What voltage is recomended for a tattoo liner and shader?
Depends on what machines you're using and how they are set up. If you want to learn that bad, go get an apprenticeship by any means possible and don't be lazy. Online learning is not where or how you do it.
Most tattoo power supplys operate from 12.5 to 14 volts, there is no perfect voltage for all tattoo mechines, each artist uses what makes them comfortable, as a general rule shaders use less than a liner. All power supplys are adjustable , and with such a large selection of different brands of mechines,and coils, no single voltage will work for all artist.
Without knowing the specs of your power supply, I can't rightly say, but the tried and true tension test should give you an idea.
Until you have the skill to use a liner for coloring I would suggest you keep to the shader for coloring, you can dig holes in your client with a liner and that would not be a good idea. When using a shader for coloring use small circles to fill in the areas you want to color, ensure you have good skin tension and don't rush.
to do the outline on a tattoo you need a needle called a liner for instance you could use a 14 round liner. now for shading you need a shader which is another kind of needle now you can use a 14 round shader or a 14 flat mag shader that answer your question and an p.s you can get a needle any size they can go as small as 1 all the way up… Read More
I say a 3 liner followed by a 5to 9 round shader works well for me
Many factors might affect a person's decision for a tattoo machine. For example, the cost, the quality, the brand, and the shape should be taken into consideration. There are many kinds of tattoo machines such as the liner machine, the shader machine and so on.
The difference between the two machines is the gap of tension in regards to the armature bar to the frame as well the gap between the contact screw to the spring. For a liner, you will want there to be more tension with the bar and a little bit of give with the spring. For a shader, you will want there to be less tension with the bar and more with the spring. The age… Read More
Not that I wish to sound rude, but the answer is in the question. The term "shader" although mostly refers to graywashing, it is a term used interchangeably with coloring as well. The difference between the two is the gap of tension as well the gap of the the contact screw to the spring. In the instance of a shader, you want there to be roughly the width of a dime between the screw and… Read More
Depending on the tattoo, the artist will use a liner of 1-9 small needles, and a shader of 4-14 small needles. the needles only go in through the first layer of skin, approx 1/16 - 3/32 in. As for the pain, everyone is different.
22uf 8 wrap liner (probably too FAST), 33uf 8 or 10 wrap still fast but more steady power, and 47 uf 10 or 12 wrap color . slower harder hitting . remember 8 wrap is liner, 10 is liner /shader (set up like a liner) and 12 wraps 47uf is only for big mag set up.
A tattoo machine's speed is so very widely variable that an estimate would do no good. You could use a weak coil machine with a lot of spring tension on a low power source and it will go really slow. But say you use a double contact liner at high power and it goes fast. Even a single machine can be a slow shader or a fast liner. You'll never find a straight up answer… Read More
When you are tattooing you have to use the appropriate needle for the design you are doing. If your doing a big tattoo your probably going to use a 7 round liner if your doing more detailed work like in a faces lips etc you will probably be using a 1 round liner. It all depends on the tat, For shading if it is a small area you can just use the 7 round or… Read More
A three round liner or five round liner (3RL or 5RL) is the most common but it does depend on the look you are after and the overall effect it has on the tattoo, the colours involved, the shading in the colours if any etc. One liners are also available and used for super fine lines like in portrait eyelashes etc. For tribals and the like it won't matter too much but better with a… Read More
Set for liner short stroke and run about 6.5v don't need a lot of volts as not using a lot of needles. set the gap to 1.25mm this is done by depressing the armature bar down and screwing the contact screw until you get the 1.25mm gap between the tip of the contact screw and the front spring. dime= 1.25mm gap for liner set up nickel= 1.85mm gap for shading set up Set for shader… Read More
Really sharp and thin
By getting an apprenticeship and being taught to...
In both the instance of the liner and the shader, one generally sets the needles out about the width of a dime. You only want to go through about three of the seven layers of skin for the best results.
Well, when you do line work, your gap on the spring should be the thickness of a dime. And for shading, the thickness of a nickel. Of course, everyone does it different, but this is just for beginning. - This may be the answer you were looking for but to take the question literally I believe you are asking for the actual gauge of the spring stock. Simply put it is mostly up to your… Read More
That all depends what you are trying to do. A lot of basic tattoos will have the line work done first and then the fill (obviously). So, you would first start with a liner needle and then switch to either a Rounded Shader or a Mag Shader depending on what you are doing. In the case of portrait tattoos, the same rules apply to a degree, but portrait tattoos, when done well, will have VERY… Read More
They are for fine lines and detail that's in the tattoo you can also use this needle to do awhole tattoo for lines and shading without changing needles
If your doing a full color tattoo, meaning just one shade i usually use a round shader, if you want to do transaction from light to dark i use a flat mag. Sizes all depends on what your comfortable with, for a large piece or tribal i use a 25rmag and a 5rs for tighter space. for the tip i use the same liner to fill in. but just try and see what works best… Read More
Premium Irons cut back, never had any better then that liner in more then 12 years tattooing
07 needle grouping Round Liner so now its not a shading needle
Usually having permanant eye liner tattooed is a relatively easy procedure with few complications. As with any tattoo, there are some risks including infection and scarring.
