Is It Safe To Put Ashes In A Tattoo For A Memorial Tattoo?

Is it safe to put ashes in a tattoo for a memorial tattoo? At Bubblegum Ink ®, yes. Over 15 years and not one of our clients has every experienced an issue with an ashes tattoo done with us.

Being fortunate to be based near the Astra Zenica research and development HQ in Macclesfield Cheshire, when the first client, so many years ago, asked about us doing them an ashes tattoo, the research showed us that it wasnt a safe thing to do, due to the issues with heavy medicinal and elemental remnants and so much more other issues with ashes which is still ingrained into cremation ashes.

Some of the Astra Zenica research team, who were longstanding tattoo clients at the main studio, took the concept on of creating a safe way to do ashes tattoos and took it upon themselves to research and develop how to do them safely and remove all the associated issues with ashes tattoos. They took the project implementation under their wing and with the amazing technologies for both testing and research they had access to, they came back after 6 months with a set of protocols and custom machinery, tested to their very high standards, (which is to be expected by such a pharmaceutical behemoth) and we then had everything in place to give our clients a safe and beautiful tattoo, where both the respect and care for their loved ones ashes, was also side by side with the safety of doing the tattoo and an ashes tattoo that was safe from rejection and also heals exactly like a regular tattoo.

Finding The Right Commemorative Tattoo Artist

A standard tattoo artist stating that they can just place some ashes in the pot and mix them up is a recipe for disaster. Your body will reject the implantation of the foreign matter into your skin, as it is still contaminated, as well as the health and safety implications. That is if any of the ashes actually get into the tattoo, in the first place. The ashes will just sink to the bottom and as a tattoo artist always takes up the ink into the needles from the top to avoid getting near the bottom and hitting the bottom of the pot and blunting the needles, exactly where you loved one’s ashes would be, the tattoo needles would not be going anywhere near.

With us, the processed, cleaned, sterlized and inert ashes, are molecularly matched in size to the tattoo pigment molecule size, so when they are infused together, they match in perfect suspension and so the tattoo is perfect harmony of tattoo ink and ashes, so if you can see the tattoo, then your loved one is truly with you.

We also implement other techniques and protocols to make sure the tattoo heals exactly like a normal tattoo.

No one globally can match us for the quality and safety protocols we follow to make sure you get the perfect creamtion ashes tattoo. This is probably why we have over the years been approached by the likes of CNN and the BBC with requests for both interviews with us and our clients, as well as being featured on an ongoing basis in global newspapers for our dedicated work with ashes tattoos.

Tattooing with ashes: What Is Ash-Infused Ink?

As the director, the tattoo artist at Bubblegum Ink ®, will request (at no cost to you) a bottle of preformulated high quality tattoo ink, which has its viscosity matched, to create a standard tattoo ink viscosity when the ashes are infused into it. Too high flow to be used as standard tattoo ink on its own, but with the infusion of the ashes, the viscosity is matched to high quality standard tattoo inks found globally.

On the day of your appointment, as the tattoo ink creation has already been done, we take care of the ashes, reducing, molecular matching, cleaning, sterilizing etc and then put both of the components together to give your perfect ashes tattoo.

A common question is how much ashes does the client need to bring for their tattoo using cremation ashes on the day. We just need a small amount, for the best part a tablespoon will suffice and as stated any ashes we don’t use in the tattoo are always returned to you on the day, so we can make sure that we are always only working with your loved one’s ashes and that every aspect of your loved one you take back with you, either the returned excess or in the tattoo itself.

We know what we are working with and how special and cherished they are to you, so relax in the knowledge that we have years of experience in working with cremation ashes. If the thought of removing, separating or even touching the ashes is not something you’re looking forward to, don’t worry bring them all if you wish, we will take care of everything.

As stated before, on the day of your ashes tattoo, any ashes we don’t use in the process you get back.
