I've only recently gotten a handmade coil tattoo machine with a somewhat decent power supply along with some fake skins to study with. I have noticed that in order to get a very saturated and non choppy line I need to usually go over a line at least twice. If I want to do a good line with 1 pull...
so I have some reelskin on my wish list since it looks thicker and so many people here seem to like it, however until then I have a stack of fake skin that is a .05” (1.27 mm) thickness, cheapest amazon stuff.
what would be recommended to put underneath the skin to keep from clogging the tubes...

Do you guys have any advice on how to get...
Ok so I’ve ran into a couple of issues when doing my first portrait on fake skin.
1) The stencil will not come off! I’ve tried alcohol and bleach. It’s just not budging.
2) my shading isn’t smooth. I don’t quite know what I’m doing wrong?
Any help appreciated!
Needles- 7rs 4f
8 wrap coils (both machines)
7rs on a machine with a short spring
4f on a machine with a long spring

Done with xion, many variation of carts, tiger(Work in progress) skull done with 13M bugpin 7CM and 3rl
cherries done on low volts 5-6, (didnt bother to wipe stencil away) also i used 7CM and 3RL. My first attemps to do more realistic things ;)...

Thank you for the support
