If you go over it within 5 or 6 weeks, it will hurt like hell. I usually say around 8 weeks to redo a tribal. Black always seems crap at taking first time, and would love to know why from a pro.

Also, i always find that mags dont give a "bold, solid" colour they tend to be a more "faint" fill.

I have the problem the other way round, Done a few tats using 14RS and they come out patchy on myself. Although had no problems on tats Ive done for people. Used a 5MAG the other night and was really impressed on the solid fill and how quick it was. Hurt like hell and quite a bit of bleeding (which I didnt get with the round) BTW did it on my knee!!

I personally find mags good for shading and round for solid colour. But another mate of mine only uses mags and gets great solid or shading with them.
