Eternal Ink: Swatch Library & Swatch Map- Use Eternal Ink colors in ANY digital art software. 

With our Digital Palettes system, you can prepare your tattoo artwork with the exact colors you have in your tattoo ink collection. We've painstakingly scanned each color to ensure color accuracy. The colors are neatly organized by hue and value in BOTH a swatch library file AND our swatch map image.

The Swatch Map (.png image) will load into virtually any graphics software for easy color selection. This is great news for Procreate users who are unable to use .aco swatch files.

Not so useful

It would be better if it comes as a real pallet of colors and not just an image...


It was a big kick to the side when I purchased this product. I had the idea that it would just go into my pallets like the brushes I bought. To just has a picture you save to take the colors from is a joke. I highly suggest to just give away the pallet reference page to all customers that purchased the brush sets. I totally get it, you just made extra money off some sucker, so why change it. Just know ( like it matters ) I was let down. The brushes are great, I use them daily. But if I could return the pallet I would.


I love it now I know what colors I have to use n know my pallette better

Great idea but poorly executed in procreate

I love the palette but it needs a transparent version with the names in black font. This way you can easily mask it over your existing image to compare different variations and choose the best color. It’s also possible to export color palettes as .swatch files in the newest version of procreate. I would think for the price it would include the preformatted swatch files. Users now have to eyedrop and save each color manually which is tedious and time consuming. If you just did this one time and added the swatch files to the download repository it would be way. These are fairly easy improvements to make and I believe they would greatly enhance the user experience.

Eternal ink palette

Bit awkward to use, but a great useful tool to have when creating tattoo designs.
