So, unfortunately, we can no longer use it. Posti Cash on Delivery service still works in the same way as before, so if you want to pay for your order upon pickup, choose Posti for delivery method.

General information about the new REACH-compatible tattoo inks:
"Contains nickel. Can cause allergic reactions. Contains chromium (VI). Can cause allergic reactions."
This clause is and will be a very common mention in REACH-compatible tattoo and permanent makeup inks. The REACH Regulation states that this clause must be mentioned in the product info, if the content of nickel in the product is less than 0.0005% and the content of chromium is less than 0.00005%. Some manufacturers also print the text for safety reasons, even if no concentrations have even been observed, as many have had difficulty interpreting that law and its requirements.
There is no official certificate for inks issued by the authority in the EU. Authorities do not test inks on the market in advance. Manufacturers test their products themselves and guarantee their suitability. Manufacturers may provide their own evidence of compliance, such as certificates, Proof of compliance documents, and safety data sheets. We always include a link to the documentation provided by the manufacturer in the product descriptions.
As far as green and blue pigment are concerned, the situation is still difficult also with these new REACH compliant inks. In the light of current information, none of the tattoo and permanent makeup inks on the market containing the pigments blue 15: 3 and green 7 will no longer be allowed in 2023 when the extended time of the regulation for these specific pigments expires.
Added on 20th of January 2022
We have received the first batch of REACH compliant inks from World Famous Ink and Perma Blend and these are now available in our online store. The quantities received are much smaller in many colors than we have ordered, and the shipment did not yet include the full range of colors. The manufacturer has a lot of orders from distributors in the queue, so please be patient, we will try to get more inks in stock as soon as possible.
Kuron Sumis colors will most likely arrive in stock around next Thursday. The first shipment from Panthera Ink should arrive in stock next week as well.
Added on 14th of January 2022
We have received confirmations of World Famous Ink and Perma Blend shipments, these are expected to arrive next week Tuesday/Wednesday. We are also expecting shipment from Kuro Sumi to arrive Friday next week. A small amount of Lauro Paolini's black has just been added to the store. The next shipment from I AM INK is expected to arrive within about 2 weeks.
Added on 4th of January 2022
We are expecting more REACH compliant inks from manufacturers I AM INK, World Famous Ink, Kuro Sumi and few others to arrive in stock with in few weeks. Customers can order email notifications of the availability on these products.

An update regarding upcoming REACH compliant inks. We've added the new World Famous Ink and Perma Blend colors to the webshop. The first shipment of these colors should arrive in about two weeks. Not all shades listed will be included in the first shipment but a good selection nonetheless. Panthera Ink's latest estimate is that new inks would arrive in the last week of January and several other brands are also preparing new inks.
Thank you all for the past year and Happy New Year 2022!
Added on 22nd of December 2021
We have been able to raise the purchase limit for several REACH inks to two and for some three bottles per order. We just received shipments of IAM INK inks.
New REACH inks from World Famous Ink and Perma Blend are expected to arrive within 2-3 weeks. The color ranges are not yet perfect with these brands either, but there will be good set of shades available.
We have received inquiries as to whether the current and future blue and green colors of REACH inks are still compatible in 2023 (more in our news 24th of September 2021). At least to our knowledge, no manufacturer has yet produced these shades with new pigments, as no suitable alternative pigments are available. This should be taken into account when placing orders. We do not know the situation for all new products. Sure, it may also be possible that there will be more changes to the law, but time will tell the situation in 2023 for these completely banned pigments.
Added on 19th of December 2021
Eternal Ink just informed, that as part of their testing process, Eternal have been looking at their existing range, as well as any new pigments, and confirm that 11 colours from the existing range pass as compliant under the new EU regulations. These inks are:
Vintage Ink - Maxx Black Classic Lining
Neutral Gray 20%
Neutral Gray 40%
Neutral Gray 60%
Neutral Gray 80%
We have some of these products in stock and start now preparing the labelling accordingly to meet the requirements. Once this is done the products can be found from Tattoo Inks – EU REACH 2022 section from the web shop.
Added on 16th of December 2021
The availability of inks compatible with REACH remains a challenge. We are expecting inks from several manufacturers to meet the new regulation, but we have not received exact delivery dates. The inks currently available can now be found in the Tattoo Inks - EU REACH 2022 folder in the shop. These include Lauro Paolini, Quantum and I AM INK. More inks from these manufacturers are coming to our selection in the coming weeks. In addition, we expect inks from World Famous Ink and Panthera Ink to arrive soon. Many other manufacturers are also preparing new products. Previous inks can be found in the Tattoo Ink EU 2021 folder.
There are also inks in the EU REACH 2022 folder that are not yet available. Inks are there so that customers can add their email address to the availability notification, to receive notification as soon as the ink arrives in stock. Unfortunately, for the time being, we will have to limit the sale of new inks to one bottle per order due to very poor availability. In doing so, we aim to ensure that as many artists as possible receive inks. Unfortunately, we are also unable to accept pre-orders in this situation.
Because the new regulation requires the artist to provide their customer with ink information, we have created a REACH database in the store that contains information of the product label as a PDF file. This way, you do not need to give the bottles for anyone, but you can either print the file or give the customer a link or create a QR code from the link. Note! This database may lag a little behind, we can’t prepare documents until the products are here in our warehouse.
Of course, our customers outside the EU in countries not affected by the regulation will still be able to purchase and use the old colors after 4.1.2022. This has given us some inquiries. In other words, the REACH regulation only applies to EU countries, as well as to a few other countries that have transposed the same regulation into national law.

