just a general question with no one seems to be really answering. I usually line at 7.5 -8.1 voltage, but still confused on color packing. So should the color packing voltage be the same as my line voltage or will it better to run the machine a lil slower?

Depends on the machine, the stroke, and their skin.

I run mine around 9.8 to 10.4 but I also use a FK Irons so it may be a bit different. At 9.8 to 10.4, you better get the color in first pass or not even bother.

Slower voltage for your color packing is what i would advise. How less is up to your liking and experience.
Less skin trauma, and more time to fill than while lining.
Do a little area, then move to another, fill tiny areas one after the other.
The movement can vary from people to people, i'm into little circles.
I end by looking at less saturated places and it should be done.

Edit: I use a rotary (Cf Cybertrasher)
Peace,

really really depends on your machine, especially whether it's a coil or a rotary. For coils, I use a slow machine setup for shading/color and turn my voltage down to lower the needle force. Then that will vary based on needle configuration. On a coil the voltage controls the needle force so you'll have a different result changing voltage there than you would on a rotary.
