What would you like to do?
7 or 9 magnum or a 14 round for heavy filling such as tribal .......
You use size B. use a 7 to 9 mag
like the others
I prefer to use a 7 RL but on Ocasions i do use a 9RL
Yes. How else would they get pigment below your skin? They use needles, such as this 100 round premanufactured one. http://www.painfulpleasures.com/xcart/customer/product.php?…productid=3707&cat=268&page=1
Yes, you actually do the pricking with the needle and then you use ink to smear over it. But it won't last like a true tattoo would. Go to a professional to do it! Don't do it… yourself. You're only looking at disaster! True, but I got a tattoo in jail and used a sharpened staple. Used soot and shampoo as ink and still there 4 yrs later. But best to let a professional do it. please don't as they aren't sterile and your tattoo may get infected (best case scenario)
Of course you can!But why even take a chance as cheap as they are get some new ones.
It all depends what sized area you are coloring. Think of needles like paint brushes, different sizes do different things. Use this rationale to save you and your prospective …client a lot of time and frustration. This will also help you not do trauma to the skin, for if you try to color an area that needs a mag with a round shader, you will undoubtedly be chewing the skin up and making some nice hamburger.
I assume you're referring to a 5 Magnum needle configuration. 5 Mag's are used for shading and coloring or "filling in". It is a very versatile configuration that also allows …a lining ability it the machine is held at the proper angle. Basically, the configuration is 3 needles across the bottom and two needles stacked on top of those. We use them all of the time at our shop and they work well but will take some practice for someone new to the technique. Color with a small circular pattern to fill in areas.
A single needle is normally used for tattoo outlines.

You will want to set up no less than 3 machines for a portrait, but 4 would be better. You will set up a liner with a 3RL needle, and this will be used VERY little. The downfa…ll to many portraits is the use of too many hard lines, thereby making it look like a cartoon and not a photograph. You will use this liner for details such as eyelashes, hair strands, pores, etc. Next, you will set up a shader with fairly long stroke with an 18RS and this will be used for the majority of the smaller areas of shading and you'll do a lot of your sculpting with it. Next, set up a shader with long stroke with around a 15CM - 25CM, and you will use this for the majority of the large areas of fill and I find that they work well for backgrounds as well. In addition to this set up, I often use a liner with a 7RL for highlights and other small things. When doing black and gray portraits, you build from dark to light, and with color you build from light, to dark, and then back into light. Always remember to have a background to contrast the subject which should be lighter and a bit blurrier than the subject of the piece, thereby making the contrast all the more significant and adds to the three dimensional quality to the piece. And always, always, ALWAYS remeber your light source. This can literally make or break a good portrait.
