Fake Brand Inks Exists
 
I acutally responded to one of the threads here when one member was surprised to know that there are fake/ knock offs of well-known ink brands from China... This serves as reference to others who are not aware... Yes, they're made from China but it is very possible that these knock-offs might have already reached US and Euro... PLease review the products thoroughly on the attached link... There's more in eBay, just type the ink brands and use advance search to filter your search and pull up fake inks from China...

You can type Intenze, Starbrite and Kuro Sumi on eBay to see the knock-of inks...
I wonder if the company that produces the genuine ink products can do something regarding this issue... This is mainly the reason why I chose to buy and import inks from US regardless of the price and trouble in acquiring the stuff just to make sure that we get the genuine stuff...

If you have any evidence of knockoffs on Ebay it should be very easy to have thier accounts pulled. The problem is they just keep comming back under new accounts. Try buying from people with larger feed backs. It dosnt have to be a ridiculas ammount. Just enough to show theve been around awhile in good standing. STOP SUPPORTING THESE CREEPS.

Buying from the folks in the industry directly or through their representatives is a smart idea. Most tattoo artists producing ink/equipment are passionate about the art and if they're willing to mix pigment I say more power to them. That is a thankless job and takes away from the time tattooing...
