Can you use apple barrel ink or paint for tattooing?

I am a biginner tattoo guy, I don’t have too much money to buy tattoo ink to practice. But then I when to Michel’s craft and art store and I came across a brand name Apple Barrel acrylic perminent paint and is waterbade and is high-quality paint for all purpose. So I bought it and try it on pork skin and it turns out pretty good and dark. That’s why I just wanted to ask if it can be use for tattooing.


I would say no. Save up your money and get real tattoo ink. Even thou it held up well in the pork skin there is no way of knowing how it would age and in addition, pork skin is not living…you don’t know how a living organism will react to such ink.
