How to Insert Needle in Tattoo Machine | Tattoo Artist


My main palette with my needles is a nine
liner and an 11 magnum. We went over the magnum as it’s stacked like
a broom. And my liners, actually I use a large liner
which is called an old school nine. I get these from Bicknee. They’re a really good product and they give
a really, really, really thick outline, like a bold outline, but you can also get tight
with it also. Also, we have a difference between bug pins,
which is a 008 and/or a standard taper which is a 12. These two, they may look similar in width,
but one of these which actually is the smaller one, is actually a 15 mag and it is the same
size – actually a little smaller than my 11 mag. So with bug pins, they’re very good for doing
very soft portraitistic tattoos. I use them a lot for portraits or black-and-grey. You can do really soft black-and-grey because
what happens is the smaller needle grouping – the needle itself is actually smaller in
diameter, so it creates a smaller hole when it punctures the skin. So you can create – like, if for instance
you have a stipple effect, you’re going to have a lot more smaller stipples with the
bug pin rather than the standard taper. Standard taper is really, really good for
color. I use them primarily just for color. You can do it in black-and-grey if it’s just
more of a loose black-and-grey piece where it’s not really, really, really, really soft. They’ll work fine, but I really prefer to
use bug pins with my softer stuff like portraits. On this one, this is also a nine, which these
two are both nines but this one is dramatically smaller and it almost represents a five liner. It’s a really tight grouping, but it’s still
soldered out long enough where that it still can open up and do a thicker line. It’s a bug pin too, so I like to use it for
little, small details, which gives a contrast with the other bigger nine. So I’m using two nines, but one is a little
bit bigger than the other one.
