i recently switched to textured needles (5,7,9round) and jimmy whitlock rollomatic liner machine. i know its a far better quality machine than ive been using but im constantly bubbling lines and blowin shit out. can anyone help me out? i know this is a pretty vague description of whats up but should i switch back to nontextured liners? im runnin the liner normally at 7.5 on a lucky custom power supply (#ps10) i feel like a real shithead for having to ask but im lost

Hey Matt,
what do you mean,when you say "bubbling lines" ??
And by blowouts,do you mean the lines you are putting in the skin,are spreading out...if so, the blowouts are caused by the needles going into the skin over depth.The correct depth is 1.5 - 2mm.....(If i have understood this wrong,can you be more specific please.) if it's the ink spraying out of the tip to much,then just reduce the machine speed a little & make sure the elastic bands are tight....Also,don't overload the tip with ink,just dip without running the machine...Hope this helps.

Def stop using the needles if you weren't having this prob before! Bin them or send back! Could be faulty batch?

The difference is,the textured needles have a slight rough surface to hold onto the ink better........standard needles have a highly polished surface.

Yep you have a few things going on, if I am reading it correctly; new machine and new type of needles.

I would back track a little and only change one thing at a time - either old machine and new needles, or new machine and needle types you're used to.

Your new machine could be heavier, punchier, faster than your old machine.

If you want to persist with the new setup then try backing off on the power or working faster.

I understand that blow-outs (generally) are either incorrect depth, too great of needle angle, or stationary needle - which is why my thoughts are turning toward the machine.

Either way I would take a few steps back and change one thing at a time to isolate/resolve the issue.

Good luck!
