Hi,I use dettol.i wipe area with it normally leave it a little wetter put stencil on then place something heavy on top it.set up machines,inks etc then take item off stencil and remove stencil.i then pat stencil rub bit of vas on it then tattoo away hope this helps
i made my own stencil stuff with deoderant stick greensoap and aloe vera ...i wip pig down with alcohol then apply my stencil stuff wat\it 60 secs then apply stencil ....seems
to work nicely
the trick is to put the stencil on and wait for about half an hour then rub it off, it leaves a nice faint blue line but one that you can see, if you don't rub it off you will have a very strong line which you will see part off after you have lined it, that is if you are using the thicker, better quality practice skins, i just got five of them for £12 from ebay.
I think I'm also sitting with a problem where the STENCIL does not transfer as dark as the ink on the stencil...wipes away or fades either quicker after a few wipes.
Please anyone with some advice to get this nightmare away. (FYI, I'm from South Africa, do not have all the item you guys have in your countries)
Do you clean the pig skin with alcohol firsthi, right now im using pig skin and stencil stuff, have previously tried making transfer solution myself with deodorant, have tried two types of paper, and my stencil is still coming out really faint. lines are missing here and there which leaves me free-handing. any tips or solutions? i dont know what im doing wrong.
I always wash my pig skin with dish detergent first ,then dry and then wipe down with alcohol,you need to remove all the surface skin grease ,of course your husbands skin wouldn’t be a greasyno but i tried that and it came out a bit darker. i think its the pig skin because i did my first tattoo on my husband and the stencil came out perfect. must be the damn pig skin