The benefits of getting your regular eyebrows replaced with tattoo eyebrows include the consistent look from day to day and not having to draw in the eye liner every morning.
Do u mean what is a 3 round liner tattoo needle used for? The 3 represents how many needles total, and round means they are arranged in a circle as opposed to lined up beside one another, liner means it is used for making lines. A 3RL is most commonly used for tattooing very fine lines in small or very detailed tattoos or lettering.
Permanent eye liner is as permanent as getting a tattoo. It means that it will not rub off, smear or fade away. It can however be removed at a later date if required but will come at a hefty price.
A liner to get the solid lines and a round shader ir small mag to get the thicker parts. Im trying new things so im not too sure but tuning is key. Just stay away from scratchers on u tube, learn from eikons information which is professional info on machines by artists/builders not u tube know nothings like tattootraining
Yes, but only if your liner is a 5round or bigger. Make sure you don't overwork the area, and if it's a large area that needs to be filled, spare yourself and the "client" and use something more suited to fill.
You can if you need to, but I would not recommend doing this for a whole tattoo. Not that there is anything wrong with it per se, but you are taking at risk unneeded trauma to the skin with this configuration as opposed to using a nice tight Round Liner.
You'll need to know about springs and capacitors and have at least some knowledge of how a tattoo machine works - Firstly you will want a stiff front spring and a soft rear spring with a low angle of deflection on the armature bar. A liner should run fast but soft so as not to damage the skin as all the force of the machine is concentrated at the needle tip. You should also look… Read More
For the borders/lines you use a liner needle.It can be 3liner,5liner,8liner...It all depends on how thick line you need...
chances are your outline is done by a 5 or 7 liner (5 or 7 needles grouped tightly together) and your shading/color fill is done with a 7 mag or 14 mag depending on size of tattoo
if your looking for a good machine i only use machines from borg tattoo and infinite irons dave ritchie at tat matic makes some killer machines as well ive never had any probs with any of mine
Depends on the size and detail of the design. Personally I like the 03 - 07 round liners for most typical tattoo sizes. Sometimes even an 07 - 11 bugpin liner for sharper lines in more detailed designs.
Ocean liner? Truck/SUV cargo liner? Pond liner? Trash liner? Chimney liner? Pool liner? Helmet liner? Panty liner? Dirty one-liner?
In almost all instances, one uses a 3RL, or perhaps a 7RL. All depends on the artist and the size of the piece.
For the love of God...NO! If it is not tattoo "ink", which is a misnomer...it isn't actual ink, but pigment that as more akin to paint, but IS NOT PAINT, and you cannot use that either. The only thing other than actual tattoo ink that one can use would be India Ink, but this gives you poor results. Get real ink, and have a real artist do it.
a liner usually runs faster and delivers more of a punch. shaders run slower and back off easier because they make more passes over a single area of skin. these are, of course, really basic answers. there are more in depth reasons. consult your tattooist, and he/she can fill you in.
When you say a "pool liner" I am assuming you mean a vinyl liner as normally called a liner for short. If so then no, the liner cannot and should not be painted.
You should run your machine between anywhere from 4 - 6 Volts, but there are other variables that come into play when it comes to the smooth running of your machine. You will want to of course make sure that your armature bar/rear spring is properly adjusted for lining, make sure that there is clean contact with your front spring to the contact screw and sand the front spring with a metal grade sandpaper if… Read More
Overlap refers to just that... the liner overlaps the top of the pool. The other option is a hung liner, where the liner locks into a track..
Comment 1 Permanent makeup is most appropriately called Cosmetic Tattooing, it involves tattooing of pigments into the skin to simulate the appearance of makeup. A cosmetic tattoo is performed by a specially trained technician using a small micro-pigmentation pen at a more shallow level into the skin as opposed to the large coil machines that deliver pigments at a deeper skin level as used by a tattoo artist for body art tattoos. Common areas that… Read More
A salmon bin liner is a bin liner made out of salmon and has salmon in it
No the chemicals in the liner will kill the fish. you have to use pond liner.
by taking the liner away!
High concentrations of chlorine can and will destroy a vinyl liner.
a one liner is a joke that is short and to the point with no build up to the punch line
The Titanic was a luxury liner. The liner to my pool has split and it is now leaking water.
short stroke and run about 6.5v don't need a lot of volts as not using a lot of needles. set the gap to 1.25mm this is done by depressing the armature bar down and screwing the contact screw until you get the 1.25mm gap between the tip of the contact screw and the front spring. hope this helps. dime= 1.25mm gap for liner set up nickel= 1.85mm gap for shading set up as stated above… Read More