Attention Finnish customers! TUKES information on the new ink legislation can be found here:
And here's information on legislation on tattoo services and tattoo inks:
Added on 18th of November 2021
World Famous Ink has informed the new REACH compliant products will become available during second half of December 2021, so the schedule has delayed from the first estimation. Panthera Ink has confirmed REACH compliant inks are going to be ready by the end of December. Several other manufacturers have also announced that they are preparing new inks.
Note to our Finnish customers; TUKES has informed they will publish a bulletin to tattoo industry during this week 46 about the REACH 2022 regulation and its effects. When the bulletin is published, it should be found on TUKES 'homepage www.tukes.fi.
Added on 8th of October 2021
The first manufacturers to have already given a delivery time estimate for their new inks are I AM INK, World Famous Ink and Perma Blend. These manufacturers have informed they will provide REACH compliant inks and papers for those inks during November 2021.
The World Famous Ink REACH compliant color range will be called World Famous Limitless and will include all the most popular shades from the original series. The new colors will differ from the previous ones in both content and composition.
The full range of I AM INK colors is already REACH-compliant in content, but the packaging labels should become 2022 compliant during November.
We will announce additional information about other brands as soon as information is available from the manufacturers.
Added on 24th of September 2021
As you have probably already noticed, we are currently in the transitional period of the Tattoo-REACH, which will come into effect in EU on January 4th, 2022. You can find more information about this new legislation from link below:
This new regulation limits the use of certain ingredients, among other things including some pigments and preservatives that were previously allowed for use in production of tattoo inks. Some pigments will be banned completely (like blue 15 and green 7 which takes effect on January 2023) and for some incredients the allowed amounts will be dramatically reduced in tattoo and micropigmentation inks. Because of this, a large part of the currently known and used inks can no longer be sold, bought, used and stored as a tattoo or micropigmentation ink inside EU from January 4th, 2022.
Manufacturers are working on with alternatives for products no longer allowed in EU. We will inform customers immediately after we get list of products which will be available also in 2022 for tattoo and micropigmentation inks. Unfortunately, so far, we do not have sufficient information from manufacturers when these alternatives can be expected. Until then we try our best to keep our current product range of inks available for our customers as long as possible.
Manufacturers and wholesalers are working together to solve this problem for artists in Europe as quickly as possible. We are very sorry for inconvenience caused by all this.

About availability of products
-GLOVES: Unfortunately with some products availability issues continue. Manufacturers ’forecasts point to continuing problems with certain glove brands until next year. Such gloves are for example the ones specially designed for our industry, such as Ebony, Panthera and Semper Xpert. In some of the models, availability has improved a bit recently and we have increased the possibility to order gloves in slightly larger quantities since we have been able to grow stock levels.
- INKS: Some of the inks have had availability problems. Manufacturers are preparing for the new ink legislation in EU.
There is currently a transition to new legislation on tattoo and permanent pigmentation inks. The transition period ends in January 2022, before which the products should be brought into line with the new regulations. Ink manufacturers are currently working on the issue, schedules for new inks have not yet been obtained.
The use of some pigments will end and the pigments will be replaced with new pigments. There are certain blue and green pigments with no replacements available (yet) in accordance with the regulations. For those pigments an additional year has been granted for ink manufacturers (transition period ends in January 2023). Also in some colors, the shades may change because the amount of pigment in some products will be limited. Also there will be changes in product labels.
From the beginning of 2022, the artist will have an obligation to present to the client the INCI lists and warnings of inks they are using for the tattoo.
We will inform you more as soon as we receive more information from the manufacturers. Until then, we will try to keep the existing range as comprehensive as possible. Any colors that will be discontinued because of the new legislation can be used quite normally until the end of the transition period.

In meanwhile, the last possible date to ship to UK by DHL Express during this year is 30th of December and by DHL Economy 23th of December.
As it stands we should be able to ship normally to UK again starting from the 4th of January.

