    I have been doing my own tattoos pinch and poke with caligrophy ink for years, but is there a way to get any other colors without buying actual tattoo ink. Calligraphy ink is cheap but only in black. Please only replies on how to do this not replies on Why I shouldn’t do this.

    My friend’s cousin made his own tattoo gun and spelled his name on his arm. (He ended up spelling it wrong! LOL) And he did this on his own and out of things around his house. So I know it was different than what a tattoo shop would use. So how is the ink they use in the shop different?
