I had a client that got a tattoo above his knee going towards the upper thigh. The lining went well, but when I began to shade around his knee area there was resistance. I used a 7 Mag Shader needle, but it was almost like I couldn't drag the needle through the skin. I had to end up making this dotted motion to fill in the empty spaces. The upper thigh was fine, but when I got to that thick patch of skin it almost seemed IMPOSSIBLE to get the needle moving. Any suggestions?

You cant really tell anything wrong with the picture. But for some reason that needle didn't want to glide through the skin!

Some knees are thicker skinned, especially those belonging to people who work outside, maybe a little more voltage would have helped ??? But cant be sure, im just making an educated guess of what I would have tried. o_O
