In development since 2013 and now available through Barber DTS, Nocturnal Ink is set to be a bit of a game changer in the tattooing industry. Brought to life by Franco Vescovi and Jack Rudy, these artists have collaborated to devise a great quality ink only created for use when tattooing.
Fully organic in nature
Made up of just three ingredients – organic pigment, sterilised water and ethyl alcohol, Nocturnal Ink has been created to be fully organic in nature and contain absolutely no type of unnecessary chemical solvents which can be harsh on the skin. Offering darker smoother shades Nocturnal Ink works to offer more depth and clarity but also keeps the same fluidity as a more traditional ink.
With six different shades the Nocturnal Ink range caters towards tattoo artists looking for something extra special when creating blackwork, grey shading and highlighting work with bright white accents.
A commitment to excellence
Each of the individual six shades are available separately in 1oz, 2oz, 4oz and 8oz sizes. Super Black is designed to give high contrast blackwork that extra pop whilst the specific Lining and Shading ink works to help tattooists get an extra crisp and accurate finish on intricate line work.
The three ‘West Coast Blends’ offer grey washes in dark, medium and light which are also available as a set in the 1oz, 2oz and 4oz sizes whilst the Shine White ink has a dazzling amount of white pigment that radiates with a unique pearlised sheen.
If you’re looking to get the full Nocturnal Ink experience, then all six inks come as a set in the 1oz, 2oz and 4oz sizes. Real attention to detail has been paid when developing these inks which comes across in the stunning artwork on the bottles which reflects these legendary tattoo artists commitment to excellence.

"This is a brilliant set of inks and should be in every artist’s ink set. It blends nice and naturally to give you really smooth tones and the fact that they smooth out without even having to try to make them do so is pretty amazing. I particularly like the Nocturnal Super Black Ink. It’s very dark and easy to work with. It goes in smoothly first time and you can dab it off easily which you can’t do with other brands. It doesn’t smear which is also great."
