Hey Rob,
Really nice work mate,love the koi,brilliant piece of work....
One thing i noticed mate.....when colouring,make sure you work in small circles, you will get better coverage & blending,( i noticed all the needle marks are in straight lines)...keep up the good work.:clap:

Love the Koi really good job nice selection and use of colours. I was having the same trouble with pig skin, i find it better now if wash in warm water and scrub the skins with one of those sponge scourers then a apply dettol which was reccomended by a few on here.

I also ask the butcher (at Morrisons for uncut Pig skin) which if you get there early enough they should have.

Hope this helps and keep up the good work.

Well done Rob, they all look good. How do you manage to keep the rubber skins so clean?:clap:

keep clean

Hi patrick i use plenty of vaseline whilst tattooing which helps slightly but once finished i clean them off with sergical spirit:thumbsup: but don't do this during the outline as it washes your stencil away !!

If you are having probs getting the colour to go in on practice skin,just up the voltage a little bit...they are a lot tougher than real skin.
