Starbrite Tattoo INKS

We are the real creators of Starbrite Colors and have been making and distributing it since 1995. So if you do some homework, you will know that others have not been honest and our inks are not the same as the knockoffs!


Michael Nicholson is the only person that invented the ink known to last a lifetime with it’s forever bold colors & changed the way artists worldwide could show off their work and be proud of the pigment that didn’t quit after a lifetime. After a name contest here at the shop in 1995, Cindy Cote (Office Manager still here today) came up with the name Starbrite and Mike changed it to wholesale the ink line world wide from Papillon Ink to Starbrite Colors! This guy had Master degrees in art and was a tattoo artist and inventor. After his death in 1998, his wife Meredith continued his legendary ink manufacturing and Coil machines but was betrayed by greedy employees all related to each other. Now owner (Katrina Basile) has taken on the shop from Meredith and demanded we stay the course and continue this legend ink made by a real artist and not change any ingredients to keep it original. In 2018 we started a new mixing process that eliminates the separation and gives you a more consistent color flow without changing any of Papillons Original Ingredients!
The contract below has been here in our shop since the day it was signed and dated! The contents may clarify some of the confusion our customers are having or hearing but this is our truth and no one has argued it’s authenticity! So we can’t share most of the written documented material with you until our legal team give us the green light but I promise you will see it and then understand who is the real Starbrite Colors!

SAY IT FORGET IT / WRITE IT REGRET IT!
It appears they signed a contract in 2004 to distribute the only real Starbrite / StarBrite after not receiving it soon after and thought it was denied and were never given permission to call it theirs! Applied for the trademark in his own name while an Employee of this company in 2003 without telling the owner & after not receiving it soon after thought it was denied so he asked Meredith to draw this distributor agreement up. Disgraced a great legend artist and the industry by telling you all nothing but lies! We have the proof (Coming soon) and they are not in any position to help themselves any longer. Mrs. Papillon (Widow) asked us to keep her husband’s legend alive and fight for his creations and what he alone invented. We agreed!
To this day we have not seen anything that tells anyone different. But they keep adding to the story of lies posting in magazines and social media worldwide! Insulting a dead legend Mr.Michael Nicholson’s pride and hard work to keep it true to you! This is what they don’t want you to see and now we will start getting the threats we had gotten when we took over the shop in 2015. Trying to keep our freedom of speech locked up but that's not happening!
SAY IT FORGET IT / WRITE IT REGRET IT!
You be the Judge!
So if your Starbrite Inks are not made by Papillon Ink, It’s not the original recipe ink that is bold and truly vibrant that is made by (TATTOO ARTIST) Mikes recipe & standards today!

Starbrite Tattoo INKS

Papillon Pigments is what Starbrite Colors was called before the name was given to this awesome pigment line by owner / founder Michael Nicholson in 1994!
I personally designed this ink line after hearing a lot of complaints of other brands drying up and solidifying half way through the bottles use! Working alongside a chemist and friend we designed this brand a little thicker with tall bottles to not dry up and make sure the artist gets every last drop of eye popping color packing goodness!
NO plastics or other harmful ingredients in this clean sterilized ink that artists are bragging about and getting their money worth from every bottle and great saturation! WE GUARANTEE IT

ORGANIC / VEGAN FRIENDLY
STERILIZED WITH (99.9% ALCOHOL )
STAINLESS MIXING BALLS
SEALED BOTTLES
BOLD COLORS
NO DRYING UP GUARANTEE
PAPILLON APPROVED!

Sitting here in my office since 2004?
Why would you agree to distribute a product that you have claimed to be your own since 1992 in 2004?
It looks kind a like dishonesty-to the world of artists , but then again who am I to judge? Wait for the next fact coming soon! #tattooing-facts #therealstarbritecolors
