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!

Would agree

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