Panthera Light Sumy Shader ink, is a great ink for carrying out shade work. The ink is produced in Italy and uses a new form of technology to give it a deep, velvety black gloss, even after the tattoo has healed. This ink is on the lighter side however it can still be diluted to create a preferred grey wash colour if needs be. Another highlight associated with the ink is the fact that it has added protection in it against the sun.
