What kind of pigment do we use?

ABOUT OLD GOLD

My name is Phil Holt and these are my personal powder pigments. Handmade by me personally and used by me professionally. I have been making and using my own hand mixed pigments since 1999. I have not, do not and will not use anything else in my tattooing. Working with them day in and day out I have come to hone in the exact consistency and flow that I like for my own use. It is my personal preference. Caught in the quest to prefect the imperfect process of tattooing, I make these pigments specifically for the way I tattoo. These same pigments are here available for other professionals to use. Let’s be wise and if you’re not a professional, please don’t tattoo. Please don’t jeopardize and entire industry because of your laziness. Be professional or explore hobby painting on the weekends. theres nothing wrong with that. I will only sell to professionals.

Old Gold pigments are made with: Powder pigment • Distilled water • Glycerin • Vodka

I stand by these pigments.

if you have any questions, feel free to contact me directly.

My hands by Christopher Onstott for Buddhadharma magazine summer issue 2015

I had a pleasant surprise to see my hands pictured in this summer’s issue of Buddhadharma magazine. Christopher Onstott took this photo while Maitripa College was preparing for HH visit and during our meditation class on emptiness. I am really happy my hands are making their way around the globe tattooed, scarred and with love. Thanks to whomever is responsibile. Cheerfully, M unnamed-4image.aspx
