liner should be set between 7-8 and shader 8-9 from what I have read and from the tutorials that I have watched

Hi Battlemedic

From what ive read on the course work from here is that the liner is set between 7 - 8 volts and a gap of a dime or a 5p british money and set between 8 - 10 for shading with a gap of a nickel or a 2p coin british money . from how i understand it and it works well for me.

Cheers
Ron

The volts ALWAYS depends on the machine, and also the setup that you have. You will soon be able to hear the difference between running well and not!

Practice and practice some more, and tou will start to see perfect lines.

my shader runs higher voltage than my linner look for the figure 8 on the armature bar nipple as for small circles i normally run anti clockwise circles count to 5 so your not over working the skin

skin takes it better anticlockwise lifts the skin better for colouring.
same as linning we work a line down in one stroke not up.
and when tattooing move from left to right.
you need the course ourfella pay by paypal and its then a direct download you can print all the course out soem really good stuff in there

My shader runs at a lot lower voltage than my liner, and i dont get what you mean by anticlockwise. It doesnt really matter which way you go. Same as the left to right business.

A little tip for getting a brilliant continuous soft hum from your shader.

When positioning the elastic bands on the needle bar, slide the bands down as far to the bottom before fouling the back stem. Then turn the volts down as low as possible, so when your thumb is on the grommet, the speed slows slightly.

You will find you get a lovely smooth shade effect with diluted black.
Try it.
