Michal Wurszt on Why He Uses Xtreme Blacks & Whites as His Tattoo Inks of Choice

The Power of Extra Black and Super Black, and the Versatility of Xtreme White Shades

In the vibrant world of tattoos, artist Michal Wurszt has made a name for himself with his distinctive surrealistic and realistic style.

Renowned for his mastery of intricate designs and impeccable shading, Wurszt has recently shared his personal opinion on Xtreme Tattoo Ink, a brand he has been using and recommending for quite some time.

Key Facts

Artist: Michal Wurszt

Specialty: Surrealistic and realistic tattoo styles

Notable Inks: Black Magic Tattoo Ink by Xtreme Inks, Exo White, Lining White, Extra White

Location: Warsaw, Poland

Background: Art high school in Poland; tattooing since the age of 15

 

When it comes to black ink, Wurszt emphasizes the importance of achieving a deep, dark color that stands out even after the healing process.

Wurszt points tattoo enthusiasts in the direction of Exo Black by Xtreme Inks. According to Wurszt, Exo Black is the go-to choice when seeking an intense and rich shade. It ensures that the ink fully penetrates the skin, resulting in a bold and unmistakable black finish. This ink is perfect for creating dark shadows and outlines, delivering the depth required for a striking tattoo.

On the other hand, Black Magic offers a versatile alternative to Exo Black. While it may not possess the same level of intensity, Wurszt recommends using Black Magic when blending colors or darkening certain areas of a design.  The ink's subtler shade is particularly useful for achieving harmonious transitions between dark browns, reds, and blues.  Additionally, Wurszt notes that Black Magic can also serve as an excellent substitute when Exo Black is unavailable. With its cool undertones, Black Magic adds a unique touch to tattoos and appeals to those seeking a distinct aesthetic.

On Whites

When it comes to white ink, Wurszt's palette expands with three noteworthy shades from Xtreme Tattoo Ink: Exo White, Lining White, and Extra White

Exo White is his top choice for achieving a chalky white hue, ideal for highlighting and accentuating specific elements of a tattoo.  This shade lends a luminous quality to the design, ensuring that it stands out on the skin.

Lining White, on the other hand, is Wurszt's preferred option when blending other colors like pink or orange, or for creating lighter shades.  This versatile ink can also be used for outlining, particularly in tattoos designed to resemble stickers.  Its ability to seamlessly merge with different hues makes it an essential tool for artists aiming to achieve precise and intricate details.

As a replacement for Exo White, Wurszt recommends Extra White.  Although similar in tone, Extra Light possesses a softer quality, making it an excellent choice for filling in larger areas.  Its gentle touch ensures a smooth and uniform appearance, creating a visually stunning canvas for the artist's creativity to shine.

Parting Thoughts

In conclusion, Michal Wurszt's expertise and experience in the tattoo industry provide valuable insights into the world of Xtreme Tattoo Ink.  Where Exo Black is the best of darkening large areas, Black Magic offers artists the ability to achieve various levels of intensity, while the white ink shades—Exo White, Lining White, and Extra White—present a range of options for highlighting, blending, and creating captivating tattoos.  Wurszt's personal recommendations offer a valuable resource for both aspiring and established tattoo artists seeking to elevate their craft with high-quality inks.

In the world of tattoos, how often do we reflect upon the colors used, the intensity of the shades, and the artist's personal connection to the ink? Is the connection between the artist and the ink a silent symphony of creativity?
