and have been brazed by the German brand’s master electrician.

The Bavarian Custom Irons foot switches are the perfect accompaniment to the Transformator 239 power supplies, and, as you might have guessed, also have a lifetime guarantee.

Not only do they feature eye-catching designs, the Bavarian Custom Irons foot pedals are completely made from metal, so no plastic anywhere!

Killer Ink Tattoo also stocks a range of other supplies from Bavarian Custom Irons, including clip/RCA cords, arm rests, and machine parts.
