A Tattoo Color Theory Toolkit featuring 247 Eternal Ink Colors | Procreate Compatible Gamut Masks Enable Confident Color Scheme Selection

Abbott Color Wheel: Digital Kit
The Abbott Color Wheel features scientifically measured samples of the complete line of color tattoo pigments from Eternal Ink (247 Colors). The colors have been carefully arranged by hue, value, and saturation to give the artist the most comprehensive view of tattoo pigment imaginable. By viewing the ACW through the attached "Gamut Masks", the artist can quickly visualize a range of color schemes to use in the tattoo or art project.
The Digital Layered File version of the Abbott Color Wheel allows us the opportunity to offer more gamut masks than what is available with the printed version. This file is for users of Adobe Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, and now Procreate. By opening the .psd file in one of these programs, you will be able to toggle on/off the visibility of each gamut mask and rotate the mask above the color wheel. Visualizing color schemes in this way is a very quick and intuitive process. Advanced users may choose to design their own gamut mask shapes to personalize their color palettes even more.
