A Brief Summary of the Company’s Story:

Intenze Tattoo Ink is one of the best, if not the best tattoo ink manufacturer in the world today. However, which we will get more into later, they do much more than ink manufacture today.
This incredible company and brand, is truly a story of legends. Mario Barth, its founder, tattooed for many years, before he started mixing his own inks in his kitchen. The reason for him starting to mix his own inks, was a quest for better quality and more innovation, in what can be done with tattoo ink.
Having become an accomplished artist in the 80’s Mario then mixed his first set of inks/colors, in 1987.
This happened, even before he opened his first own studio, that same year, where he would also sell his own inks.
Mario becomes more and more well known as a tattoo artist, throughout the late 80’s and early 90’s.

However, he kept working on his tattoo inks at the same time, gaining recognition for these for the first time, in 1995. Then, 2 years later, mario launches the industry’s first 19 colors set, of tattoo inks. But it is not until 2002, that IntenZe becomes an official company, manufacturing in the US. Ever since this modest beginning, Intenze has continued to push the boundaries of what can be done, and advocating for professionalism, safety and hygiene, in the tattoo industry and the inks. Today they have more colors than ever before, with over a hundred. They also sponsor many great artists around the world, such as Danny Negrete and Bob Tyrrell. All of this, while still keeping to Mario’s original vision.

The Goal of IntenZe:

The goal of Intenze, or perhaps it should rather be the motto the company seeks to always fulfill. Is about making sure that tattooing, remains an art-form and is about creating art on the skin. Not just making any old tattoo.
They accomplish this, through several different avenues.

First of all, through their amazing inks, which they both strive to make the safest and cleanest. But also some of the brightest, lasting and most vivid inks on the market. Wanting their inks, to enable artists to be innovative, and to be able to create whatever art they want, on the skin.
Another way in which they seek to fulfill their goals, is by recognizing and helping to improve great talents in the tattoo industry. Through sponsoring amazing artists around the world, both making sure their brand is represented by the best. But also to make sure, the industry lives up to their expectations when it comes to creating amazing art.
They want their inks, to enable any artist to create the best tattoos they possibly can.

They even created an art academy, where tattoo artists could go and learn more artistic techniques, to further improve their craft. It seems Intenze, wants to be their to help improve the tattoo industry as a whole, leading by example with their very safety focused yet high on quality inks. As well as pushing for artists to care more about hygiene and artistic prowess in combination, not sacrificing one for the other, which is an amazing goal!

Final comments and gallery:

So you are not only in safe hands if your artist uses Intenze inks, you might also be in the presence of one hell of an artist, especially if it is one of their Trailblazers. They are artists sponsored by Intenze, who are at the top of their game and among the very best. Counting legends (as mentioned earlier) like Danny Negrete and Bob Tyrrell among them, and many more.

So keep an eye out here on Mediazink, as you might be seeing reviews of some of the Trailblazers on our site in the future.
