Ink Oil Tattoo Aftercare Products

Ink Oil, Tattoo Aftercare Products

Ink Oil is a business idea  that came to me like a shot out of the blue! I’d just got back to Bangkok after a trip to Bali on one of my digital nomad adventures. The inspiration hit me smack in the boat race! (cockney rhyming slang – face). You know? That lightbulb moment.

I‘m a tattooed guy and always use coconut oil as a tattoo aftercare product, but it’s messy and that was when it hit me? “Why don’t I develop a coconut based tattoo aftercare cream”? So I did.

I then had to think of a name that would work both as a .COM and as a company trading name for the brand! This was going to take a lot of due diligence, brain power and creative thinking to accomplish.

Sri Lanka – A Teardrop in the Indian Ocean

Sri Lanka has been a special place to me because of a lovely girlfriend back in 1987 in Brighton called Stella.  She was a 6th former at Roedean and her farther was the Cultural Attaché to the British ambassador of Sri Lanka.

She told me so much about this amazing island paradise that I was absolutely fixated with the place.  I eventually visited on several occasions. Older and wiser now, I  returned as a digital nomad & entrepreneur.

Bali Canggu & Ubud – Digital Nomad, Surfers Paradise & Yoga Heaven

The two places in Bali that I have visited are Canggu (pronounced Changoo) and Ubud. They both vary in digital nomad patronage! I would say that Canggu is very much more focused on the MacPacker digital nomad and Ubud more to the liking of the entrepreneur and professional digital nomad. Canggu being a younger surf orientated crowd and Ubud the Yoga loving variety.
Both share a laid-back trait and both with positive and ( a few) negative characteristics.

Indio Internet

It’s a cold start to 2018 here in Brighton but an exciting one for Indio Internet.
I have spent the last few months restructuring a business strategy from the current status as a web design and graphics service to specialising in web sites and a digital consultancy for Startups and digital nomad entrepreneurs.

Palm Tree Products

Palm Tree Products is the brainchild of my business partner in Ink oil Tanya Caso! It was through Tanya that I ended up going to Bangkok to work with AMZ Tracker back in 2015. I met Tanya via our mutual friend Naomi Bedford who I was a session drummer for. Tanya needed some web design done for her then fledgling business, we met up form there and I put together a couple of web sites for her.

It was at this time that Tanya told me all about selling on Amazon and the Amazing Selling Machine course she was doing! I was pretty sceptical at the time as I thought it was a bit pie in the sky but boy was I proved wrong
