Hey my names matt I’m 21
Over recent months I’ve decided I want to become a tattoo artist. It’s sonething I’m very passionate about current have far too many tattooos to count and planning on begging head to toe.

I’ve done a few dummy runs on my leg with mild success, lining is super simple for me I feel I’m confident on my lines with not much error but I really cannot get my head around shading.... the ink just isn’t playing ball it’s like I run over the area and once it’s wiped all the ink is gone... any ideas on this?

needles go in...ink goes in...needles come out...ink stays in...

either you are not using needles...or the ink isn't going in.

there are a myriad or reasons why that may not be happening but my guess is you have your machine set too low to penetrate because you don't want to tear up your leg. Hard to say from Texas with no pictures to look at :)
