Its all in the course files mate.
But the answer is NO, its not too deep. Just keep to around the same depth as lining but go steady.

it all depends on if you ride the tube or work off the tips of the needles, i'v seen some artists with the needle sticking out about 5 or 6 mm but they only penetrate the skin about 1.5mm.

You would really benefit from becoming a member of this site, there is loads of info and all the questions you ask or are thinking of asking are in the down loadable book, well worth every penny in my opinion.
