  • Japanese Tattoo Ink - In wash paintings, as in calligraphy, artists usually grind their own ink stick (Japanese: sumi) over an ink stone to obtain ink, but prepared inks are also available.


  • Most ink sticks are made of either pine soot or oil soot combined with animal glue (Japanese: nikawa).


  • An artist puts a few drops of water on an ink stone and grinds the ink stick in a circular motion until a smooth, grey ink of the desired concentration is made.


  • Prepared inks are usually of much lower quality.


  • Sumi themselves are sometimes ornately decorated with landscapes or flowers in bas-relief and some are highlighted with gold.


  • Available bottle in 12 Oz
