Two types of black ink can be used for eyeliner tattoos. Carbon based or iron oxide based. Carbon based is only recommended for more experienced artists. The color looks darker and bolder yet there is a greater risk of color migration due to smaller molecule size. Iron oxide pigments, made up of larger particle size, tend to sit on the surface and have less risk of migration, but will fade faster.
To ensure that black stays true to color without turning blue under the skin, the color is pre-modified with orange to counter one's cool undertones. Our skin is a filter. What we see on top is not what we see once it sits below. Just like our blood is red but our veins appear blue or green. The color applied will be seen in combination with the skin's undertone once fully healed, therefore must be pre modified to stay true to color. Read more about color theory for permanent makeup here.