Disruptions in production chains caused by COVID-19 continue to cause availability issues and delays in shipments sent to us from manufacturers. The biggest problem at the moment is still the availability of disposable gloves and the rise in prices caused by poor availability. We have been able to compensate for the poor availability with our strong stock and even now we have gloves reasonably well in stock. The best availability has been in Semper gloves and they can be purchased from our store in slightly larger quantities than gloves from other brands.
In addition, the availability of Hustle Butter, for example, has been very poor since the spring, but we should get a big shipment of the product in a couple of weeks. Gojo’s hand soap and sanitizer packages will also finally return to the range in near future. Unfortunately, there are still no dispensers. Since the first time in 6 months we got new batch of Fusion Ink, so almost the entire range of colors is available again.
The following new products are coming to our selection in the coming days
- Cheyenne Sol Nova Unlimited 4.0

The availability of disposable gloves is gradually returning to normal in parts of our selection. Unfortunately, the price level is still high. We will receive large shipments of Semperquard’s Style Black glove soon, so it will be the first nitrile glove that can be ordered from our store in larger quantities. Next week we will receive Black Scorpion latex gloves as a novelty product.
Added on 20th of July 2020
The global increase in demand for disposable gloves caused by COVID-19 and the consequent availability problem in the product are likely to continue until the end of the year. As a result, our online store unfortunately has a limit on the number of purchases for those products. Maximum purchase quantities vary by glove brand and also by size. In other hygiene products, availability has generally returned to normal, but the prices of a few products have unfortunately been rising by manufacturers.
New products coming soon:

As many of our customers have already noticed we have had to set purchase quantity restrictions on some products. These products include some cleaning products, hand disinfectants and disposable gloves. Possible restrictions are mentioned in the product description.
Because of COVID-19 some product categories suffer from availability problems. By restricting ordering amounts we try to ensure the availability of those products as long as possible, try to treat our customers as equal as possible and try to avoid those products ending up in to resale. Restrictions may be coming to other products too than those mentioned before. For example many of the factories in China that used to produce different kinds of surface protection products now have changed their production lines to make face masks and respiratory protections. So far, our stock situation is good for these items and we are actively purchasing to maintain the situation. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the situation.

As you can see from the news the COVID-19 situation in Europe is worsening. Also in Finland our government has taken harder measures to control the spread of the virus. Some of our foreign customers have asked us if ordering from us is any longer possible as Finland has closed its borders.
The closing of the borders concerns people's free movement only, so it does not affect freight. We can still supply orders normally to Finland as well as to other countries. In some countries internal emergency actions ordered by authorities (such as curfew) might delay deliveries. There are major regional differences between countries.
Stay safe, stay healthy!

Because of coronavirus situation Posti has disabled all cash on delivery services from the packages delivered straight to the customer. This means cash on delivery is not available in Posti Express 14-, Posti Express 9- and Koti 21- packages.
Other changes caused by coronavirus are that we are at the moment out of stock with face masks. Also the great demand of hand disinfectants has led manufacturers to struggle with deliveries. Products, such as Desinfektol, are still available but might soon be out of stock for short period of time due to high demand. EasyCleaning –hand disinfectant will soon be sold out and at the moment it seems we will get more next time in June. Replacing products by other manufacturers are coming in stock during next week.
The restrictions in mobility of labour and goods in manufacturing countries have caused delays in both manufacturing process and deliveries. For now we have been able to keep the availability of main products but in case the situation changes we will inform our customers here in our news feed.
Here are some estimated arrival times for novelties and pre-order goods.

During monitoring project of tattoo and permanent inks, the supervising authority of Sweden has discovered defects in several ink batches. Inks from one of these batches were also in our stock. We will be contacting all customers who purchased ink from this batch from us directly today, but we also ask that you please check the production batch number in case you have this product in use. If you find any bottles of ink from this batch in your possession or are using it we ask you to stop using the ink and contact the supplier you bought the ink from so they can perform the product recall measures required.

