(piercing by Jim Sens at High Priestess Campus) has announced that this year, will be the year of PURPLE! (Ultra-Violet to be exact) We thought it would be a nice idea to share some information, and some possibilities on how you can use that information for your next jewelry or tattoo.

What is Pantone?

The Pantone Color Institute is a consulting service within Pantone that forecasts global color trends and advises companies on color in brand identity and product development, for the application and integration of color as a strategic asset.

Often times when a client is choosing new jewelry, the selection of colors we carry can be a little overwhelming. Being able to work with so many amazing, high quality jewelry companies that offer an extremely large selection of colors has always been a great service we are able to provide. With Pantone’s release of the ‘Pantone color of the year’ that selection may be just a little easier for you.

The color purple is a color that may hold more history than you think. As mentioned in the article by Pantone on their website, purple has been used in the past by some very influential people such as Prince, and Jimi Hendrix.
