Colouring in Question

Discussion in 'Lining, Colouring & Shading' started by Pancho, 13 Jan 2011.

  1. Hi all, a newbie here, I've recently tattooed a scorpion on my leg,which i'm quite pleased with as it was my first I did myself. The question is what is the best type of needle to use for colouring? as it seemed to take me ages using 13Mag and 8 round, i thought i'd coloured in a lot untill i wiped it and found there was hardly anything there. Also whats the difference between a Liner and a Shader machine? I have two machines supplied with a kit I brought. I hope someone can help, and yes I will eventually upgrade. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the site,
    Can you post a picture of the tattoo, and we may be able to point you in the right direction as to why it may have taken a long time. 13 mag seems very big for a scorpion?

    Something like this should be done as a beginner with a 9 round shader. As you develop, maybe a 7 mag, but 13 mag is WAY too big. If you can become a premium member, you will find the info you need. Its worth it, believe me!
     
  5. Thanks for the reply. I'm planning on doing some tribal work above and around the scorpion eventually.

    Would agree

    Yes - definitely worth the money to upgrade. The manual is very clear and gives loads of info.
