This tattoo ink color reflects the rich blue color shades of Japanese kimonos. It heals with a bluish-than-reddish touch and has been used by Japanese grandmasters to create the shadows of the underbelly and dark ridge of a dragon's back. When tattooed, the color tattoo ink goes in slightly darker and changes its hue from blackish-blue to a perfectly balanced blue (about 20% lighter as it appears).
All dragon colors on Mario Barth's back piece are designed and specially mixed by Horitoshi I.
