Cheap ink ? ?

Postby kingmike74 » Fri Nov 20, 2009 7:07 am

So my mother has an Epson CX6400 and needs to refill the ink, what is the cheapest way to do this, and where to buy it?


I have bought compatible carts before, seems to work out but it takes 1 week shipping to get here. What about refilling myself, never tried it so not sure.

I thought this was going to be about you wanting to get a cheap tattoo. I was gonna say DON"T DO IT! :-o :-b

I have no help to offer on your ink cart. :-B

LOL, nice.

I do want a tat though, maybe something like the Declaration of Independence covering my entire back.

Yeah, but it would take about 10 shots of jack chased with 5 Coors to do it, so it might not happen

Haha, totally. :-b

I was gonna add, and this actually ties into the "Cheap Ink" title, that if you want to get a tattoo that big you could probably find someone to do it for very cheap. A lot of times artists will do big full back pieces for cheap because it adds to their portfolio so to speak.

Anyway, hope you get some info on your ink cart. :-B

Yeh, I know this dude about 30 miles from me that did a sun on the back of some chics neck fro free just for the advertisement. She has a buzzed head and man, you should see that tat, unreal!

Since I have no tats yet, I might just start with a simple arm one, something like a Ricky Williams portrait or something, lol.

I can recommend that you NOT use carrot ink, which refills cartidges and resells them. I tried it once and they did not work well at all.

I stopped buying inkjet printers for this very reason. Ink is expensive, I don't use a printer at home very much, the cartidges gum up, money wasted.
