Are the needles you are using good quality, or from the kit ?? i found the kit needles tend to be pretty crap.....and are you stretching the piggy enough ?? If there is not enough stretch,the needles will just bounce off.sounds like am making excuses but the skin was so tough! Most of the time the needles were bouncing off the surface. Kind of using random movements!!!
yea, the needles are just from the kit. Tbh I thought I'd just use them for practice anyway, but the skin was tough in places and wouldn't stretch at all and then really stretchy in others! Because it's just the skin - without much fat in places and no meat under it, it's a bit uneven to say the least. Can't wait to do some on real skin![/QUOTE
well if it's of any help,tattooing on real skin is sooooooo much easier than piggy skin.And when soaking piggy skin,to defrost it,don't have the water to hot....i find that it makes the skin tighten up to much.
