Thanks mate,i had to do it in two sessions,she got quite sore first time so had to stop & it was only her second tat.....i lined it with a standard 3rl,& did the rest with a 7mag...over all it took around 5 hours,with lots of breaks,she was not very good with the pain bless her.

Nice work Mark, lines especially good considering using 3rl. What ink do you use, I have just bought some new eternal ink and it is very good for pastel colours.

Hi Mark
I have previously used Kashoku ink which came with my kit, but have started replacing with Eternal as I need to. They are really good and have a hugh range of colours. I have heared that ONE black is good so will give it a try. I have previously tried Talens, but not sure that it is genuine as it is not so good as Kashoku or Kumo Suri and everybody else rates it highly. I did buy it from Ebay and the label looks a bit dodgy so probably not genuine and it has a strange smell. I won't risk using it on real skin just in case. Barber and the tattoo shop are good on price for Eternal at present so maybe worth a look. At a recent local tattoo convention I noticed that the majority of artists were using Eternal followed by Intenze and Siver Back and ONE were the most popular blacks. I was also quite surprised to see Stigma rotary machines being used by several artists, especially for shading and blending. I digress as usual but really would recommend Eernal.
