Morrisons is a source of great piggy
New tatt on some fresh piggy.
Using a 5RL, 5RS for the tribal & a 7M for the flowers
I am also training on piggy , I have been using 5rl & 9rs
I did a large trible the other day and the 9rs seemed to be taking for ever so I changed to a 15 mag and as i had never used a mag before I did not know what to expect. but the mags just bounced of the piggy like a rubber ball
so I have lost a bit confidence with the mags and I have gone back to rounds
your work on the piig looks very good and clean (wish I could use the mags like you and keep the pig that clean)
keep up the good work.
i used to wrap pigskin around a bottle as it is a lot harder to do? and got me used to tattooing a not so flat surface all the same im thinking you are looking good !!Thanks.
With the mags maybe try a smaller size? or faster speed? & keep the skin really stretched. I find Pig skin to be like elastic sometimes & nothing seems to want to take!. They are great when they work & can colour large areas real quick.
As for keeping the skin that clean took a lot of green soap & kitchen roll
I will always use mags for large areas of block colour, I find them a lot quicker & easier to get the colour in. I also "try" & use them for adding shading. (not that I have a lot of experience with that or even do it well but....)
hey sl1pp,try using rounds for your shading,you get a lot more control,start light & darken up as necessary,they work great for flick shading.
