Too deep and probably chewed up the skin.

Leave it for around 2 months, then go over it. Dont try it before, as it sounds like it is slightly scarred the tissue.

Dont worry, Ask anyone who is just starting out, it happens to everyone!

needles/power

I have the needles set so u just just feel tip on lining,and when depressing amatuer bar sticks out about 3mm.And power set 8.5 volts.IS THIS RIGHT.And on the shading same,only i turn up volts to 9.5 is this right.cheers for help sonic.

:confused: You should really consider buying the course mate. Im sure anyone on here will tell you that it spells out most of the things regarding your problems.
Turning up the volts is the wrong way to go about shading. Its the hit/stroke that requires attention, and 9.5 sounds too high, although this can vary depending on your machines.
