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 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.
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.
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 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
