Hi all, When tattooing does the tip rest on the skin, because the manual says the needle depth should be 2mm?[/QUOTE

hi pancho,the tip does rest on the skin,but don't apply pressure,after a while it becomes second nature to just glide across the skin.And yes, the needle depth is 2mm.

If you read Reinventing the tattoo by Guy Aitchinson page 58 it contains good info on needle depth :thumbsup:
