In Japanese tattooing, there is use of a lot of water. It was necessary to blend a turquoise tattoo ink colour to create three-dimensional Japanese waves. When mixed with blues, this colour creates a special shade, which can only be achieved with this turquoise as a base. This colour is used by Japanese masters to highlight dragons as additional dimensions. This colour likes to be cut especially with white.
All dragon colours can be seen on Mario Barth's back and are designed and specially mixed by Horitoshi I.
