I.I - Killer Silver Ink
This Tattoo Ink really developed by a tattoo artist for tattoo artists.
Product Safety Introduction
Killer Silver™ ink is made in the USA and manufactured under strict production standards using CAESAR's original formula, which he spent over a decade developing and extensively testing for the utmost safety and sterility. CAESAR’s first and most important requirement was to create the safest tattoo ink possible. As no long-term studies have ever been conducted on tattoo ink safety, common sense tells us that the secret is in the ingredients. If you use only FDA approved or pharmaceutical/food grade ingredients, then the final product has to be equally as safe as a pharmaceutical drug or any cosmetics.
KILLER SILVER continuously consults industry-leading chemists along with other specialists to keep current with trends and changes regarding the safety regulations of tattoo ink. The KILLER SILVER product was morally and ethically created with the overall health and safety of its users in mind, and KILLER SILVER strictly abides by the belief of having a clear conscious above profit!
Unfortunately, the tattoo industry has poor regulations in the United States. Therefore, KILLER SILVER went to Germany to have all of its products tested under the strictest health regulation in the world in regards the tattoo industry. KILLER SILVER ink has also been tested by CTL Laboratory (Chemical-Technology Laboratory), Bielefeld, Germany, for investigation of amines according to the valid German Legislation. The results showed that the KILLER SILVER products passed the strict test, and therefore were registered into the internationally approved database. Our company is a registered tattoo ink manufacturer in the United States that complies with the EU quality standards.
The complete Killer Silver “The se7en Deadly Shades” ink set features six precisely measured and premixed shades of black ink (and one white ink) in incrementally decreasing percentages of strength. This variance in shade allows artists to create dynamic gray-wash designs that stand out as striking works of art alone or mixed with colors.

I.III - Killer Silver Irradiation Sterility
Gamma radiation, also known as gamma rays, refers to electromagnetic radiation of extremely high frequencies. Characterized by deep penetration and low dose rates, gamma radiation effectively kills microorganisms throughout a product and its packaging with little temperature effect. Even high-density products such as pre-filled syringes can be processed and used with confidence. Because gamma rays are pure energy, they do not create residues, nor do they have sufficient energy to impart radioactivity. As soon as the delivered dose of radiation is verified, products may be released for shipment.
KILLER SILVER is contracted with a third party medical and pharmaceutical industry leading sterilization company who specializes in the use of state-of-the-art high-precision irradiators, or gamma rays. After each irradiation process, KILLER SILVER receives a certification verifying the success of the completed irradiation sterilization process. All KILLER SILVER Ink products undergo rigorous lab testing procedures for spore, Staphylococcus, Bacillus, Micrococcus, yeast, biological and fungal bioburdens, as well as sterility. No residuals, no radioactivity.
II.I - Killer Silver Packaging Materials
Killer Silver PP Twist-Tops
Polypropylene (PP), also known as polypropene, is a thermoplastic polymer used in a wide variety of applications including packaging and labeling, textiles (e.g., ropes, thermal underwear and carpets), stationery, plastic parts and reusable containers of various types, laboratory equipment, loudspeakers, automotive components, and polymer banknotes. An addition polymer made from the monomer propylene, it is rugged and unusually resistant to many chemical solvents, bases and acids.
Killer Silver PET Ink Bottles (containing the product)
Polyethylene terephthalate (sometimes written poly(ethylene terephthalate), commonly abbreviated PET, PETE, or the obsolete PETP or PET-P), is a thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in synthetic fibers; beverage, food and other liquid containers; thermoforming applications; and engineering resins often in combination with glass fiber. It is one of the most important raw materials used in man-made fibers.
PET material is most commonly used to make water bottles, other food packaging and medical packaging, therefore it is a non-injurious product. PET bottles will not release injurious product at 100C temperature.
Killer Silver Ink Bottle Induction Sealing
Induction sealing, otherwise known as cap sealing, is a non-contact method of heating a metallic disk to hermetically seal the top of plastic and glass containers. This sealing process takes place after the container has been filled and capped.
The closure is supplied to the bottler with foil liner already inserted. Although there are various liners to choose from, a typical induction liner is multi-layered. The top layer is a paper pulp that is generally spot-glued to the cap.

The next layer is wax that is used to bond a layer of aluminum foil to the pulp. The bottom layer is a polymer film laminated to the foil. After the cap or closure is applied, the container passes under an induction coil, which emits an oscillating electromagnetic field. As the container passes under the induction coil (sealing head) the conductive aluminum foil liner begins to heat. The heat melts the wax, which is absorbed into the pulp backing and releases the foil from the cap. The polymer film also heats and flows onto the lip of the container. When cooled, the polymer creates a bond with the container resulting in a hermetically sealed product. Neither the container nor its contents are affected, and this all happens in a matter of seconds.
