No matter you are a beginner with the tattoo art, or you are already a professional tattoo expert, it is essentially important to know how to purchase correct tattoo needles with high quality. Tattoo needles are usually made by different conductive medals. Good tattoo needle will bring efficiency to your tattoo doing and make your tattoos look very different from those done with poor needles. There are a few facts that you must know about before you purchase your tattoo needles.
- Tattoo needles also functionalized into “liner” needle and “shader” needles. A tattoo needle is actually a group of small needles (the exact number vary from three to seven, but usually five of them) closely bound together. For a “liner needle”, there is hardly no space between the small needles, as for a “shader needle” the space is a bit larger. This is because the looser “shader” needle covers a larger area of the skin to send tattoo ink into the body.
- The final appearance of a needle depends on how it is tapered. Long tapered needles are usually used for a liner needle, while shorter tapered needles for the making of a shader needle. Different tattoo needles make differ quite much in price. But no matter what kind of needle you plan to purchase, make sure that it is a pre-sterilized disposable tattoo needle, and that they have a cutting edge instead of just a sharp point.
