Anonymous asked: Hey have you got any advice on shading?


Answer:

Lots and lots and lots of little dots. It gets rather annoying tbh. I tend to poke fast, but you don’t want to go outside your outline. Bigger needles get it done faster. Hope this helped! Happy poking!

Anonymous asked: Okay so I've read somewhere that you need to use a different needle for every tattoo but if I am doing to tattoos on the same person (but in different places) do I still need to get a new needle or can I use the same one? Sorry if thats confusing but thanks!!


Answer:

You will need to disinfect the equipment and area thoroughly with alcohol and or boiling or flame. Hope this helps. Happy Poking!

Anonymous asked: Ok so my tattoo is nearly a week old, it's starting to get small scabs. Will the scabs ruin the tattoo? How should I take care of this?


Answer:

The scabs is the tattoo healing, it’s perfectly normal, and won’t ruin the tattoo. Don’t pick the scabs, just lotion it a lot.

Anonymous asked: I don't know it was meant to be a small alien so I did the outline and some bits at bigger in places and I'm trying to even them out but it's really starting to hurt! It's just gone wonky and the lines aren't straight I mean I knew it wouldn't be perfect but it needs fixing!


Answer:

It sounds like you need to touch it up and make the lines thicker. Wait for it to heal (2 weeks) and try again! Hope this helps! Happy poking!

Anonymous asked: What's needle size should I use for the outline and what size for shading?


Answer:

I’m sorry I don’t have exact measurements;, but you generally want to use a larger needle for outlining and small for more detailed shading. Hope this helps! Happy poking!