The Posti strike has ended and parcels will start moving as usual and all operations will resume little by little. Some small delays may still be present during the aftermath of the strike in the coming days.
25th of November 2019
In addition to the Posti strike the other strikes started by other unions in support of this strike have a significant impact on the mobility of Posti parcels in Finland. Delays are generally about 1-2 business days with Posti Express parcels even in bigger cities. In less populated areas delays can be considerably longer. In basic Posti parcels, delays are long throughout the country because some of the pick-up points are down. We therefore recommend that you use Matkahuolto or DHL for domestic shipments.
With shipments to other countries, Express shipments (DHL and TNT / Fedex) operate normally, Economy shipments will take an extra 1-2 business days to arrive due to the strike. EMS shipments to Russia may be delayed by several business days.
7th of November 2019
According latest news there will be a large strike in Posti, company that takes care of Finnish postal services. The strike will mainly concern distribution of letters and newspapers, but most likely will delay package deliveries also. Delivery times may be extended because of this. As it stands the strike should not affect the delivery times of other companies providing logistic services. We highly recommend choosing Matkahuolto or DHL as delivery method for orders inside Finland. The strike does not affect DHL and TNT/Fedex deliveries sent abroad from Finland.
6th of November 2019
Effects of a possible Post and Logistics Union (PAU) strike on deliveries to Finland 11.11. - 24.11.
Posti delivery, handling and transportation will be on strike from November 11th to November 24th, unless agreement is reached with the employer in collective bargaining. During this time, we recommend using other shipping methods, such as Matkahuolto and DHL or TNT/FedEx.
It is advisable to prepare for a strike by ordering critical, important products before the strike begins (11.11.) and in larger quantities than usual. Replenishment orders during a strike should be made taking into account possible longer than usual multi-day delivery time.
If the collective action measures expand and the transport unions start subsidy strikes, delivery times for other delivery methods will also decline. In this case, we will do our best to arrange substitute delivery where possible.
We will get more detailed information on the actual extent of the strike on 7.11. and we'll update the information here at that point.

Changes to Matkahuolto services are coming at the turn of the month.
- Matkahuolto will change its Cash on Delivery policy, it will no longer be possible to choose Cash on Delivery as the payment method with Matkahuolto Express Parcel door-to-door delivery. Cash on Delivery payment continues to work normally with Matkahuolto Bus Parcels and Matkahuolto Near Parcels.
The Cash on Delivery service provided by Posti also remains unchanged, so COD payments can only be paid by card in door-to-door deliveries like before and with orders received from a Posti pick-up point in cash or by card.
- In the future, Matkahuolto's arrival notifications will only come via e-mail and text message, Matkahuolto will no longer call you before delivery.
The changes will take effect on April 1, 2019, but we will remove the ability to use Cash on Delivery payment from the affected delivery methods a couple of days ahead of time so that the orders sent before this will be delivered when the service is still unchanged.

Important notification concerning package freight during December: The resources of freight companies are overloaded due to great increase in package traffic during Christmas season, and therefore minor delays in shipments can occure.
In Finland small Posti and Matkahuolto pick-up points and Smart post parcel services are not available at all times, because of the storage problems. In cases like these Posti delivers the package to the nearest bigger pick-up point, and they have also set up new Pop-Up pick up points as well to manage the parcel traffic volumes. This can be the case with Matkahuolto also. During the season we recommend to choose delivery to the destination or to some bigger Matkahuolto and Posti offices, to avoid all inconvenience and delays.
We finally received TatSoul shipment, so Wrath Vortex and Nexus disposable tubes are again available!

- Bishop Fantom machines will arrive in about 7 days. Also these pre-orders can be then delivered.

We are about to take Klarna payment options in our payment selection. This feature has been our customers wish for a long time, as Klarna is easy to use for both private customers and companies also. We are still on testing period with Klarna, but customers are able to use it completely normally. Payment option with Klarna is invoice with 14 days net, of which we charge 1,8% billing fee. There are no other charges in this form of payment. There is also option to pay in installments. We do not charge anything from this option, but Klarna will charge installment fee according to valid price list of given time. Line of credit is 2000€ during this testing period, but after few months the credit limit will be raised up to 5000€. During testing period Klarna is available for our customers in Finland and Germany, and very soon also in Austria.
Another great reform in our webshop will happen in near future, when we will update in ePages Enterprice-version. This should improve the website performance significantly and we will be able to add some useful features for our customers use. Layout will be also updated but visual changes will happen later. For now we have decided to invest in performance and usability of which we have received some negative feedback from our clients. We believe this update will improve the webshop and make it easier to use. This will also allow other currencies to be used so that in future we can offer Klarna as payment option in countries like Sweden, Denmark and Norway.

Crazy machine deals in SALE folder under Helsinki Ink Leftover Crazy Deals -header!
Inkjecta news; because of great demand, the producer has had some difficulties to provide machines for the market fast enough. This is why they have decided to make new model of the popular Elite machine. New machine is made of carbon fiber and titanium, and that makes it even lighter and faster to produce. We will receive small patch of these new machines during next week. Differences compared to usual Elite model are; Titanium lock nut, carbon fiber frame and improved CAM. All other features and performance are the same. Elite Titan is more expensive to produce, but will be sold with the same price as Elite. This is possible as some of the Torsion drive bars, that are included in Elite version, are not included with Elite Titan version. We will get the normal Elite version in stock in future, but delivery time is long. The order we made in last October, will be in our stock in about June/July 2017.
We have had lots of queries about FK irons Xion, and it will be in stock in June. The producer will give global date of publication to the product, and it can be bought from us on the same day. More information about the product will be given as soon as it is provided by the producer.
Ink Machines Scorpion machine is coming, but the date of publication is still unknown.
