When I first introduced Silverback Ink® "The Original" Grey Wash Series in 2005, there was no other grey wash "series" on the market. The truth is that I was making a grey wash series for consistent results in my own work for more than a few years.
My friend Rich who was working as the GM of a large North American tattoo supply company called me one day just to shoot the shit. He said "Hey! How's it goin'? What did you do today?" I replied that I was well and that I had spent the day (my day off) making needles and ink. He asked if I had ever considered selling my ink and I quickly replied with an adamant, "No".
Being the smart ass that he is, he reminded me that I was getting old and currently there was nothing like my ink available to other artists. He asked me to think about it and added that it would be "A feather in his cap to bring a new product like this to his boss", especially since he has seen it heal and age in his own skin for 8 years or more. "Just think about it", he said.
To make a long story short, I thought it over for a few weeks and as a favor to a friend, I decided to go for it!!
Silverback Ink® made its first public debut in January 2005 at the Body Art Expo in Pomona, CA. Armed with 19 sets of "The Original" Grey Wash Series and some pics on my cell phone of my work and my friends, I approached any artists at the show who had a booth. If there were into it, cool... $20 and a few minutes later, they had my ink in hand and I went on to the next. No one had ever heard of such a thing, so I limited myself to a few minutes to explain or move on. I sold out in less than 3 hours just walking around and speaking with my peers!!
The samples I sent to his company also received rave reviews! They placed an order for the first 100 sets of Silverback Ink® "The Original" Grey Wash Series.
12 years later, I'm sure my friend's suggestion was a good one... The rest is history.
