I AM INK – Second Generation Pigments


This color corresponds to the REACH guidelines, which apply from January 4th 2022 and will also be available after 2021.

The SECOND GENERATION of I AM INK® presents the revolutionary Silverwash series based on the FIRST GENERATION Sumi Inks.

The Silverwash series satisfies the needs of all artists with high demands in pigment quality and practical expertise, giving you endless new possibilities of effects and color depth.

The SECOND GENERATION focuses on a series of machine-mixed black-sumi / white mixtures, which are very easy to process and deliver optimal results. URBAN BLACK 7, the allrounder-black which was developed together with well-known tattoo artists from the field of lettering, is perfect for lines as well as shading.

Thanks to the choice of pigments, the SECOND GENERATION also supplies inks that are produced without carcinogenic substances such as PAHs or AAs. The highly developed formulation already makes it possible to comply with not only the current ResAP2008_1 but also the planned, very strict ECHA regulation.



Classic BnG is created using a series of dilutions from its parent black. Already the highlight with white no longer corresponds to a classic BnG.

Modern tattooists even go one step further and show what effects are already possible today. By adding white drop by drop to the black color, you can achieve different results with a perceived depth of color or opacity – the tattoos appear more plastic.

The problem: Starting with a greywash, where the lightest gradation is translucent, with a silverwash the lightest tone has to contain the largest proportion of white. If the tattoo artist mixes his silver wash himself, the probability of an unsatisfactory tattoo that has healed in patches is relatively high.

The Second Generation Silverwashes from I AM INK offers you a ready-made adaptation of their greywash gradations as silverwash. Mechanically stirred, the black/white mixtures achieve the best and most homogeneous mixtures, which are very easy to work with and deliver optimal results.

The Silverwashes are available in three grades:

  • Silver 1: The lightest Silver Tone corresponds to Sumi 1 in gradation
  • Silver 2: The medium silver tone corresponds to the sumi 2 in gradation
  • Silver 3: The darkest Silver Tone corresponds to Sumi 3 in gradation
