I know this might sound a bit "off thread subject" but I'm asking as it is related. As stupid as it may sound, but do you use the same Black for outlining and filling a Tribal, Or two different Black? The only reason I'm asking is because I saw a black ink on a website and it says...
"Please Note: DO NOT outline with this ink."
So that left me scratching my head a bit.
not off subject to me dude you are correct you can use 1 type of black for lining then anther specificaly mixed for "filling" tho this is not nessiserray, i use this method i just personally get better results using this method, if i correct the "filling" ink has a much higher pigment concentration- that along with a tight grouping of needles pushing a high level of pigment into a real small spot isnt good hope this helps dude bless
Oh I see, so bad idea to use on a line because of the higher level of pigment. If this is the case, (where a different ink is used for the fill) would the outline appear different from the fill? Or am I just thinking to much on it now . Thanks for sorting that for me...
very true on the "i use the biggest liner i can when i line out tribal, this makes it easier to get a fill up to the line"the outline wont appear any different ,i dont think your thinking to much into its good you thinking and asking im not sure about were your at in your journey but maybe help to you anyhow,,,, i use the biggest liner i can when i line out tribal, this makes it easier to get a fill up to the line, then i use either the biggest round shading group i can or mag2s to fill and still keep the technuice at small tight circles, u can turn the mags on there side also so 1 needle chasses another but be verrrrrry careful you can "slice" the skin verry easy hope thi help bless
