    For tribal work, you will not really get a good fill with anything less than a 13 round shader, but for best results you are better using magnums. Start with a 9 to get the hang of it, but it fills the area much quicker, and a lot smoother.

    Using a 7RS will probably tear the skin up, as you will be going back over areas quite a few times. You will also find that it will scab quite a lot.

    Try the mags on yourself first, because the smoothness has a lot to do with the angle that the needles hit the skin.

    Buy the course while its on offer, as most of these types of questions are answered in the files.
