Methodology

3 - 5 - 9

I worked on two tattoos back-to-back today. I’ve finally adapted to needle sizes, and thinking ahead of which needles might achieve a better outcome of the strokes i’m looking for. My methodology so far is to start small. 3 Round Liners are very hard to use, the needle is very small, so your hand needs to be steady. I felt confident lining the entire stencil with 3s, moving into 5s for medium-sized sharp fills and my favourite 9s for massive fills. Working this way has seemed to sharpen my designs, making the little details stand out more. I used to work in reverse ~
