Default Holysmoke vs Silverback

Just wondering if anybody has used these two grey wash sets? Me personally I like how Silverback's greywash looks healed, I know it depends on the artists applying the ink but, ink has to play a slight role in greywash IMO, but then again I saw a dude at seaside NJ lastnight with greywash sleeve and it he told me it was Holysmoke greywash dude was a home scratcher he had artistic ability but his tattoo wasnt the greatest looking but the transitions of tones within the greywash was nice and smooth looking, I bit one of you allstar artist wouldve made it look way sicker> Holysmoke looked a bit darker which made the tattoo really pop, even if the tattoo was below par......HAs any "Professional" artist used these two ink sets? and whats the verdict on both?

I used both. Just for a fact that it's quicker. Although most of the time I end up adding or washing the pigments as I need it. Holy smoke is pretty consistent and they have a true shade meaning that there is a difference between pigments. They have 5 shades instead of 4 like other brands. It heals smooth.

Silverback heals good but I find myself having to darken the pigments or doing a second session after healing.

The thing with this systems is that you have to adapt to them. If your own mix works for you keep on doing it.

Tip:
Lately I've been mixing my own, dynamic with sparkling water. On my rinse cup I add 1/8 of Witch Hazel and then water. It works great, I give each cap a machine crank to activate the bubbles and last tattoo I did like that looked smoother than anything I tried before with very little redness.
