There are four main types of needle groupings. Some have one specific use and others can vary depending on how the artist is using it. Tattoo Needles that we carry are pre-sterilized in individual blister packs. We carry tattoo round liner needles (tight), tattoo round shader needles (loose), and tattoo curved magnum needles. Our professional tattoo needles are used by professional tattoo artists around the world and are highly recommended. Below is a general explanation of the needle categories and how you can use different types of needles.
A tattoo machine is a hand-held device generally used to create a tattoo, a permanent marking of the skin with indelible ink. Modern tattoo machines use electromagnetic coils to move an armature bar up and down. Connected to the armature bar is a barred needle grouping that pushes ink into the skin.
A set of disposable gloves needs to be worn during each stage of tattooing: the cleaning of the tattooing station, tattooing the client, and the final cleaning of the tattoo. If you happen to touch anything besides the equipment or the client your gloves need to be changed in order to avoid contamination.
Tattoo inks consist of pigments combined with a carrier, and are used in tattooing. Tattoo inks are available in a range of colors that can be thinned or mixed together to produce other colors and shades. Most professional tattoo artists purchase inks pre-made (known as pre-dispersed inks), while some tattooers mix their own using a dry pigment and a carrier. Tattoo ink is generally permanent. Tattoo removal is difficult, painful, and the degree of success depends on the materials used. Recently developed inks claim to be comparatively easy to remove. Unsubstantiated claims have been made that some inks fade over time, yielding a "semi-permanent tattoo."
