I would suggest using a good 7rl starting out. If you are in the United States needle supply.com carry half way decent ones or piercingpros.com Ruthless needles are good. 7mag curved and 11mag curved will do you really good.

I actually posted this picture in my other thread but I wanted to post it again so I could pose a question as well. I know this kind of thing varies immensely from region to region but I was wondering what you guys would charge for something like that. I did that on a friend and I gave them a break on the price. Im just curious to see what something like that would go for somewhere else in the country/world (I’m American btw. Connecticut to be more specific). So if someone came in to your shop and asked for this what would be your estimate? It’s obviously on a bicep. And it’s pretty big. I don’t know if you can tell from the photo but it starts at the top and goes pretty much down to the ditch/crook of the arm. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks
I have a shop here in the U.S as well.. I would have charged at-least $180-$200. Your work is solid with really good line work.. Don’t under-price your work. You are good!!

Lol!! Freedom of speech!! No hating here!! I always get those clients that want these tattoos fixed they got from blow joe down the road, and then they get mad when i tel them how much i am gonna charge to fix the mess they have.Everyone has mess ups when they start. But to many people don’t know the difference between a bad tattoo and a good tattoo..

I would say that you have the back spring bent to much and has to much force..

You should really try to you at least a 7mag M1 or 9mag M1 in your work. Round shadders tear the skin very easy and are very hard to get a solid fill and also are hard to fade colors

I know were your getting at guys, and to somepoint I would just have left it were it was.
if it wasent for my brother though, he was the one who first made me aware of the bad talking. And those occasions, he was the first to back talk them. Saying stuff like; he would never let her touch him with a poker. Thats what makes me a bit sad, I know its a free world and stuff. And maybe I should just leave it as it is.
He got his last name tattooed on his forearm, and its crisp and nice looking. But it hasent healed yet, so im waiting to see the end result.
I have looked into her things, even though she has a closed group on facebook. She uses metal grips but dosent have an autoclaver. She bleaches her tubes. And works from her closed balchony.
Well Ill just leave it as it is. Be the bigger person, and only rant in this place ;)
I am by no means a hatter! But, with that being said we do have a responsibility as tattoo artist to make sure our craft is kept safe, and if you knowingly know she is re-using tubes and grips without an autoclave you need to report her to the local health department. I hate it when some idiot don’t care no more for human life to take short cuts around tattooing just to make a buck!!! People like that are the ones that have gave at home tattoo artist a bad name!! That and piss poor art work! I would either have a talk with her to let her know what she is doing is wrong or report her.. Sorry if that pisses anyone off but thats the way i feel!

Thanks bro i appreciate the help.. I bought a bottle of perfect blue by alla prima/arcane and it is the hands down best blue i have ever used!! It flies into the skin and heals even brighter than what the bottle seems!! It also works good when feathering it out… I can not wait to try more of their pigments

You need to set some guidelines before each tattoo.. Come up with your own consent.
