Due to variance in the display of colors across different monitor types, color swatches may not be an exact match to actual product. Use for reference only. From the old, faded, hand-made style to modern recreations of tribal bands to historical designs, Skin Illustrator's Tattoo Classics can easily produce the aged effect you desire. The only variable is your application technique. Contains both black and green colors to make it look modern, make it look classic, make it look like it's been there forever! The palette colors must be activated with 99% alcohol, such as Telesis ISO GEL, Skin Illustrator Slow Activator, or REEL Creations 99% Alcohol Developer, to apply and requires very little touch up other than an occasional powdering. Removal is easy with PPI's Telesis Super Solv, or Telesis Makeup Remover. DO NOT USE 70% alcohol, MEK, acetone, water, or any other solvent, as you will not achieve maximum color saturation. To use, simply saturate the top surface of the color well with the 99%, then work a brush or swab on the top of the surface until it liquefies. It then can be applied with a brush, sponge, swab or even a disposable mascara wand.
